Software Tester, Mid

The Challenge:

When a user tries new software, they expect it to be intuitive and run smoothly. Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful software development – and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need you, an experienced test engineer who knows how to thoroughly test software and work with developers to make sure our team releases the best software possible. 

As a test engineer on our team, you’ll work closely with a team to develop innovative applications that address our clients’ most challenging business, technology, and system integration needs. You’ll support and test Navy applications that provide a modern user interface (UI), structured and unstructured data entry, storage, advanced search, and data analytic capabilities. Using agile methodologies to test architecture, you'll help generate data and execute the test cases to see how the software performs, then document the results and communicate defects to the development team so they can start improving the tool. This is your chance to gain skills in architecture, functionality, design patterns, and modern integration strategies while establishing your software testing experience. Join us as we develop software solutions to modernize the Navy.
