Our ideal candidate blends a solid background in engineering with the ability and desire to make a difference on program. While supporting large teams, we differentiate ourselves by seeking out challenges on program and providing unique solutions to the Prime Contractor and end customer. The candidate must have experience and knowledge with software engineering using object oriented methodologies to analyze and manipulate customer data sets. The candidate will work closely with systems engineers, integrators, testers, and customers to design, develop and support software applications throughout the development and maintenance life cycle.
Independently plan and perform test assignments involving definition of test and verification requirements, plans and sequences relative to complex software and hardware subsystems and resolve identified conflicting issues. Participate in and direct as needed some or all of a complex test program which includes establishing methods and techniques, planning tests, develop test requirements, writing test procedures andreports, and conducts tests utilizing comprehensive knowledge of these complex subsystems. Participate in test readiness reviews, participate indesign reviews, and conductaudits of test programs and facilities. Utilize a broad knowledge of precedents in test engineering andapply understanding of principles of related engineering and softwaretechnology to ensure test validity and integrity. Conduct tests, which include collaborating withothers in establishinglanguage,database, and computer simulation requirements and configuration management techniques.
