We are seeking a Software Test Engineer looking for a dynamic opportunity located in San Diego, CA. Position requires US citizenship and the ability to obtain a DoD security clearance.


This effort is a multi-year program with long-term growth potential to modernize our military aircraft Mission Planning System (MPS) for international customers. The MPS enables aircrews to quickly plan, analyze, re-plan, and rehearse missions using digital maps and 3D terrain imagery to simulate the planned flight route. Information generated by the MPS is uploaded to the aircraft to initialize the avionics suite and to improve pilot situational awareness during flight. The recorded aircraft data with captured video is downloaded for replay during the after-action review to provide the aircrew with visual and audio reconstruction of flight events for enhanced flight training instruction.

  • Follow developed test strategy, direction and schedule as applied to the software test effort.

  • Make inputs to the Test Manager / Test Lead to help improve test methodology with an emphasis on repeatable, automated tests throughout the lifecycles of the projects under the MPS program to include executing software unit tests, ad hoc functional testing, integration testing and formal qualification testing.

  • Report test status to project management and collaborate with the software development team to resolve software issues/anomalies based on a comprehensive understanding of the MPS technical requirements.

  • The candidate will be able to work under general supervision with results being reviewed upon completion for adequacy in meeting program objectives.
