Cyber Test Engineer, Mid

The Opportunity:

When a user tries new or updated software and tools or launches a new version of a system, they expect it to be intuitive and run smoothly. Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful system and software development and implementation, and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need you, an experienced test engineer who knows how to thoroughly test software tools and work with vendors, engineers, and developers to make sure our team evaluates new and existing tools and software our client utilizes or plans to utilize prior to integration into the existing environment.

As an automated test engineer on our team, you’ll help our Cyber Engineering and DevSecOps team analyze the creation of processes and experiments to test the functionality and performance of a variety of Cyber tools, systems, hardware, and software both on-premises and in the cloud. Throughout the engineering and DevSecOps process for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD), you’ll ensure the highest quality using industry-recognized testing tools. You’ll automate continuous security and performance testing and monitor health of software and systems. You know the need for “baked-in” security, so you’ll run security scans using tools like ACAS and interpret the results to be fed back in as improvements to the design and architecture.

On our team, you’ll function as part of Test and Evaluation (T&E) Integrated test teams to develop and coordinate evaluation plans. You’ll execute the evaluation plans on data collected by the testing tasks. You'll research new technologies and open-source tools to streamline development, testing, and operational activities. You’ll support the development of Government T&E documentation, including T&E Strategy, T&E Master Plan, Event Test Plans, Test Readiness Assessments, and T&E Reports. You’ll work with other test organizations to support T&E program integration and provide specialized T&E capabilities tailored to system functions, level, maturity, and performance areas. You'll plan and execute performance analysis and review planned acquisition approaches to support T&E schedule alignment with decision maker needs for T&E support. You'll coordinate with program Systems Engineering (SE) and review T&E SE information to leverage functional analysis, system descriptions, parameter selection and dependencies, modeling and simulation, and initial performance risk assessments to inform evaluation planning.
