We are a software development team (currently 20+ people) working on implementing and testing software to support Positive Train Control (PTC). We develop and test both server and client .NET applications, ASP.NET web sites, and embedded Linux software.

What You Will Be Doing:

  • You will be working under the direction of our QA Manager 
  • Your job will be to help improve the quality of our software in the shortest amount of time. This includes designing and executing tests, troubleshooting software problems, monitoring and maintaining lab infrastructure, performing software configuration management (ex. make software builds), providing field support, documenting software behavior with the assistance of a technical writer, etc. 
  • Much of your work will be manual testing at the user interface level
  • Our group operates informally and with less documentation than we would like, so you will often be required to help ferret out requirements and design tests for them
  • Candidate must enjoy the challenge of a fast paced, technically complex project 
  • Our schedule is challenging but this is not a death march
  • Overtime is not normal and unlikely, and all work is expected to be completed at the office and labs
  • Candidates are expected to be in the office during core hours (8am-5pm)

  • Experience and willingness to be a team player, working with and helping other team members, and seeking their knowledge and assistance as necessary
  • Candidate must be a dynamic self-starter who can excel with limited direction. We are not looking for a tester who just wants to run manual or automated tests prepared by someone else. We need someone who can plan testing by engaging different stakeholders and development (including researching of requirements or other sources of information), designing and executing tests, and reporting results, with and without additional staff support, in order to make the biggest improvement possible in software quality
  • Candidates are required to have at least a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related technical field. Candidates without such a degree but with exceptional extensive professional experience may be considered, but a degree is preferred
