Advanced Weapons Test Engineer

The Challenge:

How do we know if systems we deploy to warfighters in the desert will work in the intense dry heat? How can we be sure equipment we design can actually be used by a day-to-day user without an engineering background? When you build some of the most mission critical systems in the world, you can't leave anything to chance. That's why we need you - a test engineer who understands the operational environment and how to make sure our systems will solve real problems in the real world.

As a test engineer leading our team, you'll help clients understand the functionality and performance of 4th and 5th generation platforms and weapon systems. Far beyond a simple pass/fail, your team will create evaluations that use statistical data to design the most efficient and effective tests. Your team's ability to test a full range of functions in operationally representative scenarios will ensure warfighters worldwide can rely on their weapon systems equipment. Once testing is complete, your team will provide test reports with recommendations that reflect real-world understanding of system capabilities and limitations. As a technical leader, this is an opportunity to use your experience to shape test engineering while expanding expertise in the development and operational testing of advanced weapon systems. Join us as we use technical and engineering skills to develop and evaluate weapon system solutions to support DoD warfighters.
