Test Engineer

We are seeking a Test Engineer for a very important client

A contributor on a Test Development team focused on developing hardware and software test sets for RF/microwave systems. This individual will be responsible for interpreting product specifications and developing necessary software test sequences and test fixturing. The individual will also be responsible for integration activities including accurately characterizing the product performance under test on multifaceted test equipment technologies. This position requires the individual to be able to isolate and resolve design defects in both hardware and software. The individual will be required to maintain ownership for all aspects of their test development projects. The candidate must be willing to work off-shifts or extended weeks to meet schedule milestones. Successful performance will require driving manufacturing test development for complex RF/ microwave systems, and integrating tests into a lean manufacturing environment. Applicant will be subject to a security investigation and is required to meet eligibility requirements for DoD Clearance.
