We are searching for a Staff Senior Systems Engineer to join our extraordinary team in Colorado Springs, CO
This is a position supporting the AEHF and Milstar programs, which provide worldwide, secure, survivable, protected communications. You will support the Mission in 3 areas – training users on system deliveries, supporting the development team with an operational perspective in both integration and testing and supporting other programs as needed.
You will have a strong background in working with users to help them understand system definition and usage. Experience with deployed software systems, specifically related to military satellite communications systems is highly desirable. You will be able to convey all aspects of the system to ensure the operational system can meet the customers and users requirements.
You will provide an operations focus to the team by helping them understand both the strengths and weaknesses of their designs and implementation. You will support inspections as well as run integration tests with the development team. You will also provide support to our System Level Test program for requirements sign-off.
The Mission Planning Element (MPE) testing incorporates robust communications planning emphasis with the goal of identifying all critical planning problems and working with developers to gather data for problem resolution prior to final delivery. Testing is conducted primarily on day shift with occasional off-shift work to accommodate resource schedules. Test staff will work closely with the Help Desk, GSSC, RSSC, 4SOPS, 614th, User Integration, Schriever AFB Technical Advisors, and MPE development team personnel. The test team is located at Peterson AFB, Colorado or at the LM Citadel facility in Colorado Springs.
Some of your day to day responsibilities will include:
• Creating regression test plans and Discrepancy Report (DR) test plans for MPE releases, and perform regression and DR testing
• Develop operationally realistic test data files. Develop generic regression test scenarios to ensure total MPE functionality, simulate operational usage of software, and incorporate requirements (DR) level testing for each release
• Work with the user community to identify operational concepts and procedures to ensure test plans are consistent with operational procedures
• Support the analysis, troubleshooting, investigation, resolution and documentation of problems discovered during MPE testing
• Testers will need to be comfortable working in a dynamic and flexible environment and will represent the Milsatcom team with customers and outside organizations in a positive and effective manner
You will support cross business opportunities as needed – specifically with the COOLS program.
