Vacancy information

For our partner, the sector Development & Engineering is responsible for the specification and design of their products. In this sector, the department specifies, executes and controls the testing and integration of the various software systems into a software release. For rolling out new software changes, the software integration project manages, tests and integrates software components into a software release. The Software Test Engineer reports to the project leader of this software integration project and to the manager of the Test and Integration group.

Your job mission is to qualify the new software versions whether they behave according to their specification and provide a release advice.

Your main tasks will be:

  • Test Impact determination: In discussions with architects and developers, the impact of a release or service pack must be determined to be able to select existing testcases or create new testcases. The software test engineer will look at these deliverables from a customers point-of-view, and test from that system perspective
  • Software qualification: define and execute software qualification tests on the new proto type systems and on test benches. Every week a new development software baseline is released and must be tested on the test benches and the proto type systems. As much as possible should be tested on the test benches to relieve the claim on the very expensive proto type systems. Therefore part of the challenge is also to make these test benches as representative as possible. 
  • Creating system tests: create system level test to qualify the system and the software and to test the reliability of the system and the different modules of the system. These system level tests are typically implemented in the form of Python scripts or as keyword driven testscripts.
  • Analysis: Do the first analysis of the problem to find the development project that is responsible for fixing the problem. After the problem has been dispatched you should assist the development project in defining and testing the solution and make sure that they deliver an adequate solution in time. 
  • Reporting: clear reporting on issues found, both in an issue database, as well as in overviews and in a test analysis report.
  • Continuous improvement: New issues coming from the field or factory must be analyzed why they were not caught in our own tests, and preventive actions must be defined to make sure future testcases will capture these issues.
