    Job description

    We are looking a Software Integration and Verification Engineer to join our Ground Software Systems group in Darmstadt, Germany. You will be responsible for integration and verification testing primarily of spacecraft Mission Control Systems (MCS) software. Mission Control Systems are the primary tool used by satellite operators for monitoring and controlling spacecraft. The position includes integration and verification testing of other space-related ground segment elements such as Flight Dynamics and Mission Planning Systems. In addition to preparing and executing application software test procedures, the work requires good technical skills such as the ability to debug software, install and deploy complex software applications, and to develop automated test scripts.

     

    Responsibilities

    As a Software Integration and Verification Engineer, your tasks will typically include:

    - Integration of the various components of a MCS. This includes building new software versions, software installation and deployment, software configuration, adjustment of interfaces, analysis and solution to problems.

    - Generation and updates of test plans and test procedures, covering functional testing, performance and non-regression testing (both manual and automated testing).

    - Generation of test data that facilitate the software testing.

    - Execution and coordination of formal software verification and non-regression testing campaigns. This activity includes running the test procedures on the target system, generation of test reports, analysis of results, troubleshooting of problems.

    - Contribute, with the support of software developers, to the investigation of software problems, interacting with users (such as mission control system operators) when needed to understand the problems.

    - Follow-up reported problems to ensure that they are handled correctly by the maintenance teams, and that the provided changes correctly resolve the problem.

    - Contribute to development of the verification infrastructure: development of scripts / tools to perform installation checks, non-regression, functional and performance testing. Analysis and implementation of mechanisms or tools allowing the automatic or semi-automatic verification testing of the application software.

    - Maintaining the verification status of the application software traced to the requirements baseline.

    - Documentation: generation and updates of technical documents, such as installation manuals, user manuals and test reports.

    - Provide support to end users of the MCS, including customer support.

    - Participation to technical, progress and team meetings.
