Software QA Engineer

Job Description

As a member of the HEEDS development team, QA Engineers participate in all aspects of the product release cycle, with a high level of collaboration with the software development teams. This includes creating and maintaining feature testing plans, automated and manual test cases, running those tests, tracking the results, and ensuring defects are tracked and fixes verified. The QA team is also involved with release acceptance criteria, identifying opportunities to improve product robustness, code testing coverage, and even things like productivity and process improvements. In a nutshell, the quality assurance team has primary responsibility for product robustness.

The HEEDS applications interface with various computer aided design, engineering, and simulation systems. Experience with one or more popular industry tools (such as Star-CCM+, Simcenter 3D, Abaqus, LS-DYNA, Autodesk products, or similar) will be helpful. 

Our team’s priorities are, in order: 1) Deliver robust software. 2) Deliver on time. 3) Deliver new features. The QA group is a big part of that, not a second-class citizen like what may be the case in some projects. If software quality and robustness is important to you, and you have some related skills or experience, then this job may be the one for you. Apply today!

Job responsibilities:
  • Ensure product robustness
  • Creation and maintenance of test plans, automated tests and manual test definitions
  • Execution and verification of the test plans, via manual and/or automated testing
  • Producing bug reports and other issues as needed
  • Some DevOps tasks related to testing and quality may also be part of the job
Mentorship and Career Growth:
Our expanding Simcenter Software Development team is a broad mix of experience and background; all are committed to mentoring and onboarding new team members. Continuous learning is a key part of our culture, with learning days for the entire organization several times a year. At Siemens we encourage everyone to own their career and enable team members to take on more complex projects and services over time.

Team Culture:
We have a strong emphasis on balancing life and work with individual autonomy. At Siemens you will be working with colleagues spread around the globe; we celebrate the diversity that different cultures bring to our organization.
