The Software Test Engineer develops software used in mass production environments to calibrate, measure, and interface custom test fixtures and processes used in contract manufacturer sites to build cutting edge AR/VR products. You will be involved from initial concept to execution and maintenance of specialized AR/VR specific applications that demand high reliability. You will be responsible for developing/integrating test algorithms, interfacing with hardware using vendor and internal APIs, building distributed and resilient algorithms to process data, and interfacing with logging, databases, and restful services. The ideal candidate is a self-driven individual working in a cross-functional team environment and will be responsible for planning the design, development, and implementation of factory test software. You will enforce manufacturability, testability and ensure cost-effective designs are implemented for testing and automation systems, software, and equipment. This position will have responsibilities for NPI test development and sustaining support of production released test and automation systems. You must be responsive, flexible and able to succeed within an open collaborative peer environment. We are looking for someone with a productive mindset who can apply their expertise to solve problems in creative, insightful ways.
