Spent the last 8 years working for the Department of the Navy testing software as a federal employee and as a contractor. This testing involved writing test procedures, test programs, and analysis programs. Tests were performed in accordance with waterfall and agile methodologies. Spent 6 years in the US Navy guarding and maintaining the launch system for Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles (SLBM). This required a high standard of performance and procedural compliance. This also required qualification for submarine warfare in a rigorous process designed to test personnel in security, firefighting, and damage control while in a stressful environment.

Engineer 2

Dahlgren, VA

As a member of an Integrated Testing group supporting NSWCDD, tested SLBM FCS software in waterfall development projects. This includes preparing test procedures based on supporting documentation and requirements and developing tools for analyzing test data and binary files. Any issues with the software or supporting documents required the drafting and submitting of Problem Reports (PR). PR resolution involved collaborating with the programmers at NSWCDD and General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS) and retesting the software after resolution of the fault. As part of the testing and preparations for testing, developed shell scripts to automate mundane tasks. Testing occurred in the weapon system Engineering Test Stations.
