    Responsibilities

    Short task description:

    We build software applications that allow trains to safely and securely bring passengers to their destination. These applications have high availability requirements, so they are not allowed to stall or randomly crash.

    Maintenance Center (MCE), the application for which we are recruiting, is a diagnostic application located at the heart of the system. It behaves like an airplane's black-box for the system (can decode and replay past events), but also as a monitor of the current health state of the system. It detects, stores and graphically displays the abnormalities of the other connected modules, from malfunctions of the outdoor equipment, to malfunctions of other applications or malfunctions of the transmission system.

    Our application engineering team is seeking a smart and passionate software tester with solid knowledge of Linux scripting and computer networks.

    As part of our team, your responsibility will be testing complex application software for the railway field, including:

    • Specification of Test Cases on Requirements basis
    • Execution of manual and automated tests
    • Support of test environments, tools and simulation
    • Evaluation of the test output (coverage, traceability, progress)

    This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in full project life cycle and understand the importance in accuracy of testing for high availability systems.

    Test activities will be performed in close co-operation with experts in Bucharest / Stuttgart / Dresden and will require travelling between these locations.
