Major Focus of Position:

Software Testing is both the first ‘user/customer’ of the software and the primary internal ‘line of defense’ against defects; the feedback provided by Software Testing is critical to providing a quality product to both internal and external customers. Testers provide input to the software specifications and final product including usability, ‘look and feel’, technical refinements, input to user manuals, and training. Testers are an integral part of a team that implements and qualifies new methods, develops code enhancements, and resolves code deficiencies. This challenging role benefits from those who develop knowledge and experience with the application of the software to the nuclear design analysis of the plant types, fuel types, and operational strategies.

Perform software engineering testing in support of the Westinghouse nuclear core analysis and monitoring software systems in a strongly regulated software environment. Activities include tasks such as review of software requirements, development of software test plans including identification of test acceptance criteria, development of test case inputs and descriptions of expected results, execution of software test plans, and documentation of tasks, results, and conclusions in each of these activities. Software testing is a critical activity to providing quality products to our internal and external customers. Software testers work closely with the software development and engineering users to deploy applications and resolve issues.
