Define and execute software qualification tests on the new proto type systems and on test benches. Every week a new development software baseline is released and must be tested on the test benches and the proto type systems.

  • Reporting

Clear reporting on issues found, both in an issue database, as well as in overviews and in a test analysis report;

  • Continuous improvement

New issues coming from the field or factory must be analyzed why they were not caught in our own tests, and preventive actions must be defined to make sure future testcases will capture these issues.


  • Master or Bachelor degree in Computer Science, Physics, Electronics, Mechanics, Mathematics or comparable;

  • ISTQB certification preferred.


  • Experience in testing high-tech systems;

  • Experience deducting test plans from documents and implicit knowledge of people;
