Northrop Grumman Aeronautics Systems is seeking a Principle Software Quality Engineer/ Software Quality Engineer reporting to the Software Quality Manager working on our E2/C2 program. This position is located in Melbourne, FL.

The E-2D gives the warfighter expanded battlespace awareness, especially in the area of information operations delivering battle management, theater air and missile defense, and multiple sensor fusion capabilities in an airborne system.

The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is a game changer in how the Navy will conduct battle management command and control. By serving as the "digital quarterback" to sweep ahead of strike, manage the mission, and keep our net-centric carrier battle groups out of harm's way, the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is the key to advancing the mission, no matter what it may be. .

With a two-generation leap in radar sensor capability and a robust network enabled capability, Advanced Hawkeye will deliver critical, actionable data to joint forces and first responders. These advances provide warfighters with the necessary situational awareness to compress the time between initial awareness and active engagement.

  • Participate in bid and proposal efforts to provide cost estimates.

  • Review customer, system and software requirements to ensure the flowdown of requirements is complete and unambiguous.

  • Review and verify design documents meet appropriate standards.

  • Perform process audits of software development processes to assure compliance to established policies, procedures, work instructions, and program specific plans.

  • Examine the products associated with the preparation and configuration control of software test environments to assess the team's readiness to enter formal testing.

  • Evaluate and ensure software suppliers possess the capability and capacity necessary to execute and deliver procured software with unquestionable quality.

  • Facilitate thorough root cause analysis on major findings and ensure appropriate corrective and preventive actions are developed and implemented in a timely manner.

  • Conduct data analysis, data integration, and data management
