Software Test Lead – get close to the satellite industry

Curious about what’s going on behind the scenes in the space industry when satellites are being designed?

At TICRA, we develop state-of-the-art antenna modeling software for some of the leading space agencies and research institutions all over the world.

To ensure the highest possible software quality, we now wish to professionalize our test-setup to become even better – and you will get a key role in making this happen.

Join our development teams

At our office in Copenhagen, you will formally be part of our Frontend and DevOps team with 6 developers. Together, we focus on the user interface of our applications and the surrounding build- and test systems.

We collaborate closely with our backend developer teams and with our antenna consultancy team. And you will take on a crucial role as the one leading testing activities across all these teams.

Improve our testing efforts from A to Z

As our new Software Test Lead, you will be responsible for coordinating and leading testing activities for TICRAs satellite antenna modeling software.

You will work closely with our project developer teams, product leads, and other stakeholders to ensure comprehensive test coverage, adherence to project timelines, and a continuous improvement of our quality assurance processes.

More specifically, you will:

  • Define a test strategy and design
  • Apply test methodologies during feature design, providing sparring with product leads and developers to ensure we have the right test cases
  • Plan automated/manual tests and report on readiness for release
  • Execute and manage end-to-end testing processes – including reviewing test reports, finding bugs, and making trouble tickets
  • Follow up and push for resolutions of open tickets to ensure high quality and stable tests

Why join TICRA?

We offer you a unique opportunity to work in a knowledge-driven company that has delivered state-of-the-art software products to the global satellite industry for half a century. You will work alongside some of the best engineers and researchers in the field, who are passionate about their work and focused on knowledge sharing and teamwork.

Employee well-being is a top priority for us, and we are committed to supporting your growth. Joining our company means enjoying a positive work-life balance in an international and socially engaging environment. We value the development of both your professional and personal skills, ensuring that our employees thrive.

Experience with test management and test automation

There are different ways into this position. But we imagine that you:

  • Have experience with test automation, manual testing and test management
  • Like to participate in relevant discussions with stakeholders across TICRA – and advocate for the advantages of a continuous focused approach to testing
  • Are interested in gaining an understanding of electromagnetics and antenna modeling
  • Are a citizen of a NATO/EU country
  • Speak and write English effortlessly
