Job Description

We are developing multiple avionics systems that need to be tested using an increasing level of automation and fidelity as they mature. This includes a variety of automated tests to ensure sub-system functionality, including testing hardware, testing the software that runs on the hardware, and testing the combination of the hardware and software together. There are two stages to this work. 

First, we require the sub-systems to be integrated with an existing test automation framework (internally called SPOCK). This primarily involves writing of tests for SPOCK that will then be executed on various sub-system HITL systems to validate the hardware and software. This is accomplished by following SPOCK docs and be able to write test scripts (python) using libraries developed by the SPOCK teams, or configure SPOCK tests using JSON (depending on functionality needed).

Second, we expect the SPOCK-enabled subsystem HITL environments to be connected to a CI/CD environment to enable automated hardware testing of software changes. This work involves connecting an existing CI/CD pipeline (primarily implemented using standard AWS CodeSuite tools) to the HITL environments. Ideally this work is performed in close concert with the SPOCK integration so as to more easily enable the CI/CD integration.

Expected Tasks

To support integration of avionics systems with SPOCK/HITL, candidates would be expected to:
