Job Description

BAE Systems is seeking a Cyber Integration & Test Engineer (IT&E) to join our team in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) Information Directorate in Rome, NY. AFRL is one of the nation's premier government research labs, with a mission of leading the discovery, development, and integration of affordable warfighting technologies for air, space and cyber forces.

The fast-paced environment requires a motivated engineer with a desire to solve challenging problems. If you are energetic, forward thinking, want to make a difference in the workplace and work on exciting projects, this is the role for you.

As a Cyber Integration & Test Engineer, you will use your skills in systems/software cyber testing techniques and methodologies to plan, design, develop, implement and document test solutions needed to support current and future software baselines.
