Lead Test Development technical positions all require similar types of activities, but the required level of technical expertise increases with the higher level positions. A Lead Test Development Engineer is required to be able to perform medium to high complexity engineering work. The types of work performed include development of test solution quotes, development of test solutions, test crisis support and continuous improvement of core competency. The lead engineer is expected to lead smaller teams of engineers and/or technicians in driving a project from concept to completion. The lead engineer is expected to work directly with the team’s project managers in interfacing with the customers on a daily basis providing project status, identifying risks earlier and providing mitigation or contingency plans.
