Why Work For RMD in the Software Products Engineering?
“The complexity of the problems I work on every day excite me. Tactical missile systems are not trivial, and are multi-threaded working at different rates. There are lots of interactions in the system, and lots of use cases that can go wrong if we aren't diligent to test all the boundaries.” – KP
What excites you about the work you do at RMD – SPE every day?
“What excites about working at RMD/SPE every day is that I can be working on testing a program in C/C++, while next day I may be working on C++ GUI, or the day after in some other new programming language. I may be testing software one day or the other day I might be writing software. My point being here is that I'm always learning new things, new tasks and assignments all the time and that makes my job very interesting and fun.” – JS
“People are here from all over the country and the world, and through that I've had a great time learning about other places and cultures.” – BP
