Your Responsibilities

As a Tractor Software Test Engineer, you will be accountable for software verification, test planning, and test execution for embedded software on tractors. The focus for the tractor hydraulic subsystem testing is on the transmission control subsystem. You will be integrated with and located in the Waterloo software delivery team which develops tractor hydraulic control software. In addition you will:

  • Create software verification test plans for the features being delivered and defects being fixed once per software planning session (that is, once every two-month period).
  • Define the appropriate level of regression testing required in each round of testing.
  • Increase test case automation for the existing test suites.
  • Be accountable for software verification and test execution.
  • Be responsible for tracking metrics as defined by the Software Test Supervisor (requirements to test case coverage, test case data, test results, defects found, defects escaped).
  • Assure the availability of test environments (Model in the Loop (MiL), Software in the Loop (SiL), Hardware in the Loop (HiL), Vehicle in the Loop (ViL).) and define which test environments to use based on the test strategy.

What Skills You Need

  • One or more years of experience working in mechatronics; including a solid understanding of electrical and electronics, hydraulics, and mechanical systems.
  • One or more years of control system experience preferably related to propulsion/power generation systems and/or agriculture equipment.
  • One or more years of experience with embedded control systems in either product development or product test.
  • One or more years of experience with electronic test tools and simulation tools to assist in analysis and verification.

What Makes You Stand Out

Other areas of experience or interest that will help us place you on the right team include:

  • Experience working with Model Based Software Design (MBSD) and/or system simulation (For example, experience using Matlab or Simulink).
  • Experience working with test case automation tools (For example, experience using ECU-Test).
  • Experience working in an Agile/Scrum software development environment.
  • One or more years of experience with CAN bus and tools used for testing and analysis.
  • Experience operating Agricultural / off-road equipment.
  • ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) Certification or equivalent.


Ideally, you will have a degree or equivalent work experience in the following: Bachelors of Science in Electronics/Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Technology, or other relevant discipline.
