Careers at Luther Consulting

Software Engineer in Test (SET)

We have an opening for a full-time position for a Software Engineer in Test (SET) in our Software Development department to lead the development of our automated testing efforts. Our current development efforts are focused on development using SQL Server, REST, React, Node, Typescript, and Java. We use the Scrum framework for our development process. Our applications focus on data collection as well as data visualization, presentation, and reporting. What’s fun and challenging in the area we work is that our customers vary from small community organizations to researchers at The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta. Figuring out how to have data make sense to various groups so that they can use the data to plan programs and prevent the spread of disease is very challenging. It’s also rewarding knowing we’re helping our customers and our community. Our customers are really cool people who are very patient, but have very complex needs. We foresee increased focus on developing novel ways for users to interact with the data collected by our systems.
