Quality Assurance Specialist
America’s war fighters aren’t much concerned with whether something was delivered on schedule or on budget. What they DO want to know is that it will do exactly what it’s supposed to do…each and every time.
That makes you the most important person in the world to our war fighters.
Because as a Quality Assurance Specialist, it’s your job to make sure that the thousands of items the Department of Defense requests are of the same uncompromising quality as the dedicated men and women who use them.
You’ll monitor just about everything America needs for its national security– aircraft carriers, attack helicopters, field gear, satellites, software. It’s no exaggeration to say the military couldn’t survive for a day without the equipment you monitor for quality.
You may work out of an office, or on the production floor at a single large contractor site. You’ll get on-the-job training, a personal mentor, and lots of continuing education.
QA Specialists have backgrounds in many different fields, including electronics, engineering, hardware, software, and more. QA has a place for every kind of discipline. You must be able to interpret complex contracts and other legal documents, as well as detailed performance standards.
At DCMA, we get it all. And in Quality Assurance, we get it right.
