At SCIEX, we take software quality seriously. We strive to develop state of the art scientific software for our mass spectrometry products to meet the needs of a wide variety of markets and applications. We now need to develop and grow a relatively junior software verification team, as due to the scientific nature of the software, many of our verification specialists are scientists with applicable domain expertise, and not test engineers.
