  • As necessary, provides engineering work products and documentation to manufacturing and document control as necessary for successful product release
  • Other duties as required and requested by management
  • To assist with the preparation and review of project scoping statements, feasibility studies, user requirement specifications, engineering specifications, test plans.
  • To prepare estimates for the tasks to be undertaken during implementation
  • To prepare and review system design specifications
  • To undertake all aspects of detail design, coding and testing of software prior to handover for formal testing and acceptance testing

Skills & Experience Required:
