Job Description:

GPS Manufacturer/Distributor

As a leading worldwide provider of navigation devices and wearable technology, our focus is on developing, designing and supporting superior products. Our advanced technology promotes performance, safety and ease of use in every market we serve. That makes us an engineering and technology company with a keen focus on recruiting talent in those fields. But the same vertical integration business model that keeps all design and manufacturing processes in-house also gives us the incentive to hire top performers from different backgrounds, including operations, finance and accounting, information technology, sales, marketing and communications.


Associates get the royal treatment at Garmin. Regardless if you?re a newbie or a veteran, engineers dream it, design it and use it. Here, you will be surrounded by others who share the same passion about what they do every day. We offer a relaxed team environment (no dress code!) where advancement is found from sharing knowledge, not hiding it! While we promise you a lot of responsibility, you also will have the opportunity to have ownership over projects?oh, and we promise you there will be some fun mixed in there, too!


We are seeking a full-time Test Software Engineer at our world headquarters in Olathe, Kansas. In this role, you will be responsible for developing test software for Garmin?s communication and navigation products in a team-oriented environment.

Other essential functions include:

  • Develop test software in C, C++, LabWindow?s CVI, TestStand, or other selected languages in accordance with Garmin?s software development methodology to test the performance and functionality of Garmin?s communication and navigation products

  • Support production personnel in introducing new test software and equipment to production

  • Perform maintenance and support activities for test software already in use


Qualified candidates possess a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Math or Physics or a technical field relevant to Garmin?s business needs for this role, or a minimum of 8 years work experience performing a role substantially similar to the essential functions of this job description. Other requirements include:  

  • Must possess experience and/or training in high level computer languages such as C/C++ and scripting languages relevant to Garmin?s business needs

  • Must possess relevant experience and/or training in data structures or object oriented design methodology relevant to Garmin?s business needs

  • Must possess relevant education and/or experience in software design, development and maintenance, as required for the successful performance of the essential functions of the position

Relevant experience in LabWindow?s CVI or TestStand and training in GPIB/IEEE interfaces with test equipment is highly preferred!

We offer a choice of high value medical, dental and vision plans with low or no premiums, to fit your and your family?s preferences.
