Software Engineer - Boulder, CO

Advancements in pharmaceutical, semiconductor, display, aerospace, and life science companies are all requiring cleaner and cleaner working environments, water, and process chemicals. Even small amounts of microscopic contaminants can ruin batches of medicines or wafers; affect the performance of integrated circuits; or render high-resolution displays unwatchable. The challenge is how to detect contaminates approaching the size of water molecules no bigger than 1nm across (approximately 1/100,000 the thickness of a piece of paper) reliably and rapidly to enable companies to make real time decisions and avoid costly impacts to their business.

Particle Measuring Systems has been on the forefront of inventing and advancing particle measurement technologies for over 50 years. Taking particle measuring capabilities to the next level requires new innovations and approaches to further advancements in technologies pushing the limit of what is physically possible.
