Job Summary

As a Staff Software Engineer, you'll be responsible for governing the software development lifecycle (SDLC) for a wide array of measurement and automated system software projects in support of ingestible sensor manufacturing. The role will require you to lead a cross-functional team to develop instrument control and measurement software, as well as data analytics and visualization applications. You will also be expected to contribute as a team-member by coding data-parsing modules, writing database queries, or developing application programming interfaces.

In this role you'll be expected to gather requirements from stakeholders, select the appropriate technologies, come up with a robust overall software design, and develop a software solution meeting these requirements. Your solutions are expected to be performant, reliable, and in compliance with the SDLC, with a code base that is well organized and documented.

The Staff Software Engineer is a senior position that also requires responsibility above and beyond SDLC governance. As such, you'll be expected to represent our group in collaborative process and engineering meetings.
