Job Title: Software Engineer Location: Chandler, AZ or Oregon Duration: 12 Months C/C# are Musts C is optional Candidate will be responsible for rapid prototype and proof of concepts (POC) of software designing concepts that prior to integration in a larger software stack used in manufacturing; expected to participate in all phases of software development lifecycle of the prototypes and POCs; expected to develop both the prototypes/POC and supporting code/unit tests to demonstrate the key concepts being explored; engage with members of the team to understand the boundary conditions/key attributes of the prototype/POC and the appropriate performance metrics associated with the Prototype/POC. Partner with cross functional team to understand implementation constraints; Research design implementation options and propose implementation details. After each prototype/POC summarize the findings and review with cross functional teams. As needed, propose a design iteration to optimize the implementation. Implement and test different Middleware communication methodologies (RabbitMQ, gRPC, others) to characterize their overall performance/capability within the larger software stack. Other communication/integration touch-point involve the interaction between higher level software and lower level software which includes interaction with lower level device drivers and FPGA implementations. Daily Responsibilities/ Required Skills not limited to the following: Architect, develop, test, and document code and results for each Prototype/POC iteration. Develop, test and analyze results of Prototypes/POC in the middleware and lower level software. Optimize the code as needed and document performance trade-off consideration for final integration. Implement both Unit Test and System Level Testing Strategies to provide insight into the architectural and developmental model for the software concepts. 6+ years of Software experience in C/C/C#. Strong understanding of Object-Oriented Principles; Able to leverage language specific methodologies like Template (C), Public/Private Headers; Familiar software interfaces practices appropriate for the C/C#. Experience with Standard Library and Boost.
