  • Operate with substantial latitude for un-reviewed action or decision. Reviews progress with management.
  • Act as team leader on less complex projects.


  • Strong C++ and embedded skills are required and must be documented on resume.
  • OO software architecture skills required and must be documented on resume.
  • Formal design process experience required.
  • Candidate should have either embedded RTOS (VxWorks preferred) or strong Unix experience in a multi-threaded environment or experience working in an environment to connect a new front-end to different devices – with the focus here is middleware and back-end development .
  • Knowledge typically gained through a minimum of 8 years of experience.  Must have experience with mission critical applications, preferably medical products or devices.  Knowledge of regulatory requirements preferred (e.g., FDA, DOD).
  • Knowledge required to perform at this level is acquired through completion of a Bachelor’s Degree in the area of Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent.


  • All candidates are required to submit proof of C++ proficiency by web-based testing. 
  • Our products embedded software is of medium or higher complexity.  The software framework is object oriented, uses multiple layers of inheritance, relies on many advanced features in C++, uses state machines, inter/intra process message queuing, sockets, and shared memory.  Therefore, embedded experience is helpful as foundational experience but strength in software architecture and C++ is more important than low-level device skills.
  • The candidate will be adding new features and enhancements to one of our existing product lines so it will require developing a strong understanding of the existing device through a study of documentation, experimentation with the current system, and consulting with peer engineering staff.
  • The skill of thorough and patient testing is also important, as performing a 'run' will take about 30 - 90 minutes to complete.  Debugging is mostly done through log file analysis (no debugger).
  • The candidate will be required to work with peer developers, SQA, Systems, Scientific, Clinical, and Customer support groups.
  • Our devices process blood so the candidate should not be sensitive to the sight or discussion of blood or needles.
