Candidates should also be very agile in developing flexible software with respect to scientific, experimentation methods and usage patterns. Additional responsibilities include:

  • Designing, developing and maintaining core system features, services and engines

  • Helping define product features, drive the system architecture, and spearhead the best practices that enable a quality product

  • Working with scientists and other engineers to investigate design approaches, prototype new technology, and evaluate technical feasibility

  • Operating in an Agile/Scrum environment to deliver high quality software against aggressive schedules
