Software Engineer

San Francisco, CA
Engineering
Full-time
We support a community that includes some of the most talented people on the planet.  You’ll design for hardware engineers who are literally building the future today (think autonomous vehicles, spaceships, next-gen medical devices). You’ll partner with some of the most skilled manufacturers who produce the seemingly impossible. You’ll collaborate with an amazing team of engineers, scientists, and artists who are passionate about democratizing hardware development.

For decades, these innovators have had to endure long feedback cycles and high upfront costs to bring their products to market.  Our system drastically reduces that time and cost, allowing hardware engineers to experiment faster and with better outcomes. As a Software Engineer, you will play a critical role in shaping this system to become the de facto standard platform for hardware development.
