About the FactoryOS team & this role

Hadrian's FactoryOS ("Flow") is the backbone of our operations, automating everything from customer paperwork, to supply chain operations, to resource scheduling, error handling, hardware data integrations, quality inspection processes & more. 

This role is responsible for integrating the physical world into the factory data pipeline, which means bridging vendors' API's and connectors to the formats Flow speaks, allowing it to coordinate the actions of all machines, quality equipment, robotic support equipment, tooling & other hardware.

It is critical that the interfaces between physical equipment and Flow are rock solid, clearly communicating ‘state’ information even if a vendor APIs or connectors become unresponsive, we need a complete picture of what is happening with each piece of equipment in the factory at all times.

In this role you will

    • Build integrations to each hardware type using that vendors APIs or connectors
    • Switch fluidly between programming languages as required by vendor APIs or connectors, such as C, C++, C#, Python etc.
    • Build smart error handling, synching and state tracking code
