Senior Software Engineer

Worcester, MA
Full Time

Job type: Full-time, on-site

Experience: Mid level to Senior

Location: Worcester, MA

Do you want to work at the forefront of technology on complex problems that have never been solved before? Are you interested in being part of a company with a goal of getting its software on the Moon? Geisel Software is a fast-growing custom software development company with special expertise in embedded and application software, and a passion for staying ahead of the technology curve. Founded in 2011, we have a long history of delivering tech-forward web/cloud, robotic, IoT, and machine learning solutions. 

With a client list that includes NASA, Teledyne FLIR, iRobot, Wyss Institute at Harvard University, and more, we are embracing innovation to solve some of today’s toughest technical challenges. We’re looking for a hard-working individual to join our team in Worcester, Massachusetts who thrives on challenge and is a proven self-starter. This position will put your problem-solving skills to the test, whether that means tracking down answers on Google, from a colleague, or building a new solution on your own.

This Senior Software Engineer will be working on any one of a number of different projects depending on your particular skillset. That is most likely to be doing some form of robotics or supporting technologies (like 3D point clouds, computer vision, hardware interface, UI or networking connectivity). That’s most likely to involve a fair amount of Python and Modern C++ development, but will likely touch on plenty of other languages and technologies. In this role you’ll bring your past experience to bear on challenging problems, but undoubtedly be called on to learn new technologies and to create new and innovative solutions to push boundaries to the current state-of-the-art.

Come join some of the industry’s most talented software engineers and help us build extraordinary software!
