This is an excellent opportunity to join a top-notch team of software engineers and scientists who are developing innovative solutions to augment training and optimize human performance for the United States Air Force, NASA, National Institutes of Health, and other organizations. We are looking for an engineer experienced in signal processing, time series analysis, and/or machine learning who can contribute to the development of software aimed at interpreting information provided by wearable devices such as Fitbits and iWatches. The ideal candidate will have experience with good software development practices including the use of source control, code reviews, and an understanding that writing DRY, maintainable code requires constant effort from all team members. In addition to being technically competent, we are looking for engineers who love to learn and who have a track record of self-motivated investigation and tinkering. If you have pursued non-work or non-school related projects simply because you like building things and are not afraid of the challenges associated with exploring and learning outside of your comfort zone, we want to hear from you.

We seek engineers who are energized when they help conceive ideas and solutions that have not yet been discovered, who take the initiative in leading engineering efforts and learning what they need to know so they can generate successful results, who enjoy development on the cutting edge of technology where the boundaries are open-ended, and who enjoy working with other team members in an environment where the opportunities are limited only to the degree that we can get amazing things done.
