Invincea Labs, the research arm of Invincea, is looking for a Senior Research Engineer to help transform research ideas into scalable systems that work in the real world. You'll lead a small, focused team working to research and develop solid, innovative solutions to big problems, where intelligence, experience, and initiative are highly valued.
Working directly with US Government R&D customers, we combine a willingness to explore and test new ideas and technologies with the ability to deliver working solutions. For that reason we're looking for a candidate with strong computer science fundamentals who also takes a 'product-first' approach to building software - you should care about the real-world functionality you are building.
Specifically, we're looking for a strong engineer with proven technical team/project lead experience to own and manage the product development of features from ideation and design to implementation for a custom web interface to a large-scale sensor network. This person should be comfortable on both the front- and back-end, and able to dive in on an existing code base and contribute immediately. A strong candidate will demonstrate expertise and the ability to drive technology adoption in one or two specific areas, such as test-driven development, API development, continuous deployment, or others.
• A four year degree in Computer Science, Computer/Electrical Engineering, or related Scientific Domain.
• 5+ years of professional experience (MS + 3 years of professional experience, Ph D +1 years)
• Fluency in Python
• Solid software engineering fundamentals
• Strong communication skills and proven effectiveness in leading lean, high-performance teams
• Experience with continuous development and integration
Due to security requirements, US Citizenship is required.
