Job description

Duties: The selected applicant will join the team of programmers to develop a software engine for a real-time brain stimulator and software modules that facilitate neural data processing. This role requires fluency in Python and C++, knowledge of data structures and algorithms as well as ability to work with medium to large code-bases. We are particularly interested in candidates who are well versed in high-level object-oriented techniques including knowledge of design patterns. The ideal candidate will possess exceptional system development skills, be able to effectively communicate new ideas to the management and peer developers, be well versed in modern software development practices including version control, regression testing, software documentation and continuous integration. Past experience in developing scientific tools (e.g. statistical package, simulation toolkit, graphics library, data-mining tool, etc.) or completing data science projects is a strong plus. The selected candidate will interface with senior research staff at multiple institutions and equipment vendors to deliver high quality, robust software platform for next-generation real-time brain stimulation and recording.

Qualifications: Required qualifications:
* A Bachelor's degree with at least 1- 3 years of relevant experience or Master's degree. Recent graduates who completed a complex software project as part of their academic curriculum are strongly encouraged to apply as well.
