  • Staff Software Engineer

    Pacific Biosciences is looking for a generalist software engineer to develop control software for existing and future DNA sequencers. The position will require utilization of a diverse set of technologies to control robot and device movement, detect and report environment changes, detect failures, identify recovery options, develop diagnostics and communicate status and state to the user interface and logs.


    Design and develop services and diagnostics for hardware devices in our instruments, by interfacing with motion control processors, custom FPGA firmware, and third-party devices over serial.
    Analyze complex software systems and collaborate with others to improve the overall design.
    Maintain good automated test coverage with a mix of unit, functional, and integration tests.
    Debug occasional issues within the mono project, bisect changes, and develop patches as needed.
    Will work closely with both hardware and electrical teams on designs and troubleshooting related to device and firmware performance.

    Bachelors and/or Masters in Computer Science, Engineering or other related discipline with 6+ years of work experience.
    Experience in hardware device control and communication, including control loops.
    Excellent coding skills and fluency in managed environments like C#, Java, or Python.
    Excellent interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills to be able to effectively interface with mechanical, electronic, quality, and manufacturing engineers.
    Excellent analytical and problem solving skills, a strong team player, able to take initiative, detail-oriented, and able to work effectively as part of a team. Thrives in a fast-paced environment, interacting with engineers and scientists from a variety of disciplines.

    Preferred Qualifications
