Lead Software Engineer

Westchester, NY, United States Full Time

Why We Need You:

We got awesome hardware and need software to match it! WAZER isn’t just the world’s first desktop waterjet cutter but the world’s first solution that allows any computer-literate user to go from their idea to cutting any material within minutes. So software is a critical piece of WAZER’s offering. The WAZER multiplatform application will allow a user to define exact cutting paths on their source materials. To do this the software will need to be able to upload and convert drawing files into a rendered interactive format that is presented to the user. The user will be able to adjust and tune their cutting paths based on their uploaded 2D drawings and will be guided through the basic setup of the machine. Lastly, the software will need to be able to convert all the adjusted paths into a WAZER machine readable format (already defined) which will produce the consumer’s desired cut. You will lead the charge in building this functionality with an intuitive, waterjet-specific workflow.

Your Daily Role:

Lead full stack software engineer that will be responsible for the technical leadership of the entire WAZER software product including:

  • Determining application architecture
  • Make language and framework choices
  • Executing on numerous elements of the build
  • Managing elements of the build that are not within your capability by means of contractors
  • Writing modular maintainable code which is well tested
  • Practicing modern development workflows of code reviews and iteration planning to accurately scope out features and deliver them in a timely manner

Must Have Qualifications:

  • You have deployed consumer facing applications
  • You are a software generalist that is familiar with numerous modern frameworks
  • You are proficient in a set of client-side and server-side languages (ie. JS, Ruby, Python, Go, etc.)
  • You have a professional application management approach to continuous integration, testing, and pushing builds to various staging and production environments
  • You have a great eye for design, an appetite to build ambitious products and an ability to prioritize in order to deliver on time
  • You can work with the product development team to add meaningful feature sets over time to the overall WAZER solution. This could include integration of vision algorithms, path optimizations, new software manipulated hardware systems, etc.

Nice to Have Qualifications:

  • You have engineering team leadership experience while remaining in a code contributor role
  • You have solo product experience that went from concept to shipping to maintenance
  • You are a participant in the open source community
  • You have design experience and can use tools such as sketch or illustrator to communicate application design direction
  • You are a participant in the maker community

What We Offer You:

  • A team of highly motivated, dedicated individuals working together without ego
  • Competitive equity, salary, and benefit package
  • Access to tools, machines, and space to make whatever projects you may have come to life
  • Opportunity to bring an awesome piece of hardware to a variety of markets and individuals

Location & Environment:

Our facility becomes a playground in the off hours. You are encouraged to design, make, and work on whatever personal projects you may have at the time. You may see brewing equipment, race car parts, plants, and art pieces around the office. Who knows what inspiration we use for the next problem we need to solve!

As an early-stage startup, you’ll inherently spend more time at work than your traditional 9-5. Thus, we’ve located ourselves in Westchester, NY, which is only 30 minutes from the heart of NYC but just around the corner of plenty of outdoors activities. You’ll be able to find whatever it is you enjoy doing just around the corner!

Furthermore, and our personal favorite perk, you’ll be working in an environment that is simultaneously our office, ideation studio, research lab, workshop, and final product assembly center, all under one roof. This allows us to collaborate and learn each other’s area of expertise, providing better solutions to our customers.
