Software Engineer/Developer (MATLAB, python, Signal Analysis)

About Us:
Midé is a small but well-established research and development firm that provides innovative engineering solutions. We apply our system-level approach to projects in many areas, leveraging our core expertise in smart materials (such as piezoelectrics and SMA) and developing technological devices and systems. The foundation of our business is in primary R&D contracts with large corporations and US government agencies such as DoD and NASA, which we build into commercial products. The growth and success of our Slam Stick product – a suite of miniature, wireless, multi-sensor, high-definition data loggers and custom data analysis software – has lead us to expand our team.

Job Description:
We’re looking for a sharp, dedicated software development specialist to join our lean electrical/software engineering department. The candidate’s main responsibility will be the design and implementation of high-performance digital signal processing applications for both in-house experiments and customer-facing analysis software in MATLAB and Python (NumPy). The ideal candidate will have experience working efficiently with large multi-gigabyte datasets, and using parallel processing for the timely reduction and visualization of datasets, including out-of-core/larger-than-core datasets. The candidate will primarily work with a Python GUI software developer, and a few electrical engineers and embedded programmers responsible for developing data-acquisition system hardware.

At least Bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering field, with a strong background in software development for digital signal processing and analysis. Relevant engineering fields include computer science or computer engineering, but may include other engineering disciplines (electrical, aerospace, mathematics, physics, etc.) provided the required mathematical background and software development experience are there.
