SW Application Developer

job summary:
SW Application Development Engineer

This role is for a creative, self-motivated software engineer to develop instrumentation and machine control software for implanters including the areas of Facilities monitoring and interlocking, Gas Controls, Vacuum Control, and Ion Beam Generation and tuning.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop production quality instrumentation and machine control SW applications
  • Follow defined process for SW development cycle including project scoping, requirements generation, design, review, implementation and unit/integration testing
  • Interface with marketing and internal/external customers for requirement generation
  • Interface with mechanical, electrical, system and other software engineers for requirements and design definition
  • Provide SW Support for internal R&D prototype development and test
  • Work with Product Support to investigate and resolve field reported issues on released products
  • Work with Software Quality Group to test on both Implanter Hardware and simulator
  • Develop major and minor enhancements as well as bug fixes for new product development
  • Develop applications primarily in C/C++
  • Work both individually and as a member of cross functional teams
  • Proactively explore new technologies to improve machine control
Requirements:

  • Must have Strong C/C++ programming skills
  • Must have experience developing real-time multi-tasked control using a Real Time Operating System (RTOS) such as Windriver VxWorks OS
  • Experience in area of real-time machine control and instrumentation device interfaces (sensors, actuators, motors, encoders, IO systems) required
  • Solid experience with high speed real-time data acquisition, manipulation and transer
  • Strong cross-discipline system skills required
  • Solid mathematical skills and basic understanding of control theory as applied to motion and other physical systems
