Women Impact Tech

Software Engineer, Robotics, Test Systems

    Fremont, CA

About the Role:

Neuralink is developing ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers. We are building a team of multidisciplinary experts passionate about making a world-changing impact.

As a Software Engineer working on our robot test systems, you’ll be on the ground floor of building a comprehensive pure software, simulation, and hardware in the loop test system for our high precision surgical robot.  This will involve working with hardware engineers to design and deploy new test hardware, and setting up tools for both yourself and other engineers on the team to write and deploy tests at all levels.  We have nascent test infrastructure, but are looking to build a team that will turn it into a full fledged system that brings our iteration time down, decreases our manual testing load, and increases our surgical robot’s reliability even as we scale to many more surgeries.  You’ll be joining this team in its formative moments.

About you:

  • You find large challenges exciting and enjoy discovering and defining problems as much as solving them.
  • You deliver. You may enjoy thoughtful conversations about problems and perfecting designs, but in the end, you know that what matters is delivering a manufacturable solution that works every time.
  • You are a cross-disciplinary team member. You are excited to work with and learn from software, mechanical, electrical, materials, biological engineers, and neuroscientists. You are comfortable communicating across teams.
  • Resourceful, flexible and adaptable; no task is too big or too small.

Key qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in software engineering, or equivalent in experience and ability.
  • 4+ years of software engineering experience (collegiate engineering clubs like formula SAE, Baja, coding competitions, etc included).
  • 2+ year of industry software engineering experience.
  • Strong understanding of engineering first principles.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience designing simulation and hardware in the loop test systems.
  • Experience interfacing with sensors, motors, etc.

What we offer:

  • An opportunity to change the world and work with some of the smartest and the most talented experts from different fields.
  • Growth potential. We rapidly advance team members who have an outsized impact.
  • Excellent medical, dental, and vision insurance through a PPO plan; parental leave.
  • Flexible time off + paid holidays.
  • 401(k) plan.
  • Commuter Benefits.
  • Meals provided.
