Software Architect

Carbon, Redwood City, CA

Stop prototyping. Start producing.

Duration: Full-Time

Working at the intersection of software, hardware, and molecular science, we are committed to delivering on the promise of 3D printing, enabling commercial customers to go beyond basic prototyping to manufacturing.  Our company is built on the idea that diverse fields of study must come together to solve intractable problems. We have grand ambitions to create technology that will influence industry around the world. 

We are looking for a Software Architect that will join a small but incredibly strong team of Software Engineers that work across the stack in C++, Python, Typescript and Ruby. As a Software Architect, you will collaborate with other SWEs, PMs, functional leaders, and other teams in our multidisciplinary organization to define the software technology direction from technology selection and service design to software best practices and culture.

You will be a mentor for both junior and senior engineers and lead by example in both communication and code, contributing to any specific area of the stack as needed. You will drive key cross functional efforts to not only achieve technical success, but ultimately successful business outcomes. You will be joining a diverse team with a vibrant culture, where team success is as important as celebrating individual contributions.

  • 15+ years of hands-on programming experience in C++ production code
  • Experience building, deploying and performance tuning system level software
  • Experience building and scaling distributed cloud service architectures
  • Ability to be independent, give input, and work in a culture that celebrates autonomy
  • Experience with embedded software is a bonus
  • BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science or related technical discipline, or equivalent practical experience
You do not need to match every listed expectation to apply for this position. Here at Carbon, we know that diverse perspectives foster the innovation we need to be successful, and we are committed to building a team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills.

About Carbon

About Carbon WHO WE ARE Carbon works at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Our vision is a future fabricated with light, where traceable, final-quality parts are produced at scale with CLIP technology. CLIP — Continuous Liquid Interface Production — makes this vision possible by combining engineering­-grade materials with exceptional resolution and surface finish. HARNESSING LIGHT AND OXYGEN TO PRODUCE OBJECTS FROM A POOL OF RESIN, CLIP is a photochemical process that eliminates the shortcomings of conventional 3D printing by harnessing light and oxygen to rapidly produce objects from a pool of resin. From everyday products like tennis shoes and electronics, to industrial components, to highly customizable medical devices, CLIP makes it possible for creators to design the parts and products of the future.
