Liquid Instruments is an emerging startup company making a new breed of test & measurement equipment that enables scientists, engineers and students to acquire data, generate signals and control their experiments. Liquid Instruments was founded by a team of scientists that worked together on high-speed digital signal processing at the Australian National Univeristy and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and built ultra-sensitive instrumentation for measuring gravitational waves. We’ve used the technology to create our first product, Moku:Lab, that integrates 12 instruments including an oscilloscope, spectrum analyser, waveform generator, etc. into a single device using an FPGA-based software-reconfigurable platform.

We are looking an experienced software engineer to:

  • Create and take ownership of a visually rich Windows application to control our expanding hardware platform.
    • Soft real-time control of physical hardware over a network.
    • Rich visual representation of complex physical systems and datasets.
    • Interface to our existing C++ business logic.
  • Establish our Windows development team and set up best-practice processes.
    • Choose a technology stack for the application (such as UWP, Win32, WinRT, Windows UI or Qt).
    • Establish build, continuous integration and documentation systems.
    • Participate in hiring and supervision of junior developers.

Successful applicants will:

  • Be comfortable reading modern C++.
  • Have a demonstrated ability to architect complex software.
  • Work effectively within a team and utilise collaborative tools.
  • Have produced high-quality, native user interfaces.

Desirable Experience:

  • C++/C#
  • Win32/WinRT/UWP
  • Graphic/UI design
  • DirectX/OpenGL
  • Network programming
  • Git/JIRA/Confluence
