Carbon
Software Architect
Redwood City

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.

    Reviews from current employees

    Flex time off / unlimited PTO allows me to spend less time focusing on what hours I'm working and more on making sure I am producing quality outputs in a way that works for me.
    Employees are encouraged to be engaged and form alliances - we have a People of Color, Womxn's & Pride ERG.
    There is a lot of emphasis placed on making sure our culture truly lives up to the brand promise. Also our company-wide communication forums, such as #CarbonTalks and Carbon Connect, help employees feel included and informed.
