Lead Software Engineer - Commodore

At Circuit Mind we are completely automating the design of electronic circuit boards. Just as the introduction of software compilers and interpreters enabled an explosion in software application development, our intelligent software will power complex hardware design and development in the future.

Electronic circuit boards are at the core of current and future inventions, from augmented reality to autonomous vehicles. Yet today, designing an electronic circuit board is an extremely manual, long and inefficient process. At Circuit Mind we are on a mission to solve this problem, shaping the future of hardware technology.

We are building a novel software system that takes in high-level requirements and creates optimized circuit board designs in seconds. We are tackling hard problems that no one has ever solved before, pushing beyond what is currently thought to be possible.

A fundamental piece towards our mission is a machine-readable database of electronic components. For this reason we are creating Commodore: a software that allows librarians to rapidly and reliably populate the database of electronic components.

We are looking for humble perpetual learners who are driven and able to think critically to play a major role in shaping Circuit Mind from the beginning.
