Software Developer - 3D Analysis

Overview

Do you love 3D and want to develop tools that make a difference in everyday lives? Use your experience in 2D/3D programming to expand the 3D analytic capabilities of Esri ArcGIS platform. In this role you will design and develop world-class software products supporting the needs of urban planners, architects, engineers, and others working with geographic information.      
 
We are actively looking for developers with a passion for programming to join us in creating the world’s best geospatial data analysis platform. As a platform that serves millions of users and domains, our software needs to be modular, reusable, and well crafted. We iterate rapidly, constantly learning from feedback, metrics, and the mission goals of our community.
 
Strong math skills and the ability to design and implement data structures leveraging non-trivial algorithms are among the traits we are looking for, along with enthusiasm for software development and problem solving. 
 
Responsibilities: 
  • Build C++ software components that follow industry-standard design patterns, development methodologies, and deployment models
  • Work closely with product engineers to implement requirements and create application architectures and API to meet product goals
  • Create solutions for spatial data access and management of large datasets that are stored in a spatial database or file system
  • Design and develop stable software that includes automated test validation
  • Develop reusable components and libraries for use internally and as open source
  • Work within agile processes for short cycle, fast-paced delivery
  • Take on complex goals that push the boundary of the possible
  • Solve and articulate complex problems through application design, development, and exemplary user experiences

Requirements

  • 2+ years of experience working with C++ (STL, C++ 11, Boost) 
  • Experience with 3D graphics APIs such as WebGL, OpenGL ES, OpenGL, or DirectX
  • Understanding of algorithms, data structures, and design patterns
  • Strong math skills and expertise in computational geometry, topology, and data modeling for terrain and surface analysis
  • Experience working with large datasets of vector and terrain/lidar data as well as data structures for storing, manipulating, and visualizing 3D data
  • Experience with workflow computing, for example UI programming, scripting, and test authoring
  • Knowledge of Agile development methodologies and test-driven development processes
  • Prior experience with the development and release of commercial software
  • Excellent problem-solving, design, development, and debugging skills
  • Bachelor’s, master’s, or Ph.D. in computer science, engineering, mathematics, GIS, or related field, depending on position level (master’s or Ph.D. preferred)
Recommended Qualifications: 
  • Knowledge of parallel, multi-core, and distributed programming techniques including heterogeneous multi-core environments (GPUs + CPUs)
  • Experience building file-based solutions and/or with databases and data access technologies
  • Experience with application scripting languages (e.g., Python, JavaScript) and web protocols and formats such as REST and JSON
  • Experience developing software that runs in a cloud
  • Familiarity with Esri ArcGIS or other web mapping technologies
