About Seurat

Seurat is transforming manufacturing for people and our planet by delivering a scalable additive manufacturing solution to fundamentally change how products are made. Seurat’s proprietary Area Printing process, developed at Lawrence Livermore National Labs (LLNL), allows metal components to be manufactured at price points and quality levels that compete directly with conventional manufacturing techniques, enabling the reshoring of supply chains and promoting the decarbonization of industry. Seurat has raised over $180M and is backed by leading venture partners like Capricorn, NVentures (NVIDIA), True Ventures, General Motors Ventures, Denso, Porsche SE, SIP global partners, Honda, Xerox Ventures/Myriad Venture Partners, Cubit Capital, Siemens Energy, and Maniv Mobility.

Seurat Technologies

Seurat stands as a vertically integrated Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology company, involved in every aspect from machine design and development to serving as a high-volume supplier of metal 3D printed components. Our innovative Area Printing technology employs a groundbreaking approach to laser beam manipulation. Through this method, we not only enhance build rate and resolution simultaneously. Area Printing produces significantly less carbon output than traditional metal forging and metal casting industries.

Control Systems Product Development

Join our dynamic Control Systems Product Development department at Seurat, where you can actively contribute to our transformation into a comprehensive high-volume metal additive contract manufacturing company. As a part of the Product Development software team, you'll be at the forefront of creating advanced control systems for our industrial pulsed-laser additive manufacturing equipment. Our team is responsible for advancing the development of high-speed pulsed-laser control subsystems, seamless inter-system communications, and sophisticated high-level automation sequences.

Principal Software Engineer

As the principal software engineer, you will act as technical lead to the equipment software controls engineering team (12+), and program complex motion control subsystems such as multi-axis motion controllers in deterministic real-time C++. The ideal candidate has architecture software development experience and proven track record of constructing scalable, robust, and maintainable software in a real-time C++ environment.

What You'll Achieve

  • Architect and implement hard real-time (C++) software operating Seurat’s novel high-speed, multi-laser, metal 3D additive Area Printer.
  • Provide technical leadership and guidance to a talented and growing team of software engineers.
  • Act as technical partner to the Director of Controls and collaborate on – strategic engineering planning, roadmap sequencing, and prioritizing technical investments.
  • Partner with Process Engineering, Program Management, and executive leadership to define project and strategy roadmap.

  • 7+ years’ of relevant experience.
  • Advanced C++ software development experience. Specifically, deterministic (hard) real-time C++ development experience.
  • Advanced object-oriented design and analysis (OOD and OOA) knowledge.
  • Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) experience.
  • Proven success developing junior and senior level software engineers.
  • Experience working cross-functionally with stakeholders to manage risks, make tradeoffs, and align on long-term plans.
  • Foster a psychologically safe environment where team members feel encouraged to share creative ideas and collaborate.
  • Strong commitment to well-defined, reusable, clean code.
  • Experience programming multi-axis motion controllers such as Galil, ACS, etc.(EtherCAT motion controller experience, huge+)

Nice To Have, Not Required

  • Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing experience.
  • Master’s degree in computer science, Mechanical, Electrical, or relevant technical degree.
  • PLC programming experience such as structured text, ladder logic, etc.
  • High-precision, micron-scale, motion control software development experience.
