Stellar Science is a growing Albuquerque-based scientific software development company seeking talented software developers to create and extend exciting scientific and engineering analysis applications. We maintain high standards in all our software development efforts, utilizing modern development practices including continuous integration, test-driven development, and code reviews in order to develop high quality, maintainable, and reusable code. By employing a lightweight development process, we remain highly productive and responsive to changing customer needs.

Applicants may range from recent college graduates to experienced software engineers; the main requirements are that candidates be top-notch, responsible, self-motivated, honest, able to work well independently or in small teams, and be able to rapidly learn new languages, tools, and techniques as needed to meet mission requirements.

A representative sample of your code may be requested early in the evaluation process, e.g. something you've written for work, for a class, or for fun. It need not compile, but should be long enough to help evaluate your programming and software engineering skills.

Stellar Science is a forward-thinking business that allows its developers and scientists to work at home on occasion when consistent with job requirements. Standard benefits include ten paid federal holidays (which may be floated as desired), three weeks vacation, a generous fully employer-funded SEP IRA, and fully employer-funded health insurance, as well as dental, disability, and life insurance.
