Senior Software Developer Job at Sorting Robotics, Van Nuys, CA

  • Sorting Robotics
  • Van Nuys, CA

Job Description


Sorting Robotics is a fast-growing company that specializes in automating the cannabis industry.

We have a talented and self-motivated team of mechanical, electrical, and software developers focused on creating the best machines possible.

We seek an experienced Software Developer to join our team and help us take our technology to the next level!


  • Design, develop, and implement software to control machines developed by Sorting Robotics.
  • Work closely with mechanical and electrical engineers and guide design decisions based on what software can effectively accomplish.
  • Work closely with customer success and sales staff to translate customer and company needs into software solutions.
  • Train entry/mid-level software developers in the development lifecycle of the product lines you're working on.
  • Work with engineers and customer success staff to remote and debug logs in the machine and understand customer problems.
  • This is an on-site position. You're expected to work on-site with the other team members five days a week. We are based in Los Angeles.

Sometimes, nothing will work, and you'll need to conduct experiments until the problem's root cause (hardware or software-related) is fully understood.

Before writing any code, you must deeply understand complex topics and communicate proposed solutions to a highly technical team. Ideally, you write the minimum number of lines that solve the problem ("spin lock? Why not? It solves this problem" - "I'll just use a JSON file for now as a database so anyone can easily modify it").

Your work will be focused more on clear communication and business impact than on lines of code you can write or cool tech you can use - although there is space to experiment with cool new tech if you can justify it -

Preferred Qualifications

  • Familiarity with Python
  • Familiarity with Git
  • Familiarity with CI/CD pipelines, AWS services
  • Familiarity with web standards, RESTful APIs, OAuth

You will work on different parts of the stack at various times. We expect you to understand where everything goes and why, and we expect you to add to the stack to make the development process more robust.

  • Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related fields.
  • Experience with Linux (systemd, journalctl, network manager, permissions).
  • Experience working with Hardware.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Strong communication and collaboration skills.
  • (125k - 175k)/year base salary.
  • (0.25% - 0.35%) Stock Options.
  • Comprehensive health, vision, and dental insurance plans.
  • Lunch provided daily.
  • Work with NASA-JPL level engineers.
