Software Engineer, Experiments


NeuroGEARS is a technology company bridging Neuroscience, Games, Interaction, and Robotics. We engage with top research and academic institutions worldwide to reimagine research on the neural basis of behavior using open-source tools.

Our goal is to make technology that is accessible, understandable and modifiable. We want scientists to be able to take apart their instruments, understand what they are measuring and how, and be able to quickly recombine and repurpose their technical toolkit to answer the questions they really want to ask, while trusting the quality of their data.

NeuroGEARS employs the core team behind the visual reactive programming language Bonsai, which now powers thousands of experiments around the world. Bonsai is at the centre of a vibrant and growing ecosystem of hardware and software projects in Neuroscience, including Open-Ephys, DeepLabCut, Miniscope, Harp, and Neurophotometrics.

About the Role

Join a unique team of engineers working to reshape how we look at brains moving in naturalistic spaces. We are looking for a hands-on software engineer to help us design and maintain various components of the Bonsai reactive programming language. You will help us expand and support interoperability of Bonsai with a broad range of scientific instruments and open-source software. You will also work with us to design and implement bespoke applications using Bonsai for cutting edge neuroscience experiments combining neurophysiology, computer vision, virtual reality, augmented reality, and real-time control of hardware. You will have the opportunity to work closely with neuroscientists, electrical and mechanical engineers and learn a great deal about the internals of Bonsai.
