  • Overview

    Exciting opportunity to work on significantly advancing and modernizing the software ecosystem of open-source static-analysis tools!  The modernization effort will address various aspects of static analysis tools, ranging from adding new capabilities to improving user experience.


    It's not just about our own code, it's about taking other people's software apart and showing them what makes it tick.


    Under guidance of a principal investigator (PI), a software engineer on a research project will implement innovative prototypes to explore new approaches to problems in software engineering. A research-oriented software engineer is expected to:

    • Study and implement approaches drawn from academic literature or in-house design
    • Evaluate the resulting prototype implementation to test its value in addressing the research goals
    • Report results to the PI and respond by adapting the prototype to better address research goals
    • Contribute to presentations and written reports that keep research sponsors up to date on project progress
    • Prepare prototypes for demonstrations and evaluations by research sponsors. Respond to any last-minute complications to ensure a smooth and successful evaluation



    • BS in computer science or equivalent
    • Three (3) years or more of industry experience with a minimum of one year in machine learning
    • Experience with applying machine learning techniques such as artificial neural networks, support vector machines, and cluster analysis
    • Experience with implementing robust software using open source machine learning frameworks
    • Ability to read advanced machine learning publications, and to judge and implement the key ideas
    • Advanced software application development skills in C/C++ and Python


    • MS or PhD in computer science. 
    • Experience with Bayesian or other machine learning, for example one or more of the following; TensorFlow, Support Vector Machines, Word2Vec, SciPy
    • Knowledge of additional languages, such as Java, C#, or Javascript
    • Compiler design or static analysis
