Perth, Western Australia
Work Type: Full Time

We are a technology company at the forefront of high-performance computing (HPC) with a strong foundation in applied physics. Our innovative hardware and software solutions for the global technology and resource sectors enable our clients to leverage large and complex data sets.

We’re looking for software engineers to help realise our next generation of scientific processing applications, excited by the prospect of learning new domain knowledge, tools and techniques, and eager to extend these into innovative ideas of their own.

As a Software Engineer at DUG Technology, you’ll work within a world-class team of energetic problem solvers on ambitious software challenges. Guided by our agile continuous integration process you’ll develop advanced features for a variety of scientific products, including DUG Insight, our flagship product. You’ll show initiative by becoming proficient in the languages and technologies used in your projects, as well as the basic domain knowledge required to solve challenging software problems for your users. You’ll employ your design smarts on new user interfaces, APIs, high performance computing and cluster data challenges. When submitting your application, you’ll have shown you have an eye for detail by including ‘Shibboleth’ in your cover letter.

Your tasks:

  • High- and detailed-level design of scientific processing software
  • Implementation, testing, optimisation and maintenance of software written in the most appropriate language to solve each problem (including Java, C/C++ and Python)
  • Inspection and maintenance of software written by other members of the team
  • Becoming conversant in the problem domains of new and existing products
  • Acting as 3rd-level technical support, for otherwise-unresolvable customer issues
  • Providing and receiving regular, constructive feedback to and from your peers
  • Collaborating on priority and scheduling for rapid product iterations
  • Acting as mentor for an exceptional intern or junior developer


  • Demonstrable expert-level skills as a software developer in C, C++, and/or Java
  • Excellent written and spoken business and technical English, suitable for working directly with clients
  • Impeccable professional references

A history of work in one or more of our major focus areas, such as 3D visualisation, data management and I/O, human/computer interaction, highly-parallel computing, or numerical processing, will be well regarded.

We offer:

  • A position in one of the most exciting high-tech companies in Australia
  • An international team with some of the best software engineers from all over the world
  • A low overhead, flat management structure designed to minimise bureaucracy so you can focus on what you’re great at
  • The flexibility to manage your own working times and a true work-life balance
  • Centrally located in Australia’s sunniest capital city, modern offices with end-of-trip facilities, views over Kings Park and nearby food options
  • Opportunity to participate in organised social events with like-minded colleagues
