As a member of drchrono's engineering team, we want you to bring experience building real products in the real world from the ground up. Your teammates should see you as a programming expert and go to you with their toughest problems. You should be comfortable jumping in the deep end and learning new skills.

drchrono is looking for a software engineer to head up development of our internal and external APIs, and act as liaison to the development community at large.
