How will you make an impact?
Be ready to join a company where you can truly make your mark. If you’re interested in doing highly unique, cutting-edge and challenging work, we want to hear from you.
As our new Software Developer, you will play a key role in the creation of advanced robotic technology and automation platforms for use in laboratories around the world.

Ideally, you’ll also be proficient with Java, RESTful Web APIs, ASP.NET, C++, WPF, TCP/IP, SOAP, WCF, ActiveX, Serial Communication and Unit Testing.
We are bringing the cloud to our software platform, so cloud experience such as Amazon AWS or Azure would be a great asset. Mobile development skills such as Xamarin, iOS, Android as well as IoT skills would also be valuable.
We want someone who is a great team player, with excellent communications skills – we’re a small, tight-knit team that is deeply passionate about the work we do, so your attitude and impact on our work culture are as important to us as your technical skills. You’ll also have lots of freedom in your work, so you should be comfortable making good decisions and owning your role and your responsibilities.

Working with Us:
This will be a full-time position working out of our Burlington office from Monday to Friday. The software development group typically works standard office hours, but each individual has the option to explore work schedules that work best for them and the team. You’ll make a great salary from the get go and Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a comprehensive benefits and vacation package.
The best part of working with us is the culture. While Thermo Fisher has the structure, support, and market presence of a big corporation, we work hard to maintain the feel of a small company. This provides us freedom to operate in an agile and responsive manner and stay focused on doing the right thing for our customers and our business. The small company feel extends to how we work together as well and includes company BBQs, stopping by at the ice cream truck we called up to visit, and going on the occasional trip to Canada’s Wonderland. Most important though, we think, is the enjoyment of working with an engaged group of people towards a common purpose.
If this kind of environment sounds attractive, this may be just be the place for you!
