Software Engineer III - Business Systems



At CNC Software, Inc., our mission is to create software and services that solve the world’s manufacturing challenges. Our software, Mastercam, developed and supported by our talented team, is the most widely used CAM software in the world. Headquartered in Tolland, CT, we are a culture that embraces remote work, with over forty percent of our team working from their home office in United States as well as in offices in Switzerland and China. As the industry leader, we strive to innovate, and we partner with our resellers and customers to make the impossible, well, possible.


As a privately held, family-owned business, our culture is shaped by our concern and care for each other and our community. Our work environment reflects this care, with exceptional benefits and services you would expect of an industry leader [on-site fitness center, walking paths, employee gardens, bicycle shop, kitchen facilities] which are supported by geothermal heating/cooling and solar arrays which power the majority of our utility consumption. As a Greater Hartford Top Workplace, our focus has always been on creating a workplace that embodies the family-friendly values we hold, and which, well, doesn’t feel like “work”, but more like a place that you want to be. If you have a passion for your work, an inquisitive nature, and a pride in exceeding the expectations others have set for you – then CNC may just be the place you have been looking for.


Position Overview:


The Software Engineer III is a senior position responsible for building a wide range of web-based line-of-business applications.  This position is a full lifecycle development opportunity, enabling the employee to participate in every step of the process, from system design to deployment.  This job is a full-stack position with an emphasis on back-end work.  You don’t have to be a front-end expert. We keep our UIs simple.


About our Department:


The Business Systems department is responsible for various operational business applications written mostly in C#, ASP.NET, and JavaScript (AngularJs/Vue) backed by an MSSQL (Entity Framework) database.  We have an automated CI/CD pipeline that deploys everything to Azure with a single click. 


You’ll never get bored here as there is always something new to work on.  At the same time, there is always something old to maintain.  Part of your job will require modifying ancient VB.NET and logic in stored procedures.  If that’s not for you, that is ok.  We believe in doing things right the first time, and it’s no different in our recruiting efforts.  Our position requires a person who appreciates the value of legacy code as we aren’t a startup anymore. In fact, we may have some code that is older than your car! 


At CNC, we celebrate the simple solution and the maintainable system.  Our team has an open mind, but we have a healthy skepticism for new, unvetted technology.  To keep code quality high, we user linters, code quality standards like SOLID and DDD, perform unit/integration/e2e testing, and pull-requests. We don’t believe in death marches, emails won’t flood your inbox during the weekend, and we love it when everybody shuts down their laptop to enjoy their personal passions after they’ve put in a good day's work.


Our Agile processes are mature. We try and keep unplanned work to an absolute minimum.  Yes, we have meetings, but we try and keep them as short as possible.  We optimize around giving developers as much focused time to code as possible.


Our applications are a lot of data-in/data-out web grids and forms.  You won’t need to reverse a linked list or worry about the N-notation of an algorithm, implementing complicated business rules is challenging enough. 


Essential Duties & Responsibilities:



  • Be a pro-active, team player who thrives working within a team of developers and testers to build the highest quality application or solution.

  • Proven experience building new applications from the ground up, working closely with company stakeholders. Most of our applications are web applications, but we have some jobs and Azure functions as well.

  • Apply modern development techniques to create fault-tolerant, scalable, maintainable and automated solutions as well as write unit and integration tests for new and existing code to ensure compatibility and stability.

  • Participate in a well-defined, flexible SCRUM process, and pro-actively contribute to the estimation and planning process, demonstrating your analyzing and planning skills.

  • Keep your skills up to date and learn new technologies with time exploration and discovery time baked into every sprint cycle.

  • Work with our product owner to understand the effort required to modify our systems and participate in prototyping or technical research projects.

  • Mentor and assist your other teammates. Not everybody knows everything, and as a tenured developer, you will be expected to share your expertise or technological passion.


Minimum Requirements & Qualifications:



  • BA Degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related discipline or equivalent experience.

  • 6-9 years of experience with writing web applications with ASP.NET, C#, and JavaScript.

  • Vue or AngularJs experience would be great, but if you’ve worked with one JavaScript UI framework, then you won’t have any problems getting up to speed.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, as well as the ability to multi-task and work within the team. We are professionals through and through, but everything is easier when we are all committed to meeting deadlines and quality standards.

  • We expect developers at this level to be able to take a project from start to finish and have proven experience writing an application from scratch and deploying it to users.

  • Given your experience, you will be able to problem-solve and learn/adapt quickly to our agile/scrum environment.
