As a Software Developer at DGS you will spend your day designing, coding, and testing software. Our projects are non- standard, highly customized, and will push you to new levels as a software developer. Most of our software is developed in C/C++ and runs on embedded systems with a Linux environment.

We are unique company working on the next generation of communications and sensors systems, which means that we constantly push the envelope of technology. We invest in our employees and ideas. We fund internal research and development ideas. Our work environment is casual attire (t-shirt/jeans), flexible hours, and unlimited snacks and coffee.



  • C/C++ development of new feature and functions that support critical customer goals
  • Applying concepts from newer data structures and computing architectures to support both synchronous and event driven processing of large amount of data in near real time.
  • Developing for real time operating systems and interesting embedded systems.
  • Applying understanding of software development process (design, code and test) to develop modular software platforms for embedded systems.
  • Software development is fun and fulfilling when good workflows, processes, and environments exist. We work hard to make sure our engineers have the following:
    • Reproducible builds to get you going faster with a given project.
    • Continuous integration and strong configuration management practices to validate assumptions made
