Systems Engineer / Software Product Owner
Kirkland, Washington - Full Time

If you are looking for a job that utilizes your mechanical engineering and software experience to better the lives of millions, this is the place for you. You will join a global team to define and develop the next-generation software that drives Mitutoyo’s dimensional measurement machines, such as coordinate measurement machines (CMMs). Manufacturers use these machines to verify that almost everything - from microchips to aircraft engines - is made to specification. We are a highly stable company that values team members and work-life balance. Join our team and together we can make a difference!


As a systems engineer and a product owner at Mitutoyo Research & Development America, Inc. (MRDA), you will work on defining software products used to control complex measurement machines and to report measurement results. You will work with our teams and stakeholders to analyze past products and market needs, and use that knowledge to define the details of the software product, including functions, UX/UI, and verification.  

You will use your excellent sense of what elements make a general software application great from a user’s perspective. Additionally, you will need to be a strong communicator who can take ideas and thoughts and turn them into visible representations, such as mockups and diagrams. Good basic math is also required and knowledge about dimensional metrology is helpful. It is a strong plus if you have knowledge about software tools that report information, such as tables, charts, and/or graphs.


Your work here will help make a positive impact on society, and you’ll enjoy working in our casual and friendly environment with flexible hours and hybrid work model, and using our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. We are highly stable and we’ll support your career development with training opportunities and our cultural focus on individual growth.
