Who: Acroname, Inc.
What: awesome software for awesome products
When: immediate and permanent
Why: because you're awesome, we're awesome and together our products will be awesome
Where: Boulder, CO (Local candidates strongly preferred; relocation not paid)
How: Send your resume to


While we take our products and customer needs seriously, we are a small and uniquely Boulder business. All of our coworkers have lives outside of work, and we pride ourselves on not taking things too seriously. We work hard; there are serious crunch times.

As a software engineer at Acroname, you'll join a small, quick moving team building tools based on decades of experience; think of us as a really old start-up without all the venture capital noise. You get freedom to move things where you think they should go, while not having to start from nothing. Your weekly work will include software projects such as web applications, devOps deployments, adding features to embedded firmware, extending and documenting our protocols, maintaining or extending operational tools, writing GUI applications to demo products to our customers, holding our customer's hands in integrating our products into their systems, optimizing our production test software, consulting on new product hardware designs, working with the team to architect new product embedded firmware, improving our VM compiler, arguing over vi vs emacs vs vim vs Xcode. Or just waiting for Xcode to restart since it just crashed, again.

Acroname is an Equal Opportunity Employer that is committed to inclusion and diversity. We also take affirmative action to offer employment and advancement opportunities to all applicants, including minorities, women, orientations, religions, and individuals with disabilities.
