The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network has an outstanding opportunity for a
Software Engineer to support our real-time seismic monitoring projects.

PNSN monitors earthquakes in the states of Washington and Oregon for public
safety and scientific research. We operate about 450 remote seismic
stations throughout the region. Data from these remote sites are
transmitted to the UW continuously in real time to our processing and
alerting center at the UW Seattle. The data are processed through several
applications to provide a series of products, including real-time warnings
of imminent shaking (called ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning),
earthquake locations and sizes, distribution of strong shaking, and raw
data archived for scientific and engineering studies. The Software
Engineer position is critical for further development and testing of our
real-time processing and analysis codes, as well as programs to improve
system health monitoring.

The successful applicant will work within a small team of scientists,
software engineers, and computer specialists at PNSN and with ShakeAlert
developers at partner institutions: CalTech, UC Berkeley, and the USGS. An
exciting challenge for the Software Engineer is to work within a real-time
and continuous production framework.

The position will be open until filled, however, we expect to start
reviewing applications on October 14, 2019.
