Senior C++ Software Engineer

We are looking for a Senior C++ Software Engineer to join our team! As a Senior C++ Software Engineer, you will help lead the development of advanced, high-performance systems ready to run close to the metal. You will adapt to a continually evolving set of challenges while leveraging your experience and knowledge to advance our team. We need an engaged engineer, passionate about technology. The right candidate is ready to step in and grow themselves and lead. We are looking for a well-rounded software engineer, well-versed in solid design principles, and ready to hit the ground running designing and implementing advanced software.

It takes all types to make Hellebore great. If you are someone who enjoys creating innovative ways to reach ambitious goals, who is open to and energized by receiving honest feedback and is comfortable in a start-up environment: we should talk.


  • Aren’t a punch-the-clock coder — technology has always been pervasive in your life, from building drones to contributing to open source sites
  • Possess high standards and strive to deliver beautiful solutions
  • Insist on seeing your projects through from start to finish
  • Stay sharp in your craft by keeping on top of new tools and staying abreast of what’s going on in your field
  • Are open-minded, appreciate direct feedback, and revel in intellectually rigorous environments


  • Having whole-problem responsibility — we don’t feed engineers features and bugs to fulfill
  • Working in small teams — we emphasize agile, mission-driven work; not monolithic waterfall projects
  • Collaborating with experts in their fields, becoming one of a handful of the world’s sharpest and most engaged minds


  • Working with some seriously advanced tech
  • Writing code (C, C++, C++17, Python, Rust, Java, etc.)
  • Designing and implementing test suites
  • Consulting on software design, architecture development, and implementation paradigms
  • Working with a diverse and talented team on next-generation problems
  • Traveling to support our client’s mission (up to 25%)


  • U.S. Citizen with an active security clearance (i.e. Secret, Top Secret, SCI)
  • A degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or another related technical field
  • Strong Experience with C++
  • Demonstrated project ownership, not just participation
  • The ability to write an entire program using nothing but GOTO statements


It’s important to us that you have what you need to do your job best. We know that’s more than just loving what you do. At Hellebore, we offer industry-leading salaries and a full benefits package, including a profit-sharing 401k, comprehensive insurance, and 10 Federal holidays. In addition, we have a generous Paid-Paid Vacation policy: You’ll get 20 days of paid time off, and we’ll give you $5,000 a year to spend on vacation-related expenses.
