The Control & Estimation Team that develops MATLAB toolboxes such as control system, Simulink control design, system identification, MPC, etc., has two openings for software developers: 
Job Title: PID Control Tools Developer
Location: Natick MA
% Travel: None to Minimal

Job Summary
We are looking for a versatile, enthusiastic engineer capable of multi-tasking to join the Control & Estimation Tools team. You will develop software tools to facilitate the design of PID controllers for industrial automation and process control applications. You will need skills that cross traditional domain boundaries in areas such as PID controller design, design optimization, and graphical user interface design.

* You will design and develop new software tools to help our customers develop and implement PID controllers for their applications. 
* You will contribute to all aspects of the product development process from writing functional specifications to designing software architecture to implementing software features. 
* You will collaborate with other teams such as Quality Engineering, Documentation, and Usability. 
* You will occasionally interact with customers and build application examples that focus on control system design. 

Ph.D., or M.Sc. with at least 3 years of industry experience, in an engineering field with a focus on industrial automation, process optimization, and applied control system design. 

A combination of some of the following skills is also desired:
* Expertise in the practical aspects of PID controller design (auto-tuning, robustness, anti-windup, bumpless transfer). 
* Industry experience with process modeling, design of experiments (DOE), and design optimization. 
* Experience in designing controllers and developing tools for industrial automation and process control applications. 
* Java Swing and GUI development experience. 
* Experience with object-oriented design and programming. 
* Knowledge of MATLAB and Simulink. 
* Knowledge of optimization and statistical analysis techniques.
