TerraPower is a nuclear technology company based in Bellevue, Washington. At its core, the company is working to raise living standards globally through a more affordable, secure and environmentally friendly form of nuclear energy along with innovations in medical isotopes to improve human health. In 2006, TerraPower originated with Bill Gates and a group of like-minded visionaries who evaluated the fundamental challenges to raising living standards around the world. They recognized energy access was crucial to the health and economic well-being of communities and decided that the private sector needed to take action and create energy sources that would advance global energy deployment. TerraPower’s mission is to be a world leader in new nuclear technologies, while developing innovators and future leaders in the nuclear field. As a result, the company’s activities in the fields of nuclear energy and related sciences are yielding significant innovations in the safety and economics of nuclear power, hybrid energy and medical applications – all for significant human health benefits.

Senior Software Developer

TerraPower is seeking to hire a highly skilled full stack developer to help build and maintain of our primary data management application, called Atom. This tool is a key part of our plan to improve the world’s ability to deliver data-heavy nuclear power construction projects on time and budget. It contains a nuclear reactor project-specific data model linking the plant safety functions, requirements, scientific analyses, documentation, tests, and more. It acts as a single source of truth across the project to help coordinate design and construction efforts. It facilitates workflows that satisfy project procedures. This role will work closely with engineering management, QA, and the internal user base to continue to build and refine the tool’s capabilities, improve the quality pedigree, monitor and improve performance as needed, and to fix bugs as they are identified. 

The tool is a Python/Django/DRF backend running on Linux servers with a JavaScript/Vue3/Quasar frontend SPA user interface. The developer team is relatively small: only ~5 people.
