R&D Software Developer

Protocase is currently seeking two tenacious, organized Software Developers to join its Research & Development team in Sydney (Cape Breton), Nova Scotia. This is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are driven by the underlying goal of making software that the end user actually wants to use.

Protocase’s Research & Development (R&D) is a busy department within the company, serving many different internal teams with software development and project engineering on a variety of systems and programs. We are a unique ultra-lean manufacturer that provides the upper echelon of scientists and engineers all over the world with rapid custom manufacturing in 2-3 days. Our team of developers is tasked with continually improving and maintaining internal and external software that are crucial to our ongoing productivity, efficiency and growth.

Protocase is proud to offer its customers Protocase Designer, free enclosure-design software that makes it as easy as possible to design, price and order custom enclosures, parts and panels.

In addition to Protocase Designer, our talented team of developers maintains several pieces of business software in Java (along with some work on application add-ons in C#) that are essential to Protocase’s day-to-day operations and ongoing growth.


You are tenacious when it comes to goals and completing projects. You love writing software, and you love seeing what you create come to life, function, and make users’ lives better. You understand with deep clarity that if the end user isn’t actually using the software, then your work isn’t done.

Your duties will include:

Developing new features and improving current features for our CAD software or internal business software

Working with internal stakeholders to solve complex problems

Ensuring our software applications are highly testable, maintainable, and scalable

In order to succeed in this role, you must be a lifelong learner who cares deeply enough about your professional excellence and pushes yourself to learn things.


Essential Skills:

Experience in Java

Technical degree or diploma in Software Development (or related field), or 2+ years’ experience

Strong communication skills (verbal and written)

You have a goal-oriented personality and love to make things work!

Attention to detail

Excellent time-management skills

Strong analytic skills and problem solving

Enjoy working in a team environment

Ability to work independently

Experience working with legacy software a plus

CAD experience, mathematical ability, and/or database experience would also be considered assets, but are not required. . . .
