Are you a problem solver, explorer, and knowledge seeker – always asking, “What if?”


If so, you may be the new team member we’re looking for. Because at SAS, your curiosity matters – whether you’re developing algorithms, creating customer experiences, or answering critical questions. Curiosity is our code, and the opportunities here are endless.


What we do:

JMP is an independent division of SAS providing interactive, graphical, statistical discovery software to engineers and scientists. JMP runs on the desktop and drives real-world improvements in product quality, manufacturing efficiency, drug development, and more.

We are looking for a Software Developer to make JMP even better. This position involves both expanding and maintaining a large C++ application. JMP runs on Mac and Windows and ships new versions on a regular release cycle. You will be working within a small team focused on the display and scripting infrastructure that enables rich statistical analyses and dynamic visualizations. Eventually, you will be taking responsibility for components of the product and often working independently.


What we’re looking for:

  • Demonstrated C++ expertise (including standard libraries and modern C++)
  • Software engineering expertise (design, refactoring, debugging)
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Strong communication skills (wiki editing, presentations)
  • You’re curious, passionate, authentic, and accountable. These are our values and influence everything we do.

The Nice to Haves:

  • Experience with JMP or similar products
  • Experience with computer graphics
  • Experience with statistical analysis and data visualization
  • Math expertise (geometry, linear algebra)
  • Online contributions (Stack Overflow, GitHub, blogs, twitter)

Other knowledge, skills, and abilities:

  • Superior analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
  • Excellent verbal, written communication skills.
  • Ability to effectively communicate with peers and management.
  • Demonstrated ability to manage time across multiple projects.

SAS looks not only for the right skills, but also a fit to our core values. We seek colleagues who will contribute to the unique values that makes SAS such a great place to work. We look for the total candidate: technical skills, values fit, relationship skills, problem solvers, good communicators and, of course, innovators. Candidates must be ready to make an impact, if you have the skills required we would love to hear from you!



  • We love living the #SASlife and believe that happy, healthy people have a passion for life, and bring that energy to work. No matter what your specialty or where you are in the world, your unique contributions will make a difference. 
  • Our multi-dimensional culture blends our different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Here, it isn’t about fitting into our culture, it’s about adding to it - and we can’t wait to see what you’ll bring.
