Desperately Seeking Summer Intern
Hot Startup Needs Sharp Programmer

Aperio Technologies, located in Vista, CA, is looking for a student who’d like to work as a summer intern, programming .NET applications in C#.

Aperio provides systems for virtual microscopy.   We make instruments which scan microscope slides at high resolution (100,000dpi) and build software to manage, display, and analyze the resulting [very large] digital images.   Please see our website at for more information.

Desired qualifications:

  • Smart!
  • Experience with VS.NET and C#
  • GUI experience helpful
  • TCP/IP network experience helpful
  • Reasonable at foosball

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to develop and enhance the console software which provides the operator interface for our ScanScope instruments.   The console software communicates with the instruments using TCP/IP sockets.   You would join a small team of crack coders building cool systems which make cancer researchers and clinical Pathologists more accurate and efficient.  

If you are interested please send an email with your qualifications and experience to, or call (760) 539-1107.
