A bit about us:

We are a startup focused on lidar sensors for autonomous systems. We are building a culture of high performance that we think can change the world for the better. We would like to add a motivated, fast-paced Firmware/Software Development leader with a diverse and solid background to our on-site team in Hampton, Virginia.

Why join us?

The primary purpose of this position is to serve as a Senior Flight Software/Embedded Firmware Engineer to provide design and development support for our second generation lidar to support space and defense markets. The role will include lab demonstrations, field tests, and prototypes to be supplied to potential customers for testing in their systems.

The work requires real time and offline algorithm adaption and coding of complex algorithms, low level driver development and implementation, software and firmware design, integrated opto-electronic control and housekeeping management, inter-module communication protocol, high speed electronics and software testing and debugging, high reliability techniques, signal processing, and in-situ, full system testing of instrumentation systems and navigation algorithms. Ability to collaborate with Systems Engineering and hardware builds to define function allocation among software and hardware resources is a must. These systems will be used for detecting, recording, measuring, or controlling physical conditions, phenomena, and environments encountered in defense and aerospace development programs.

Mentors junior engineers related to the study, development, and test of hardware, data system components, or equipment. Oversees the day-to-day development activities of small design and development teams in support of the project manager's work plan.
