We work in small teams to rapidly prototype and productize new ideas based on hands-on, in-the-weeds engineering. You'll be responsible for designing and implementing algorithms for the Processing Algorithms team to generate geolocation output from raw RF data collected in low-earth-orbit. You’ll be expected to become intimately familiar with algorithm details and the HE360 problem set, allowing you to build new DSP and geolocation applications across the spectrum of RF signals between 100 MHz and 15 GHz (or higher!). We support a broad range of software to accomplish our mission, especially favoring python for research, and using a mix of python and C++ for both batch processing within cloud deployments and real-time embedded platforms.

As the Senior DSP Engineer - Geolocation, your main responsibilities will be:
  • Provide experienced leadership for the research, design and implementation of DSP and geolocation algorithms targeting a variety of RF signals of interest
  • Understand and improve the full geolocation stack (RF collection, T/FDOA measurement generation, geolocation, and more) to help drive new research and innovations in geolocation output
  • Build proof-of-concept solutions for RF processing and geolocation; document and gather support for new ideas; and rapidly transition technology into production
  • Contribute to code performance measurement, optimization and re-implementation
  • Support and improve existing python and C++ software for RF processing and geolocation
  • Guide and mentor other individual contributors
Your skills and qualifications:
Essential education and experience:
  • B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or relevant field; or equivalent experience
  • 5+ years of professional experience
  • 3+ years of experience in geolocation and/or RF digital signal processing using python and C++
  • Experience building geolocation systems (TDOA/FDOA, angle of arrival, etc) with a strong understanding of the physics of state estimation
  • Strong understanding of RF physics and communications theory
  • Experience building mission-critical software applications around geolocation and/or RF processing
  • Solid written and oral communication
  • M.S. or Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or comparable
  • Experience with radar signal processing and geolocation
  • Hands-on experience building RF-based applications including communication and/or measurement systems (such as time-of-arrival and frequency-of-arrival)
  • Comfortable deploying software into a Docker and/or Kubernetes environment
  • Experience working with large python and/or C++ projects in a team environment: git-based workflow, unit and integration testing, pull request reviews
