What We Need and What You'll Get to Do:
We are in need of experienced engineers who have a strong background in math, electrical engineering with a solid understanding of communications and signal processing and should have an understanding of software development for the purposes of developing, debugging and testing algorithms/software for either pre-d (signal detection/characterization) and/or post-d (geolocation) signal processing.

Existing and/or self-developed Matlab algorithms will need to be translated/written into Java, C++/C classes. Existing legacy baselines will need to be studied and understood. Code based will need to be modernized and engineering analysis will be required to:
  • Improve upon new and different types of data being processed
  • Improve upon current time-frequency signal processing techniques
  • Maintain data clustering, extension, merging, characterization, defragmentation, and geolocation processing of data processing systems.
Our small agile team is highly energized and has a significant software effort on a growing program with a large program impact. If this is your type of work and environment, please consider joining our team.

This is a great opportunity for a flexible self-starter to work in a dynamic environment with real world technical content supporting a number of tools and systems. Plenty of opportunity for career advancement into technical leadership positions.
