Job Description

Recent advances in digital signal processing have revolutionized many domains, including having a major influence in radar and electronic warfare (EW) systems that must observe, exploit and deny the increasingly complex and congested electronic magnetic (EM) spectrum.

Group 39 seeks an embedded software engineer to support the development of real-time processing systems and software. A software engineer is sought to provide expertise in real-time embedded systems, test equipment automation and control, and the design and implementation of distributed processing systems. The successful candidate will have extensive knowledge of the operating systems and be comfortable with system level programming in C/C++. Prior experience with device drivers, socket and multithreaded programming, and real-time systems are strongly desired. The candidate should be able to quickly learn EW and RF systems concepts and work with a diverse team of systems and mission experts to apply techniques that have practical value to the DoD community. The candidate should be able to work well in teams and is expected to effectively participate in fast-paced, multidisciplinary teams of system design, system integration, and signal analysis engineers and scientists. Candidate should be a motivated self-starter with the ability and interest to learn new application areas and leverage knowledge in physics, mathematics, or related engineering fields to solve complex problems. Significant experience with application of signal processing and/or AI/ML techniques is desired. Knowledge and experience with design and analysis tools such as MATLAB or equivalent is required. Demonstrated oral and written communications skills are necessary.


BS. in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering, or Computer Science.
