The Robotics Software Engineer will be focused on designing, developing, and deploying software for novel autonomous vehicle systems. This software drives AGN&C (autonomy, guidance, navigation, and control) algorithms and interfaces with hardware sensors and actuators. The software is developed such that it is reconfigurable, testable, and extendable for future feature integration. Tasks include: refactoring existing robotics code for use in a ROS-environment; re-architecting software to take advantage of ROS features; and supporting regression test architectures. The candidate will develop software for real-time autonomy/AI for both air and undersea-based systems; single- and multi-vehicle operations; and the simulation environments to support those efforts. Creative candidates who want to make an immediate impact will thrive in the MORSE environment.
Skills & Requirements
The candidate must be eager to learn new technologies and stay on top of the latest trends. The candidate will work on a team developing new code bases that are heavily object-oriented, extensible, and maintainable. Therefore, the candidate must have a tacit understanding of design patterns and anti-patterns; polymorphism and encapsulation; high cohesion and low coupling; and the different strengths and weakness of various programming languages. In addition, the candidate must be a good teammate who is willing to learn and work with legacy code (as opposed to rewriting everything), use tools selected by the team, and follow processes defined by the team.
