Job Description

Solidus is searching for an Embedded Software Engineer to develop real time embedded software using C/C++, Python and associated static code analysis and automated testing in the hardware.

The Software Engineer will join a team that is focused on the synthesis of dynamic and complex control and autonomous systems, from concept to realization, for a wide variety of prototypes. Prototype applications span various mission areas, such as space control; air, missile and maritime defense; communication and tactical systems; homeland protection; and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems.

The team has expertise in dynamic stabilization and platform control; advanced autonomy; pointing, acquisition, and tracking; guidance; navigation and estimation; robotics; mapping; intra- and inter-system planning (e.g., swarming); demanding real-time embedded software and firmware control; image processing; machine learning; human-machine interaction; space-qualified electronics; and analog and power electronics. Applied research and development projects include space optical payloads, small satellites, airborne laser radars and imaging systems, and autonomous air, ground, and maritime systems.

- Develop real time embedded software (C/C++ and Python) for a space-based Microchip micro-controller and associated static code analysis and automated testing in the hardware.
- Work closely with a small team to define and develop the software and the testing approach, develop automated testing scripts and some requirements based on high-level system requirements as well as the overall design, and perform static code analysis and implementation with documentation, and test of the system running in and controlling the hardware.
- Software configuration control and development of overall testing strategies.

Required skills:
- ship AND an Active Secret Clearance
- BS in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Electrical Engineering plus 1 year minimum of relevant experience implementing and testing real-time software for demanding physical environments and high-reliability applications such as a space-based, space flight, underwater, or aerospace systems OR Associates Degree plus 3 years minimum experience.
- Hands-on real-world experience with software development, static analysis, and test tools as detailed below.
- Developing code, testing tools & scripts, designing, testing, benchmarking, and programming software for a Microchip embedded microcontroller for a hard real-time (time-deterministic) environment using C/C++ and Python languages.
- Creating and executing static analysis and automated testing scripts for high-reliability applications Integration and testing of the software while utilizing and controlling the hardware in a laboratory setting.
- Familiarity with various types of laboratory instrumentation, including oscilloscopes, waveform function generators, logic analyzers, frequency counters, and meters.
- Hands-on experience and a strong desire to work on all aspects of software development including architecting, design, analysis, implementation, integration with the hardware, and test in a laboratory setting.
- Must have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and be able to work in a team-oriented environment with minimal supervision.

Preferred skills:
- Strong preference for experience with high-reliability real-time software development & test for space flight systems
- Desirable but not strictly required; DevOps, Matlab, Simulink, PSpice, VxWorks or real-time Linux, electronic design for digital, analog, mixed signal, and power conditioning
