Software Engineer - SEAL
Location: Atlanta, GA
Categories: Algorithm Development, Electronic Warfare, Embedded Systems, High Performance Computing, Human Factors, ISR & Tactical Systems, Machine Learning, Modeling/Simulation, Radar, Sensors Integration, Signal Processing, Software Development/Design
The Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory (SEAL) of the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is seeking technical personnel to be part of an established software team that has multiple opportunities for software engineers within the Software Engineering and Architecture Division (SEAD) at Smyrna, GA. The SEAD group mission is to provide world-class software to be used in sensors, signal processing, electronic warfare, tracking, and intelligence surveillance reconnaissance (ISR) systems deployed on land, air, and sea. Our software team employs a modern software engineering process to design, code, integrate, and test capabilities on a continuous basis resulting in a mature and quality solution for our customers. We strive for technical excellence by drawing upon a diverse workforce whose knowledge base covers the complete spectrum of modern computing languages and platforms.
The successful candidates will be involved in software design, development, integration, and testing of real-time systems and working as a team with the hardware and algorithm engineers. Our real-time software applications are developed using C and C++ and our forensic applications utilize Python programming languages running on a variety of computing platforms running Linux and Windows operating systems. SEAD utilizes productive modern (Agile) and industry-proven software development processes and environments.
The candidate will be an active engineering participant on the project team, performing development tasks independently, and will provide developed and tested software capabilities. This successful candidate will have software development opportunities for various types of software functionality (real-time, high performance, machine learning, implementing specific algorithms, middleware, hardware interfaces, GUIs, and networking).
