Turn Invention Into Innovation:
HawkEye 360 is currently seeking a Senior Software Engineer who will contribute to processing and analytics systems by leveraging sound architectural principals and designing robust interfaces.  Whether the software is running on-satellite, at ground sites, or within the cloud, the delivery of valuable, mission-critical and time-sensitive data products requires rigorous design and automated testing at every level.  You'll be exposed to sophisticated algorithms to detect, and geolocate specific RF signals. as well as cutting-edge analytics from deep convolutional neural networks and bayesian propagation networks to statistical anomaly detection.  As you leverage your software expertise to help us host these algorithms on a world class platform, you'll also get opportunities to learn and contribute to algorithm development.

Responsibilities

We’ll Expect You To…
  • Work with the senior technical staff to define the software/firmware architecture for the spacecraft payload and ground station components as they relate to processing and analytic compute needs.
  • Develop modeling and simulation software to predict and validate performance metrics and to demonstrate data visualization techniques.
  • Develop for the embedded systems that comprise the spacecraft processing payload.
  • Develop tests at the unit, component, and system level, forming a continuous integration pipeline that prevents regressions as we continually enhance our software.

Qualifications

You’ll Need to Have…

About HawkEye 360:

 

WE’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT SOLVING BIG PROBLEMS
Big problems call for big data. At HawkEye 360, we are developing a technology solution that will provide customers with data products and knowledge to make critical decisions. We will find meaning in the signals and information that we collect, and merge this with other important information to bring a whole new level of visualization to our customers.
WE ARE FOCUSED AND STRATEGIC
It’s easy to get distracted and watch the sky. At HawkEye 360, we will focus on our customers’ needs while understanding the strategic nature of each and every problem brought to us to solve. And we thrive on a good challenge!
WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF COLLABORATION AND CREATIVITY
At HawkEye 360, we believe that collaboration is critical to solving problems. We will seek input from customers, partners, advisors and the community to identify and bring the best solutions to market. Many of our systems will tap into a large community of developers and companies. We will research and evaluate open-source solutions first before spending time and money developing something ourselves. Our iterative creativity and collaborative approach will drive innovation and feed our spirit.
WE ARE PUSHING THE BOUNDS OF WHAT SMALL SATELLITES CAN DO
The smallsat industry is changing the market dynamics of space. At HawkEye 360, we are committed to advancing smallsat utilization to allow for a whole new level of agility and capability on orbit.
HawkEye 360 is an RF analytics company that is developing a constellation of small satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO) to generate reports on wireless signals that can be used to track and monitor global transportation networks, assist with emergencies, as well as provide other data analytics services to a broad range of customers. The company seeks to provide highly accurate activity based data products by processing multiple sources of information (RF, Imagery, open source Internet) to create a wealth of current and historical data useful for commercial and government customers.
