An Opportunity to Invent and Innovate
Hawk Eye 360’s Processing Team is seeking a Software Signal Processing developer who’s ready to design and implement Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and geolocation algorithms. You’ll write code that executes on the payload of our small, LEO satellites as they speed through space collecting RF signals. And once those collections are downlinked to earth, you’ll implement advanced processing in a cloud environment to generate geolocation data that feeds our analytics pipeline.
Our algorithms are mathematically rigorous. You’ll be mentored by a world class team who can help you build upon your academic and professional background to address challenges and opportunities only available at HawkEye360.
A heterogenous processing environment is required to deliver our RF data products including embedded Linux, FPGAs, and cloud computing resources. We program in C++, Python, and Verilog, and we leverage the GNU Radio open source software toolkit. Our developers utilize a complex system-level test bed to simulate RF signals that precisely mimic what our satellites see on-orbit. This enables the characterization, optimization, and regression test of algorithms in advance of their deployment into space-based and ground-based production systems. We regularly participate in signal collection exercises using aircraft and terrestrial vehicles to ensure that our simulations match reality.
Our signal processing code sits in the center of the HawkEye360 pipeline, tightly integrated to sensors on our spacecraft and to an analytics pipeline that synthesizes our geolocation and RF data products into a format that our government and commercial customers can consume. We rapidly iterate on our design and interfaces, requiring frequent and effective communication throughout our engineering organization. We need engineers who are curious about big picture concepts and also possess the design skills to make them a reality.
