About the role:
Seccuracy is looking for a highly ambitious, self-motivated, and experienced individual for the position of Robotics Software Engineer. In this role, you will design, implement, and test a broad range of software and firmware systems that are suitable for aircraft with vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capacity.

Job Requirements:
  • Develop advanced guidance, navigation, and control behaviours for autonomous, payload, long-range VTOL, aircraft operating in multiple complex scenarios
  • Work with machine vision and perception specialists to build a rich set of autonomous capabilities based upon sophisticated sensor fusion
  • Source, qualify, select and validate a variety of perception sensors
  • Source and/or develop sensor drivers as needed to pull data into the robotic system
  • Rapid prototyping of sensor and actuator subsystems to eliminate uncertainties in forward-looking aircraft design
  • Work closely with the Controls and Reliability teams to ensure a smooth handoff of validated systems
  • Assist in troubleshooting sensor, actuator and controls problems that arise in pre-production systems
  • Develop software and firmware that is a reproducible, traceable and transparent manner to ensure a streamline, efficient production system
  • Develop tests, set up continuous integration pipelines and document design decisions
  • Portuguese and English Speaking

Essential Qualification:

  • Advanced written and communication skills
  • The high degree of proficiency with program software and language used in embedded systems and robotics
  • Prior experience and practical operation of robotics and autonomous vehicle technologies and techniques such as stereo vision, mapping, localization, static, dynamic and non-cooperative obstacle avoidance, sensor fusion and filtering
  • Advanced knowledge of robotics algorithms and an understanding of real-time systems
  • Advanced knowledge of concurrent programming and memory management in bare metal, RTOS, or Linux based environments
  • Ability to read and write sensor and actuator drivers written in a C-like language
  • Experience using common Linux command-line tools for building and testing code
  • Ability to break down complex, long-term projects into a series of smaller iterations with finite time constraints
  • Minimum of three years of experience building a series of robotic systems
  • English and Portuguese Speaking


Desired Qualifications:

  • Prior experience building custom software for drones / UAVs / flying robots
  • Prior experience developing vision-based perception code, especially with Nvidia Jetson and CUDA
  • Prior experience developing safety-critical systems such as aerospace, automotive, rail, or medical devices
  • Prior experience working in a high-reliability software development practice such as ASTM F3201-16 or DO-178C
  • Prior experience working in an Agile development environment
