Avionics Hardware Engineering /
Full Time /
We're building safety-enhancing technology for aviation that will save lives. Automated aviation systems will enable a future where air transportation is safer, more convenient and fundamentally transformative to the way goods — and eventually people — move around the planet. We are a team of mission-driven engineers with experience across aerospace, robotics and self-driving cars working to make this future a reality.

As a Sr. Radar Systems Engineer, you will be a part of our Avionics Hardware Engineering team. Your work will help bring together mechanical, electrical, GNC, and safety requirements to produce complex components that are key to the success of our efforts to automate aviation. You’ll collaborate with a broad set of teams to develop a system architecture and incorporate requirements across the hardware/software stack.   


In your role as a Sr. Radar Systems Engineer, you will be responsible for phased array radar system analysis, and radar processing algorithm development. Implementation of algorithms in Matlab, Python or C++. You will drive the system level development of phased array radar. Drive trade studies and help the hardware team develop circuit level requirements. You will work across engineering teams to implement and troubleshoot your radar processing algorithms. You will be the owner of real time processing of radar algorithms on an FPGA, DSP-based platform. You will support the integration of the radar on the aircraft and support data collection and analysis during flight testing.
