Job Description:

Now hiring an Autonomy Software Engineer in San Luis Obispo!Trillium Technical is looking for an Autonomy Software Engineer!

The company is seeking an experienced autonomy/AI software engineer that can lead the development of our onboard flight autonomy agent. You will design and implement autonomy algorithms to run on Nvidia Jetson processors to enable autonomous flight behaviors in a variety of real-world environments. This autonomy system will make fundamental decisions about aircraft flight behavior in the absence of human involvement and must handle a variety of dynamic real-world conditions and events including weather, wind, threats, target, and degradations to aircraft state. This is not a laboratory science project. The software you develop will be deployed on fielded aircraft that actively perform operations around the world.

Primary Responsibilities
--- Lead the design and implementation of the onboard flight autonomy agent on a Jetson processor and interface the Jetson compute node to the aircraft's onboard vehicle management system
--- Implement and/or integrate autonomous path planning algorithms on a Jetson processor to enable the aircraft to autonomously respond to high-level mission needs
--- Implement and/or integrate autonomous flight performance models to enable autonomous generation of optimal flight paths in degraded aircraft states
--- Implement a decision agent to autonomous react to contingency situations including external factors (adverse weather, threats) and onboard mission-critical or flight-critical events (lost comms, lost engine, degraded flight control)
--- Create a simulation test environment to validate autonomous behavior and test your code in a System Integration Lab (SIL), Hardware Integration Lab (HIL), and Flight Test
--- Debug, troubleshoot, and isolate software issues

If interested, please apply today!--- Experience writing autonomy algorithms that run on Jetson Processors
--- Proficient in core languages applicable to Jetson deployment (e.g. C++)
--- Solid understanding of algorithms, data structures, and design patterns
--- Understanding of path planning algorithms (e.g. Dijkstra, A , etc.)
--- Strong sense of ownership and drive in digging into complex problems

Desired Qualifications
--- Understanding of UAS architectures and subsystems
--- Understanding of flight-critical software requirements
--- Understanding of Flight Behavior and Aircraft Performance
--- Experience building a System Integration Lab (SIL) or Hardware Integration Lab (HIL) for Unmanned Aircraft
--- Experience supporting flight test
--- Practical experience writing firmware/embedded code for a physical deviceBy applying to this job, I agree to receive electronic communications including SMS text and email regarding future opportunities, referral bonus incentives, and other promotions from Trillium. You may opt out at any time from future communications by responding STOP to any electronic communication.
