Desired Skills
Data Structures & Algorithms
  • Your applied math skills stand out even among aerospace engineers
  • You think simulations and working with hardware are both fun
  • You have owned and developed controls solutions for a team project, thesis, or competition
  • Exposure in one or more of the following areas: precision integrated inertial navigation, dynamic modeling of complex systems, linear control analysis, or optimal control with uncertainty
  • Software engineering skills, preferably with both embedded software (C, C++) and technical computing (MATLAB, python, Julia, etc.). Experience with Github and working in a multi-developer environment is an advantage
  • Contribute to the design, implementation, testing and release of innovative flight algorithms that improve the operational performance of our vehicle controllers
  • Create tools and tests to demonstrate your design performance and protect against software regressions, using both theoretical guarantees and simulations
  • Analyze flight data to assess recent changes and upgrades, looking for regressions and potential areas for future improvement
  • Design onboard integrity tests to communicate when the system performance is degraded
  • Present key results and changes to the broader engineering team
