Research Engineer Integration and Testing - Competitive- Sheffield

The Role

Do you have an Electronic Engineering or Computer Science degree? Do you have strong software development skills in one or more common languages such as C++/ Python? If so, we have the perfect opportunity for you.

This is an exciting opportunity to work in an agile team, on embedded systems development within an artificial intelligence (AI) start-up. The successful candidate will be able to communicate effectively to realise common goals, participate in projects at all stages and address customer feedback.

Key Responsibilities

The key responsibilities of a Research Engineer include, but are not limited to:

  • Build out of tooling / automation / devOps to support rapid testing of our autonomy system.
  • Perform functional, stress, and performance tests on multiple levels within the system including hardware-in-the-loop across supported hardware platforms.
  • Identify effective test strategies for new/existing features and craft test plans accordingly to support rapid prototyping and initial commercial evaluation.
  • Analyse issues detected in the tests and work closely with the other research engineers to fix issues and validate software changes.
  • Build test and verification into continuous integration workflows.

The Company

Opteran moves beyond today's Deep Learning AI to re-engineer 600 million years of evolution in insect brains onto a silicon chip. This breakthrough enables machines to see, sense, navigate and make autonomous decisions with a smaller, lighter and more efficient solution that operates off-network without training.

This is a different approach to autonomy, which doesn't succumb to the problems of machine learning. We reverse engineer real brains to produce autonomous systems that are robust and hyper-efficient; we call this approach 'natural intelligence'.

The Person

The key skills and qualities of a Research Engineer include:

  • University Degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Strong software development skills in one or more common languages such as C++ / Python.
  • 3+ years of experience in software systems engineering, including hardware and software integration.
  • Experience troubleshooting on both software and hardware level.
  • A strong track record in collaborative project work including version control and agile / lean methodologies.

Desirable skills (but not essential)

  • Experience with testing robotic or autonomous systems
  • Experience in developing with embedded C from ground up OR extensive experience in similar programming environment
  • GPU and FPGA programming experience
  • Track record of delivering documentation for standards and certification
  • Experience working with robotic or drone operating systems e.g., ROS1/2, PX4
  • Proven ability to deliver projects from concept to submission with Unity and C#
