Job Title:

Algorithm Development Engineer - Stevenage, United Kingdom

Salary Range:

£40.00 - £55.00

Job Description:

World Class Defence Organisation based in Bristol is currently looking to recruit 2x Algorithm Development Engineer subcontractor on an initial 6 month contract.

This role would suit a candidate who comes from a background of Algorithm development who also has Simulink / Matlab knowledge as well as a background in Simulation and Modelling or as a Systems Engineer.  FORTRAN / C skills would be nice as would a background in Aerospace / Defence although this is not mandatory.

Hourly Rate: The Company are offering excellent rates 

Contract Duration: 6 Months (initially and then very much long-term thereafter).

Security Information:  Please Note you must be eligible for SC Security Clearance (unfortunately due to security restrictions for this role, the candidate will need to be a British National with no dual nationality and must have resided in the UK for at least 4 of the past 5 years).

Algorithm Development Engineer Job Description:

The position focuses on the design, development and proving of algorithms for missile, Command & Control (C2) and Mission Planning applications. This includes algorithms in the domains of: control, guidance and navigation; image processing for EO and RF systems; data fusion, classification/pattern-recognition & tracking; decision making and motion/route planning for decision support and autonomous systems.

The role may involves aspects of algorithm design and proving; analysis of closed-loop model simulations; analysis of sub-system and system trials/firing data; generation and maintenance of design documents; preparation and presentation of material at reviews; working with Systems, Simulation & Modelling and Software Engineers to support the integration and validation of algorithm performance and the embedded software.

The hosting department works through the full lifecycle, including research studies and development/certification. The work of the hosting department is broad, and there is scope for existing team members to be moved around to accommodate candidates with particular skills. 

Skills and Experience

A background from a numerate discipline (Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Information Engineering) with strong mathematical and analytical skills is essential. The main toolset used is Matlab / Simulink, but experience in FORTRAN or C would be relevant for legacy products. Consequently, candidates must be comfortable with developing , testing and working with algorithms/models using such tools.

Ideally candidates should have some knowledge/experience of one or more of the following domains: Flight Dynamics, Dynamic systems, Optimal Control, Multivariable Control, H-infinity, Mu-analysis, guidance systems, trajectory optimisation, estimation/tracking and Kalman filters, integrated navigation, computer vision, image and signal processing for detection and tracking, autonomous systems, pattern-recognition, decision making, artificial intelligence/machine learning. However, candidates possessing a strongly mathematical background who can apply themselves to these domains are also of interest. Candidates from an academic background are suitable.
