Software Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to build an edge system that will support ISR operations for the next decade? You need the right combination of clean code, APIs, analytics, and infrastructure to build a user focused solution. As a lead software engineer, you’ll develop modern FPGA-based solutions to compute with lower power and higher speeds in the most austere environments.

As a software engineer on our team, you’ll lead a team of developers to overcome your customer’s most difficult challenges using the latest architectural approaches for near-real-time video devices alongside open source frameworks and tools like ffmpeg. You’ll use your passion to adopt new tools and techniques, and mentor your team as you identify and implement system improvements. Using whatever tools you feel are best for the job, you’ll ensure the solution you’re developing considers the current architecture and operating environment, as well as future functionality and enhancements.

Work with us as we build systems to change video security for the better.
