Job Description:

Does creating software that enables interplanetary spacecrafts to perform autonomous precision landings, collision avoidance, or asteroid impact missions sound fun to you? How about modeling sensors such as LIDAR and optical cameras for that spacecraft? Do you want to apply your understanding of math and physics to real problems in space exploration? If so, we're looking for someone like you to join our team at APL. We are seeking a modeling and simulation software engineer that can help us develop high-quality physics-based simulations for our space missions. The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) Space Exploration Sector develops spacecraft for both National Security applications and NASA funded exploration missions. Our group is a collaborative team including software developers and embedded system engineers that develop the flight software and simulations for JHU/APL-developed spacecraft. This position would be responsible for developing and implementing simulations for sensor and environmental modeling (e.g., planetary terrains, optical models) required to test vision processing, multi-sensor fusion domains, and machine learning a modeling and simulation software developer - Your primary responsibility will be the development, test and maintenance of sensor/environmental models in our simulation environment. - You will interface with the spacecraft development team including the instrument team members, and Guidance, Navigation, and Control team members in addition to Scientists to understand the interfaces and requirements necessary to design, implement, and verify the sensor/environmental models. - You may lead, and collaborate with, a small team of software developers to implement and verify functionality of the models. - You will work with technical experts at JHU/APL to research, advance, and advocate for emerging software and simulation concepts that provide the ability to emulate environments that we have yet to explore. You meet our minimum qualifications for the job if you... - Have a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics, Computer Science, Electrical or Computer Engineering, or other related field. - Have 3+ years experience in development of software solutions to solve science and/or engineering problems, especially in simulations of real-world entities. - Have a basic understanding of math and physics, computer architectures, compilers, and tools required to develop software in a collaborative environment. - Have experience with software development in C and C++, and are willing to learn and use other languages as needed. - Strong curiosity and problem-solving skills. - Strong interpersonal skills, initiative, and independent follow-through. - Ability to communicate system-level solutions and technical direction, both to government sponsors, scientists, and to team members. - Are able to obtain TS/SCI level security clearance. If selected, you will be subject to a government security clearance investigation and must meet the requirements for access to classified information. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship. You'll go above and beyond our minimum requirements if you... - Have 5-10+ years of experience in sensor modeling, software development, and simulation optimization. - Have experience or interest in optics, 3D physics-based rendering, and visual perception. - Have experience in full lifecycle software development (requirements development through deployment/operational support), including compilers and SCM tools (git). - Experience with Linux, MacOS and Windows operating systems. - Are familiar with real-world sensor performance nuances. - Interest and an affinity towards leading a team, as leadership opportunities are available. - An Active TS/SCI clearance.
