Swift Navigation, Inc. provides precise positioning solutions for automotive, autonomous vehicle, mobile and mass market applications. What began as the GNSS industry’s first low-cost, high-accuracy, real-time kinematic (RTK) receiver has evolved into a Swift Navigation ecosystem of positioning solutions for autonomous applications. From the nationwide GNSS corrections delivered from the cloud by the Skylark™ precise positioning service, the hardware-independent, integrated software solution that is the Starling® Positioning Engine to the centimeter-level accurate Piksi® Multi and ruggedized Duro® and Duro Inertial RTK receivers, Swift Navigation is enabling a future of autonomous vehicles to navigate and understand the world.

Swift Navigation is looking for an outstanding Principal Sensor Fusion Engineer to work on the integration of relative positioning sensors with an RTK centimeter accurate GNSS solution. You will be working with a small team of experts to push the state of the art in satellite navigation and relative sensors technology, making high accuracy positioning ubiquitous and easy to use across a wide variety of industries and applications in unmanned aerial vehicles, robotics and autonomous transportation. Your focus will be to lead and grow the development of a sensor fusion positioning system team combining on-board IMU observations and other sensors with an existing RTK GNSS engine to allow positioning in GNSS degraded environments.

The ideal candidate has contributed to the design and implementation of a production-grade GNSS / INS sensor fusion engine. He/she is a master of the principles of inertial navigation, is familiar with filtering techniques applied to non-linear systems and has experience with challenges related to real-world IMU measurements (vibrations,..) . He/she has deep experience working in C++ for the development and commercialization of sensor fusion algorithms.

Job Responsibilities include:

  • Contribute to prototyping, design and implementation of sensor fusion algorithms in C++

  • Architecture of a positioning filter engine combining multiple input sensors to produce an optimal position result

  • Work with product management to develop solutions to address customer needs

  • Lead and grow a world class sensor fusion team

  • Maintain and support existing high precision products

  • Code Review and collaborate with team members to ensure the quality of overall code development.

You should have skills and experience with:

  • GNSS and IMU integration strategies

  • Been involved with the development and launch of a commercial sensor fusion product

  • Familiarity and mastery of C++ and associated software development tools

  • Familiarity with git and version control systems

  • Demonstrated ability to lead small teams to execute on highly technical projects

  • Works well in a collaborative team environment

We prefer if you possess skills in one or more of:

  • Experience with visual odometry systems

  • Knowledge of high precision ambiguity RTK GNSS

  • Demonstrated ability and experience with OO Software architectures

Benefits & Perks

  • Unlimited vacation, competitive salary, stock options, employer covered health insurance, 401(k), term life insurance.
  • Fully stocked kitchen, weekly catered lunches, hackathons, tech-talks.
  • Company paid gym membership.
  • Close to public transportation, casual work environment 
  • Growth and learning opportunities from a startup environment include working closely with an international team of scientists, engineers, platform architects, programmers and professionals.
