Software Engineer

Company: Maxar Technologies
Location: Ypsilanti
Posted on: May 24, 2020

Job Description:

Maxar Technologies is part of the new space economy. We provide vertically integrated capabilities in satellite technology, development and operations; innovations in Earth observation; advanced geospatial analytics and insights from machine learning. The worlds foremost businesses and governments trust us to solve their mission-critical challenges.

The Sensor Programs team develops specialized, innovative new sources of geospatial data, analytic methods, software and engineering services. Our work transforms how customers support global mapping and intelligence missions at scale, revealing unique information and insights. We contribute to integrated space solutions by harnessing and applying disruptive technologies.

Imaging Radar Software Development

We lead the field in radar image processing, pioneering and enabling new remote sensing concepts and systems. We deploy robust, scalable, operational software with the latest algorithmic techniques. Our teams integrate highly talented individuals with backgrounds in engineering, physics and software development, who work together to build solutions for users in the defense and intelligence communities. We solve tough problems and are looking for like-minded developers to grow our team and address new challenges.

Our signal and image processing experts focus on science rather than efficiency and prototype their ideas in Python or MATLAB; once validated, the software development team integrates their results into our operational software baseline, reusing existing components where possible and implementing with efficiency and scalability in mind.

Our radar image processing code is written in C++. It is computationally intensive and deals with very large memory footprints. We design modular, reusable, cross-platform applications which are multi-threaded for speed, efficient in memory usage, and horizontally scalable across hundreds of machines using packages such as MPI and Apache Spark. We take code design seriously we use Jenkins for CI/CD; perform code reviews that address style, efficiency and reusability; and perform frequent benchmarking and regression testing on updated baselines. We run our teams via agile processes that prioritize work, measure progress, and ensure we meet our milestones while allowing our developers to focus on development rather than meetings.

Our team collaborates on development projects with staff at other company locations, including those in Northern Virginia and Florida. We partner with providers such as Amazons AWS team to ensure our designs take full advantage of the latest cloud advancements. We interact routinely with other companies who share our commitment to our customers and their missions.

We are well represented within our professional community and highly respected for our work. We stay at the edge of science and technology to offer the best ideas and applications. Please join our team.

Where We Work and Live

We work at a modern R&D facility near Ann Arbor, Michigan. The city and its surroundings receive consistently high national rankings as a best place to live, with outstanding educational opportunities (K-12 and major universities); a laid-back, college-town vibe, well-suited to all ages and lifestyles; affordable housing; easy commutes; an educated and skilled workforce; numerous high-tech employers; social, cultural and sporting events; and ready access to nearby outdoor recreation, including the rest of Michigan, the Great Lakes, and the Midwest.
