Embedded Linux Software Engineer - Tunisia

Description

About Ubotica Technologies

Ubotica Technologies provides smarts for smart satellites. 

Our products and services are used by global space industry partners to deliver real-time insights directly to users.

Ubotica is at the heart of semi-autonomous satellite systems that provide real-time insights from flexible on-board edge compute processing and that use affordable, low energy hardware. The Ubotica CogniSat platform was developed by technology innovators with deep insight into processing hardware, computer vision software and AI system integration. CogniSat technology has already been proven in multiple space flown projects with partners in Europe and the USA, including NASA JPL and the European Space Agency (ESA).

Ubotica is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland with a team of AI Engineers based in DCU Alpha, and has a team of Computer Vision Engineers in Spain and Canada, and a team of space systems experts in the Netherlands based in the Aerospace Innovation Hub at the TU Delft Campus. Additionally the company has recently established a small but growing team in Tunisia focused on deep-learning core technology.

The founders of the company have deep expertise in the advanced technology sector globally and have developed innovative technology, successfully brought complex products to market and delivered high value exits including Parthus Technologies, GloNav and most recently Movidius which was bought by Intel.

Ubotica recently announced a partnership with Open Cosmos for a joint mission to provide on-board edge computing in space on CogniSat-6. 

Job Description

This engineer will work on the design of a user application (client) and the integration with the host-side functions, reporting to the lead data-scientist and project leader in Tunisia.

The purpose of the user application is to demonstrate the features of the system in a meaningful way to a customer or partner. The User-Application and API(s) will be designed in such a way as to insulate the user as far as possible from any specifics in terms of underlying hardware or communications protocols used.

The first phase of the project is a proof-of-concept based on the generic Linux Ubuntu/Debian platform. Where possible the PoC will attempt to mitigate any portability issues between the PoC and second phase which makes use of an embedded Linux hardware platform rather than a PC.

Role and responsibilities

  • Design, code and integrate software for an embedded Linux target (Applications, drivers, firmware, etc)
  • Experience with RTOS applications
  • Deployment and maintenance of Linux distribution on the hardware platform 
  • Analyse, review, and enhance efficiency, stability, and scalability of project resources
  • Perform unit tests, verification, and validation of the written codes
  • Participate in the software development documentation 

Required skills and Experience

  • At least Bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering, computer science, or related fields
  • Experience in embedded systems development and troubleshooting with RTOS
  • Experience with embedded Linux programming/development
  • Knowledge of Linux kernel
  • C/C++ programming with RTOS
  • Familiar with a scripting language (Preferably Python)
  • As an international company the working language is English and written and spoken proficiency is required
  • Proactive problem solving
  • Eagerness to continually learn and improve
  • Dynamic, autonomous, and team-oriented individual
  • A track record of pro-active learning and use of SoTA tools is expected
