Infoscitex (IST), a DCS company, has an opportunity for an outstanding Software Engineer / Architect to join our team to support an extensive modeling, simulation and analysis effort in our Dayton, OH, office. Our team is researching ideas for advanced aircraft system design. More specifically, we are researching methods to manage the dissipation of energy and heat associated with various aircraft control techniques (I.e., sensors, engine, etc.).
We are developing software simulation models, algorithms and related materials in support of research in the areas of air vehicle autonomy and human-autonomous systems interactions. In this role, you will be asked to provide the leadership, considering design protocols, to bring the information accumulated by various subject matter experts (SME’s) to help determine the appropriate method to create and integrate real time software to monitor all concerns.
Essential Job Functions:
Provide the Computer Science structure control expertise to achieve our objective.
Design, develop, test, and deploy software architectures for autonomy and control applications.
Apply and tailor rigorous software development processes within agile research and development environment.
Apply systems and software engineering principles to manage system complexity, reduce integration time, and increase reusability.
Clearly document code and software architecture and share with stakeholders at design reviews.
Due to the sensitivity of customer related requirements, U.S. Citizenship is required.
Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related technical discipline and at least 8 years of related experience.
