Job description/Person specification

Role Purpose:

We are looking for scientists and engineers who can solve complex problems in sensing, communications and secure navigation, with potential to work across multiple domains (space, air, land, maritime and cyber) on some of the most interesting and technically challenging scientific and engineering projects in the UK.

Key Accountabilities:

You will plan and structure your own work with guidance and direction from project managers and technical leads, including:
• Researching customer needs and requirements to align technical outputs;
• Exercising discretion on a variety of complex assignments identifying risk and opportunity;
• Promoting innovation, inventiveness and high standards of excellence within the team.

Functional Knowledge:

You should ideally have skills in a number of the following areas:
• Mathematical modelling;
• Algorithm design and development;
• Digital signal processing;
• Data fusion techniques (including Kalman Filtering);
• Matlab or Simulink modelling (IDL, Python, C / C++ coding may be equally beneficial).

Interest or broad understanding of key principles relating to RF sensing, communication systems and protocols, navigation and/or geolocation techniques would be beneficial, but you’ll have all the support and professional development opportunities you need to make a real impact for our customers.

As a global company of over 6,000 dedicated people providing technological and scientific expertise, we are excited to recruit the most talented and enthusiastic people to become key parts of our business. With a dedicated career pathways framework and a focused professional development process, we are committed to supporting our employees to continuously develop and grow their skills and careers.

Person Specification:

• Innovative self-starters able to show initiative. We’re looking for enthusiastic team players who can help develop concepts and solutions to our customers’ challenges.
• Good analytical skills. Able to make evaluative judgements based on modelling and simulation or analysis of factual information.
• Sound and comprehensive communications skills in order to exchange complex information both within the team and to external customers.

Experience & Qualifications

• A degree in Science, Engineering or Mathematics, or an equivalent, nationally recognised professional qualification.

• Demonstrable experience working as part of multi-disciplined technical teams, responsible for delivery of defined components, sub-systems or functionality.

The successful candidate will be required to undertake a vetting process and maintain appropriate security clearance. There are a number of roles for which we will not be able to accept applications from Dual Nationals.
