Data Infrastructure

Job Description / Skills Required

Swift Navigation is looking for an outstanding software engineer in data infrastructure. You will work with a small team to push the state of the art in satellite navigation 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.

As a member of the automation team, you'll contribute to services shared broadly by Swift's R&D teams:

Hardware in the Loop Testing. We build and maintain custom hardware racks for running hardware in the loop (HITL) tests. You will be writing the code to improve the process of running tests and collecting the results.

Expanding and Improving Test Suite. We work with engineers throughout the company to create tests for new features and improve efficiency and coverage of current tests.

Integration Infrastructure. Much of our current work involves rigorously demonstrating that our hardware product works as intended when leaving the lab for a variety of customer scenarios in real-world environments. You'll build and use automation frameworks and assemble instrumentation for hardware-in-the-loop testing, fault injection, and regression testing across these scenarios, as well as data analysis pipelines and metrics monitoring for test units under firmware and manufacturing validation.
Candidates should have skills and experience with:
