Please know that we're taking all necessary measures to safeguard our employees, customers and the communities in which we live, including following all recommended best practices around social distancing.

With that in mind, in an abundance of caution, we are canceling all face to face career events, such as job fairs and open house events. In the coming days and weeks, we will be hosting career events virtually, using our online chat tools so that we may continue our hiring practice safely and securely. You can find available virtual career events at https://career-events.leidos.com.

We are using telephone meetings and online chats via Brazen to conduct interviews and hiring discussions, and we are offering options for video interviews so that you can have a virtual face to face meeting with your potential new leader. We do not conduct interviews or extend offers via text or chat based social media, such as WhatsApp or MySpace.

Description

Job Description:

Serve as a Robotics Engineer with a specialty in Computer Vision for the Applied Science Division in Huntsville, AL!  Our team’s mission is to: (1) develop and demonstrate new alternative navigation technologies to meet urgent military operational needs to operate in GPS-challenged environments, and (2) rapidly transition this technology to operational platforms to outpace the adversary threats currently being faced in the field.  Project involves small teams of engineers working together in spiral or agile development environments to meet aggressive customer schedules aimed at near-term field demonstrations of emerging capabilities.  Our core competencies include sensor fusion, computer vision, HW/SW integration, and machine learning.  Typical customers include Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) engineering centers, Office of Naval Research (ONR), and Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).  We are looking for a candidate who is interested in applying classic and deep learning computer visions algorithms from initial concept development through successful prototype field demonstrations.

THE CHALLENGE:

  • Develop perception algorithms using inputs from visible, infrared, radar, and LiDAR sensors to generate navigation measurements for use in sensor fusion algorithms
  • Prototype initial algorithms in preferred programming language (i.e., Python, Matlab, C++)
  • Transition prototype algorithms for real-time edge execution on various System on Chips (CPU/GPU, CPU/TPU, etc.)
  • Support field demonstrations of vision software on various manned and unmanned vehicles
  • Present techniques, solutions, and results to DoD customers and Leidos management
  • Develop proposals and concepts responding to customer requirements

WHAT SETS YOU APART:

  • BS degree in a scientific field such as computer science, math, data science, physics, or engineering with 8 – 12 years of prior relevant experience or Masters with 6 – 10 years of prior relevant experience. May possess a Doctorate in technical domain.
  • Four years or more of practical experience in applying computer vision to solve complex image processing problems using both classical and deep learning-based techniques, including tasks such as object detection, object recognition, and image retrieval
  • U.S. Citizen with the ability to obtain and maintain a Secret Security Clearance
  • Expertise with computer vision libraries such as OpenCV
  • Skilled in implementing various deep learning architectures, such as convolutional neural networks (CNNs), generative adversarial networks (GANs), and recurrent neural networks (RNNs)
  • Expertise in Python with additional experience in C++ and MATLAB
  • Proficient with PyTorch (preferred), TensorFlow, or similar AI/ML development framework
  • Confident working in a Linux development environment
  • Experience working with the Robot Operating System (ROS)
  • Willingness to travel to customer sites and test facilities (typically 1 week of travel or less per quarter)

           

YOU MIGHT ALSO HAVE:

  • Experience with Apache TVM or other similar frameworks for AI/ML acceleration for deployment to edge devices
  • Experience also developing algorithms that process vision measurements such as Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), visual odometry (VO), photogrammetry, and structure-from-motion (SfM)
  • Experience working and collaborating on multi-disciplinary teams, including leading and mentoring small technical teams
  • Existing US security clearance (Secret or above)
