Senior Principal Machine Learning Systems Engineer
The Cognitive Electronic Warfare (EW) Capability Group is developing advanced cognitive algorithms for a wide variety of current and future platforms and systems. Our team of EW, software, data, and machine learning engineers work closely with leading machine learning researchers and scientist to productize and extend the capabilities of what is possible in machine learning to increases the effectiveness of our current and future EW systems and platforms.
The Cognitive EW Capability group is looking to add additional highly experienced machine learning, software, and EW engineers to join our team in the pursuit of developing, integrating, testing and deploying advanced cognitive algorithms in the areas of RF sensing, detection, identification, tracking, and response using the latest adaptive signal processing, machine learning, and information theory technologies, in addition to others. Key technology advancements in Cognitive EW capabilities will improve air/sea vehicle situational awareness, survivability, and allow for executing suppression and destruction of enemy air defenses.
The work will be conducted at BAE Systems Electronic Combat Solutions division and responsibilities will include being an individual technical contributor on a related range of programs and Independent Research & Developments (IRADs).
The Engineer is expected to be involved in the entire development cycle starting from design/analysis, to algorithm development, simulation modeling, implementation and product realization including integration, debug, and testing.
Primary technical contributor and leads teams in areas such as algorithm development, signal processing, threat analysis, system and/or software architecture definition and analysis, modeling and simulation, data analytics, probability and statistical analysis and methods, and machine/deep learning. Will be expected to independently formulate and implement complex system solutions.
