Rapid Prototyping Signal Processing Engineer


Dublin, CA, USA

Full time

This job is no longer accepting applications.

AEye develops advanced vision hardware, software and algorithms that act as the eyes and visual cortex of autonomous vehicles. Since its demonstration of its solid state LiDAR scanner in 2013, AEye has pioneered breakthroughs in intelligent sensing. The company is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and backed by world-renowned investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Intel, Airbus, Subaru, LG Electronics, Hella, and more.

AEye is looking for a highly motivated signal processor for coding and experimenting with innovative algorithms for the control and processing of an agile LiDAR system. This individual will transform “white board level” descriptions of new, untested, algorithms for controlling and processing LiDAR data. 

The successful candidate will have a BS in EE, Math, or Computer Science, with work experience highly desirable. LiDAR and or radar signal processing experience also desirable but not required. What is essential however is to interact with and augment a team developing complex (yet compellingly elegant) (a) optimization tools for LiDAR shot lists and (b) receiver processing for enhanced performance. While the successful candidate will begin translating basic pseudo code and whiteboard level, it is anticipated that over time opportunities to contribute to research algorithms will arise, based on aptitude and interest.

Tasks, Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Translate ideas into prototype code.
  • Test code of simulated data.
  • Transition proven prototype code to the product team to implement, through documentation and one on one knowledge sharing.

Essential Skills & Experience Requirements (required):

  • Fluency in matrix algebra such as least squares, linear and quadratic programming.
  • Programming in MATLAB with C++, python desirable.
  • Code reviews and scrum processes.
  • Fourier analysis, filter design, etc.

Preferred Skills & Experience (useful):

  • Experience in a fast-paced and demanding start-up experience.
