Unit 9 Armstrong Mall, Southwood Business Park, Farnborough, Hampshire GU14 0NR, United Kingdom
We are looking for an Embedded Systems Engineer to assist us with the design and implementation of a command and control system for our in-house developed autonomous underwater drone.
Boss is an innovative tech start up with strong shareholders including BP and Woodside. Our vision is to disrupt the Marine Seismic industry through the development of a large-scale autonomous ocean bottom seismic data acquisition system, resulting in a step change reduction in the cost, time and HSSE risks required to acquire high quality OBS data. We help our clients to reduce their carbon emissions and their carbon footprint.
BOSS is developing a revolutionary, integrated seismic acquisition system based around long endurance, self-repositioning robotic ocean bottom nodes.
These nodes are capable of multiple autonomous re-positions to allow rolling of the receiver array without having to recover and redeploy nodes. This, in combination with automated handling systems, rapid deployment/recovery and intelligent system control, allows for optimisation of seismic acquisition survey operations to minimise duration and cost, and removes the requirement for ROV support.
Bonus Value Skills:
The role is broad – you will be required to assist with researching and analysing design concepts, designing and implementing solutions and testing/evaluating the development of C++ embedded system firmware and software modules across multiple platforms and from multiple aspects. Any prior experience or experimentation with IoT development will be beneficial.
Development of the control system will be within an autonomous middleware framework, with some potential to re-direct your focus and specialise in your preferred skillset as the project progresses.
The position may present opportunities for some domestic and international travel, both overseas within the company or meeting with stakeholders and to support testing and trials throughout project phases.
