Company Overview: Dedrone is the world’s most trusted smart airspace security company. Hundreds of commercial, government and military customers around the world rely on Dedrone’s comprehensive, command and control (C2) solution to protect against the persistent and escalating threat from drones while enabling “good” drones to fly. By leveraging AI/ML, Dedrone is the only solution that provides continuous, autonomous interrogation and verification of drones that enables both multi-sensor and multi-mitigation options onto a single fused "pane-of-glass". Whether on-premise / air-gapped or in the cloud, Dedrone customers can easily detect, track, identify, analyze, and mitigate drone threats.

Dedrone is an airspace security company that builds a better future by stopping bad drones and enabling good drones to fly. Dedrone is a fast-paced environment that leverages cutting-edge mathematics and machine learning to solve real-world problems in tracking and fusion.

We are looking for a team member to develop and implement sensor data fusion algorithms for target tracking using various sources, including vision, radar, and RF sensors. In order to do so, you will write and optimize C++ code to help customers worldwide. You will work alongside experts in the field to bring cutting-edge ideas into production, in addition to collaborating with academic partners and industry experts to create state-of-the-art solutions.

You will…

  • Help customers all over the world be safe from drones by developing and deploying sensor fusion technology.
  • Work in a team setting to develop, evaluate, and implement distributed tracking and fusion algorithms.
  • Use your C++ expertise to develop high-performance data fusion algorithms for target tracking.
