Job Description

As an Integrations Engineer at Dedrone, you will play a critical role in integrating our advanced technologies with existing infrastructure and systems to deliver seamless and effective airspace protection solutions. You will work closely with our engineering, product development, and customer support teams to ensure successful deployment and integration of our products in diverse operational environments. Additionally, as a Camera-Integrations Engineer, you will be responsible for writing an interface layer in C++ that adapts a camera's control and video interface into our DedroneTracker.AI software. This role entails writing multithreaded, object-oriented code that will be used to autonomously control high-performance long-range daylight and thermal cameras.

You will...

- System Integration: Lead the integration efforts of our airspace security solutions with existing infrastructure, including radar systems, surveillance cameras, command and control centers, and other relevant systems.

- Customization and Configuration: Customize and configure our products to meet the specific requirements and operational needs of our clients, ensuring optimal performance and functionality.

- API Development: Develop and maintain APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to facilitate seamless communication and data exchange between our products and third-party systems, enabling interoperability and integration.

- Camera Integration: Write an interface layer in C++ that adapts a camera's control and video interface into our DedroneTracker.AI software, ensuring the autonomous control of high-performance long-range daylight and thermal cameras.

- Testing and Validation: Conduct thorough testing and validation of integrated systems to ensure compatibility, reliability, and compliance with performance standards and customer specifications.

- Technical Support: Provide technical support to customers and internal teams during the integration process, troubleshooting issues, and resolving technical challenges in a timely manner.

- Documentation and Training: Create comprehensive documentation, including integration guides and training materials, to support customers and internal stakeholders in the deployment and use of integrated solutions.

- Continuous Improvement: Stay abreast of emerging technologies, industry trends, and customer feedback to identify opportunities for enhancements and optimizations in our integration processes and products.

You have...

- Bachelor's degree in computer science, engineering, or a related field (preferred).

- Proven experience in system integration, preferably in the aerospace, defense, or security industry.

- Extensive object-oriented and multithreaded C++ experience.

- Strong understanding of network protocols, data formats, and cybersecurity principles relevant to system integration.

- Knowledge of camera control and optics.

- Knowledge of control algorithms.

- Experience with hardware-level interfaces (SPI, I2C, UART).

- Excellent problem-solving and debugging skills.

- Experience with Linux.

- Experience with Git or other version control.

- Experience working on a scrum team.

- Ability to read and understand datasheets.

- Experience with video encoding standards (H.264, H.265, VP8, VP9, MJPEG, etc.).

- Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with cross-functional teams and communicate technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders.

- Familiarity with drone technology, airspace regulations, and security standards is a plus.

Nice to Have (in no particular order):

- Experience with camera control protocols (Pelco-D, Onvif, RCP+, RTSP, etc.).

- Experience with robotics.

- Knowledge of machine learning models.

- Familiarity with GitLab pipelines.

- Familiarity with computer-engineering-related concepts (endianness, IEEE 754, baud rate, etc.).

- Experience with Kubernetes.
