L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc.
Description Open Water Power is a rapidly-developing division of L3 Technologies Sensor Systems. We are pioneering power systems for underwater applications using our novel aluminum-water chemistry. These power systems will revolutionize the deployment and utility of underwater vehicles and sensors.L3 Open Water Power is a small group (about 20 people) of talented and curious engineers, scientists, and technicians who are focused on bringing our power systems to market. We operate as an agile, exciting startup environment supported by the larger L3 organization. Our work involves full design and development, from fundamental science and chemical engineering up to manufacture and assembly of complete systems. We are looking for engaging, hands-on people to join our team. We focus on finding good teammates with strong work ethic, an ability to share knowledge, and an interest in creative problem solving. Job Summary:We have an immediate opening for a firmware engineer to join our rapidly growing EE team. This role will work closely with other firmware and electrical engineers to help bring our technology out of the lab and into the undersea world. While our aluminum-water chemistry is designed to replace relatively simple batteries, our power modules are much more complex and contain a variety of electrical systems including DC\/DC power conversion, embedded computing, motor control, mechanical actuation, high accuracy instrumentation, and autonomous capabilities. It\u2019s crucial that our electrical systems work flawlessly during every single discharge so that the full capability of this game-changing electrochemistry can be realized. This position will take part in the development of embedded firmware in a bare-metal environment for use in our power modules, with a special focus on autonomy and algorithms. Our power modules are designed to be integrated into UUVs and sent on multi-day missions, during which operators will have no communication with the module. As a result, our modules must be robust and fault tolerant. Because we\u2019re a hardware-centric organization, you should be comfortable working with standard EE equipment in a lab setting. Responsibilities: Author and implement embedded firmware for current and future OWP systems Design, test, and implement autonomous control functions (e.g. sequencing, subsystem triggering, error handling) for OWP power modules Work closely with firmware and electrical engineers to support board-level and system-level bring-up, testing, and debug Implement communication interfaces between OWP embedded systems and various undersea vehicles Qualifications Qualifications: Minimum of Bachelor Degree in EE\/CSE or equivalent Have 3 years experience working with embedded systems Expert knowledge of C Experience working on a bare-metal microprocessor system Confident designing, writing, testing and debugging low-level modular code Self-motivated and able to work independently Ability to read and interpret schematics and other hardware documentation Experience architecting and implementing Graphical User Interfaces in C# Experience using UML design methodology in an embedded environment Experience working with Enterprise Architect L-3 Open Water Power is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We encourage minorities, women, veterans and disabled individuals to apply. Any offer of employment is conditioned upon the successful completion of a background investigation and drug screen.US Security Clearance Required:None Schedule :Full-time Shift :Day - 1st Travel :No Organization :Business Development-20103301 Job Level :Individual Contributor
