• Cincinnati, OH, USA
  • Full Time

Competitive salary, medical/dental/vision plan, matching 401(k) and more.

Etegent Technologies is a rapidly growing, aerospace and defense technology company with facilities in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio. We are a multi-disciplinary mix of engineers, scientists and computer science professionals with a passion for developing and commercializing technology solutions that address our customer's most significant challenges and opportunities; we strive to change the way people think and work.

The Position

Etegent is seeking Machine Learning Research Engineers to work in a team environment with Etegent teammates, customers and other researchers.

We partner with leading academic institutions, government organizations and commercial entities, to form world-class teams. We design and implement solutions using signal and image processing, statistical pattern recognition, deep learning including "low shot" or "rare object" techniques and signature simulation. We apply these technologies to a variety of sensed data (SAR, ISAR, GMTI, HIS, LIDAR, EO, PIR) that is often in the form of massive, diverse sets. Our solutions often require real-time exploitation of large-frame/high frame rate data on GPU arrays and other optimized, integrated algorithm/software/hardware systems.

Activities and Responsibilities

  • Implementing efficient signal/image processing techniques including radar signal processing, electro-optical and infrared image processing.
  • Understanding, designing and implementing state-of-the art machine learning techniques for signature exploitation. This includes traditional feature extraction and/or deep learning approaches.
  • Modeling machine learning system performance using regression, MCMC sampling, Bayesian networks and other probabilistic techniques.
  • Coordinating with teammates and users to instantiate research concepts in efficient, modular and well-documented software.
  • Assist or lead in writing proposals and general business capture activities.
  • Planning and leading execution of research projects, leveraging the capabilities of other Etegent researchers and partners.
  • Assist in monitoring and directing project schedules, resources and costs.

Working at Etegent 

At Etegent, you'll be a part of a fast-growing organization that combines a small-company family feel with big-company resources and opportunities. We work hard, but we also want you to play hard. Which is why in addition to your competitive salary, medical/dental/vision plan and matching 401(k), you'll enjoy the following perks:

  • Flexibility:  Not a morning person? No problem. We only ask that you begin your day by 10:00am.
  • Casual Dress:  Don't be fooled by the casual clothes and laid-back atmosphere. We're changing the world around here!
  • Professional Development: Continuous learning on us. Reimbursement provided for up to 100% of qualifying education expenses.
  • Food:  Keep your energy levels up with our well-supplied snack and beverage kitchen, and enjoy a weekly lunch with your talented colleagues on Free Lunch Fridays.
  • Location:  Our offices are centrally located in Cincinnati and Dayton, OH. Both offices are a short commute from multiple desirable suburban communities and vibrant urban living and entertainment districts.

Minimum Qualifications

  • MS+5 years experience or PHD in the fields of Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Applied Math or Statistics.
  • Proficiency with contemporary engineering/R&D computer tools.
  • Applicant must be eligible to receive a U.S. Security Clearance which at a minimum requires applicant to be a US Citizen. See: Executive Order 12968 indicates U.S. Citizenship requirement to obtain a security clearance.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with machine learning frameworks
  • Experience with signature modeling tools such as Xpatch, DIRSIG, and Blender.
  • Experience with remote sensing data products such as radar, HSI, LIDAR.
  • Experience with MATLAB, Python, Java, C/C++, CUDA, or parallel processing.
  • Familiarity with AFRL and other DoD/IC programs.
  • Track record of maintaining successful relationships and developing business with a variety of R&D customers.
  • History of technical presentations and publications in relevant fields.
  • Existing security clearance.

The Candidate

More so than seeking candidates with specific academic training and experience, Etegent seeks a special type of person; someone with an innate curiosity and passion for learning and understanding, tempered by a recognition of the pragmatic constraints inherent in developing real solutions to real problems. They are comfortable with abstract concepts and theory and can apply these to real-world problems. They conceive and implement fundamentally new approaches rather than just implement approaches gleaned from textbooks and technical papers. They are flexible and adaptable, having the desire and ability to learn new skills and theory in order to take on challenges outside their current realm of experience.

We are seeking very sharp, capable, curious, well-rounded, adaptable people who can learn and grow as required to confront the challenges at hand. An engineer/scientist with a strong foundation in math and engineering/physics fundamentals, and a true interest in creating innovative, elegant capabilities to glean knowledge and understanding from large, diverse data sources in the DoD, IC and commercial fields will be a good fit for this position. 

Travel Required:  Minimal

Clearance Required:  SECRET

Competitive compensation based on qualifications and experience of candidate.

Etegent Technologies is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status or disability.
