Job description
Location: Offices in Cambridge & Bristol (hybrid working)

Hours of work: 40 hours per week

Length: Full-time / Permanent

Job Reference: FPP/ MLE2

Salary: £40,000-£60,000

The Opportunity:

We are looking for a Machine Learning Engineer/ Data Scientist who is excited by complexity and diversity, and who is keen to build this into the next generation of navigation algorithms. You will join our Machine Learning and Data Science team, where you will drive development of a pedestrian motion database and help generate machine learning (ML) models. Successful models must account for the diversity of pedestrian motion in the general population, and creation relies upon combining the skills of domain experts in traditional pedestrian navigation methods and modern data-driven machine-learning techniques. You will therefore have the opportunity to work closely with engineers from across the business to deliver integrated solutions.

Key Responsibilities
  • Take technical ownership (under the supervision of senior/ principal scientists) of the machine learning motion database
  • Undertake research work, developing predictive motion models to understand important pedestrian behaviours.
  • Work on individual and team projects with guidance from senior engineers
  • Regular reporting on the progress of R&D projects
  • Collaborate with project management to design a data collection plan
  • Work closely with data collectors to ensure a robust and easy to use data labelling system. Job requirements

      • Experience mentoring graduates
      • Experience in motion context recognition or pedestrian dead reckoning
      • Knowledge of signal processing and navigation methods
      • Knowledge of modern smart-device scripting/ programming languages (e.g. Swift/ Dart)
      • Stack: git, bash/ zsh/ other, Python ML framework (tensorflow/ Pytorch/ other), MATLAB, C++, Python C API

        Your Development and Perks

            Our vision is to improve every positioning solution

            We believe that GNSS is one of the marvels of the modern world. Over a trillion dollars of the US economy and over 800 billion euros of the European economy currently depends on this incredible positioning and timing system. However, the sensitivity and accuracy of current receivers fail the levels of performance 21st century businesses and individuals demand. Our revolutionary technologies transform the capability of all GNSS systems worldwide.
