Senior R&D Software Engineer - Simulation Team

To meet an exciting, sustainable, and expanding future, we are seeking a Senior R&D Software Engineer for helping us to improve and develop the fishery and naval products of tomorrow.

You will be part of the Simulation Team, who designs, creates, and builds underwater sound propagation backend models able to simulate the whole company echosounder and sonar products portfolio. While the simulation is one our main tasks, we also work on other important and transversal product features related with underwater sonars and echosounders. We always try to correlate, improve and update the knowledge we get from both realms, bettering and incrementing both sides of our products.

Physics govern the nature… but we do our best to rule the code that best resembles it!

What we will do together 

You will play a crucial role in test-driving, iteratively and incrementally, the development of systems which best recreates the real behavior of Kongsberg Discovery underwater acoustics products when surrounded with different ocean environmental scenarios and its corresponding physics. Our simulator is a state-of-the-art solution which provides efficient ways for students and crew in carrying out safe and sustainable fishing and naval operations.

You will additionally work in close collaboration with multidisciplinary teams. We value not only producing features, but also keeping a sustainable and healthy environment.  It is vital for us to develop robust, scalable, easy to understand, change and evolve software solutions, following all the way from newly hatched ideas to finished market products. In this endeavor, we use Test-Driven Development whenever it’s possible and, when it is not feasible, we take care to test it thorough a trusty safety net with the best strategy we can find.
