Embedded Software Developer - Space Applications (m/f) at Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V. (Bremen, Deutschland)

The Institute of Space Systems in Bremen designs and analyzes future spacecraft and space missions (launchers, orbital and exploration systems, and satellites), and assesses them with regard to their technical performance and cost. It applies state-of-the-art methods of multi-disciplinary engineering in system design and analysis – for example, a computerized system for concurrent design. The Guidance, Navigation and Control Systems Department focuses on the capability to analyze, design, develop, implement, simulate, test, and verify attitude and orbit control systems (AOCS) / guidance, navigation, and control (GNC) systems for space applications and their components. This involves a range of disciplines, including requirements management, systems engineering, algorithm development, software implementation, systems analysis/simulation/verification, and hardware-in-the-loop testing. The GNC Systems Department is also conducting research and development of promising and strategic technologies for AOCS and GNC systems.
The GNC Systems Department is involved into the Mission to the Moon of PTScientists, the first European Moon landing mission, as an official partner. The mission objective is to be the first private company to safely land a spacecraft on the Moon, to explore the area around the Apollo 17 landing site with two rovers, and to send pictures and videos down to Earth. In the frame of this project, the GNC Systems Department leads the development of the GNC subsystem as scientific partner. The work comprises the development of optical navigation technologies, the controller synthesis for descent and soft landing, the optimization of the landing trajectory as well as the comprehensive verification of all associated elements.

Within this context, we are looking for scientific staff members to conduct the following tasks within the GNC Appliances Research Group:

  • Programming of flight-critical and non-flight-critical software for embedded systems in C/C++

  • Implementation of algorithms in the domains of guidance, navigation, and control in software

  • Adaption of existing software to new hardware, operating systems, and frameworks

  • Run-time optimization of existing software and algorithms

  • Planning, creation, establishment, and auditing of quality assurance measures and tools for software development (bug tracking, internal programming standards, test strategies and frameworks, code analyses and reviews, etc.)

  • Test, validation, and verification of the developed software

  • Planning and drafting of software architectures for embedded systems

  • Department-internal consulting and coaching for software engineering

  • Support for the execution of Processor-in-the-Loop (PiL) and Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) tests of GNC systems

  • Production, technical review, and auditing of scientific and technical documentation

  • Documentation, presentation, and publication of results

  • Supervision of student internships, project and semester reports, and theses

  • Commitment to group activities such as maintenance and development of laboratories, development and improvement of procedures, knowledge management, or acquisition of external funding

This job ad looks for up to four students.

Your qualifications:

  • Successfully completed university degree on master's level or equivalent in the domain of embedded software engineering, aerospace/space computer science, computer engineering, or similar

  • Very good programming skills in C and C++ for safety-critical embedded systems

  • Excellent knowledge of the software development process for embedded systems (cross-compiling toolchains, debugging, profiling, etc.)

  • Profound knowledge of common hard- and software architectures of embedded systems and real-time operating systems (e.g. RTEMS, QNX, Rodos)

  • Experience with modelling software, e.g. using UML, as well as in-code documentation along the software development (e.g. with Doxygen)

  • Experience with using development tools like GitHub, GitLab, JIRA, Manits, Jenkins, etc.

  • profound knowledge about quality assurance measures and tools for software engineering

  • Professional utilization of Linux operating systems and version control systems (e.g. Git, Subversion)

  • Fluent in written and spoken English, ideally with work experience abroad

  • Conformance with the personal requirements for handling of export controlled goods and information according to German, European and American export control laws

  • Willingness to domestic and international travels on official business

  • Several years of professional experience with the development of embedded software with larger teams

  • Model-based software development/generation (e.g. using MATLAB/Simulink with MATLAB/Simulink Coder and Embedded Coder)

  • Application and tailoring of guidelines for software development (like MISRA-C/MISRA-C++, JPL C Coding Standard, CERT C++, etc.)

  • Static and dynamic software analysis methods

  • Hardware-oriented programming of software in Assembler, driver programming

  • Practical experience with writing scientific and technical documents with LaTeX

  • Scientific publications (articles in peer-reviewed journals, conference contributions, etc.)

  • Supervision of student seminar papers and theses

  • Mastery of written and spoken German is an advantage

  • Experience and successes with acquisition of external funding
