R&D Engineer (Systems)

Full Time
Sensmetry is seeking a talented individual for the role of R&D Engineer (Systems). This is a position focused on the technical aspects of systems analysis, modelling and controls design for safety and mission-critical cyber-physical systems. The main domains of application include aerospace, land, and marine.
The candidate will contribute their systems engineering, modelling, and analytical skills to a range of R&D projects at Sensmetry, for both external consulting projects and internal product development. A genuine interest in systems and controls engineering, mathematical modelling, and autonomous systems is crucial for the candidate to continue to deepen the knowledge and expand their skillset in these areas. Moreover, the candidate will contribute on technical writing and communication, information and project organisation tasks.
Though the position is multi-disciplinary, requiring appropriate experience and flexibility on behalf of the candidate, it is understood that the candidate might wish to narrow focus and specialize more in one particular area of knowledge as the company continues to grow, develop, and diversify.
