About the team:

You will join a team of 5 people working on high-end integrated system diagnostics with model-based reasoning algorithms, real-time distributed system management solutions, remote maintenance, user centered graphical interfaces and many more tasks.

How we imagine you:

  • You graduated with a Master of Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Algorithms Engineering, Computer Science or any related field
  • You have technical skills and enjoy teamwork
  • You want to solve complex problems and be plunged into a challenging environment
  • You have proven dedication and willingness towards continuous improvement and learning new skills and technology
  • You are seen as a value proposition on crucial and sensitive programs
  • You are a self-starter, with an ability to manage your own workload and meet your agreed objectives, whilst also contributing to the development and delivery of wider operational goals
  • You want to follow the latest advanced tools and the latest trends of the algorithm discipline

Core competencies and knowledge:

  • You have knowledge of Algorithm design
  • You have a deep understanding of foundational concepts in mathematics/ physics/ science
  • You are able to analyse in a critical and constructive way systems/equipment needs in order to determine potential issues and build specification documents
  • You possess high level of systems analysis and applied mathematics/statistics science
  • You master programming and scripting languages (e.g. Python)
  • You have the ability to implement and optimise algorithms on a digital platform and evaluate/validate their efficiency
  • You are able to write the documentation or the evolutions of algorithms
  • You remain at the state of the art of your discipline (scientific papers…)

Nice to have:

  • Good understanding of model based reasoning algorithms
  • Different problem-solving methods
  • Knowledge of the technical domains concerned (AI, crypto, sensors...) and of the customer use cases
  • Knowledge of embedded platforms and/or systems
  • Solid experience in signal processing (such as image, video processing) and information processing (raw data or structured data, graph…)
  • Experience in design and programming embedded processing machines (Java, C++, Python languages)


As an Diagnostics developer within Thales, you will:

  • Work on Algorithm engineering either for Big Data Analytics, optimisation algos, crypto, decision aid algos, Information analytics & fusion algos, Image processing, Sensor processing algos (signal, video), or Waveform design and algos (radio, radar, sonar), problem complexity analysis; algorithm design; algorithm implementation on a targeted language and machine
  • Define the system capabilities thanks to a functional, logical and value analysis, describing functions to be performed to meet the real needs of the user in the various scenarii and maximising product value for Customer
  • Analyse critically and constructively the systems/equipment needs
  • Select and adapt algorithmic and/or IT solutions (like architectures, technologies…) to meet the demand
  • Prototype solutions in a realistic/representative context
  • Provide support to the validation teams
  • Ensure the smooth running of the project (like reporting, progress monitoring, customer interfaces…)
  • Embed solutions on different processing platforms
  • Test the algorithm in a real environment

What's in it for you

Future opportunities will allow you to discover other domains or sites. You will be able to evolve and grow your competences in different areas:

  • Room and attention to personal development
  • Build your talents in another domain of Thales Group, discovering new products, new customers, new country or go to a more complex Solution
