Thanks to MKD and other projects, our company is growing fast and we are looking for a skilled software developer. We currently have two big Software Projects that need to be developed in parallel.
One is the development of flightcontroller firmware. The software basis for this is the PX4 flight stack, running on pixhawk hardware. For this you will need to be familiar with C/C++ and embedded development. Your main responsibilities will be to integrate robot control and feedback systems as well as general customization of the software to our specific needs.
The second one is the ground station software with which the drones are controlled. Currently we are using QGroundControl for this, which is developed with the QT-Framework. Your job will be to customize the user interface to add controls and visualizations for the robots as well as adding/expanding additional functionality. Later we would like to be able to run the control software on all available platforms (phones, tablets, PCs), which should be possible with QTs cross-compilation features.
As these are rather big projects, we’ll probably have at least two people working together on this. Achieve project success by proactively communicating risks, known issues, and changelogs.
