Computer Vision Software Engineer

Job ID 108322 Date posted 07/03/2019

L3Harris is dedicated to recruiting and developing diverse, high-performing talent who are passionate about what they do. Our employees are unified in a shared dedication to our customers’ mission and quest for professional growth. L3Harris provides an inclusive, engaging environment designed to empower employees and promote work-life success. Fundamental to our culture is an unwavering focus on values, dedication to our communities, and commitment to excellence in everything we do.

L3Harris Technologies is an agile global aerospace and defense technology innovator, delivering end-to-end solutions that meet customers’ mission-critical needs. The company provides advanced defense and commercial technologies across air, land, sea, space and cyber domains. L3Harris has approximately $17 billion in annual revenue, 50,000 employees and customers in more than 130 countries.

L3 ASV is seeking an experienced Computer Vision Software Engineer to develop our next generation vision system. Cameras come standard on most of our vessels, and we're interested in squeezing as much information out of them as possible despite the rough conditions often encountered at sea. You will join the team responsible for designing, implementing, testing, and maintaining the next iteration of our computer vision pipeline. You will use your understanding of computer vision and deep learning to implement segmentation, tracking, and classification from multiple video streams in real time. 
 You will research and implement algorithms to perform video stabilization and compression to deliver the optimal viewing experience for our human operators even in bandwidth-constrained environments. You will work together with our sensor-processing experts to fuse the data extracted from our cameras with the data from our other sensors to create an accurate model of the state of the world at all times. Your role will be extremely important since the work you do is both critical to the safety and efficiency of our vessel's autonomy as well as being one of the primary ways our operators monitor the state of the vessel. If this sounds like your kind of work, get in touch; we'd love to hear from you.
About L3 ASV:

L3 ASV is an exciting young technology growth company and operation of unmanned maritime vehicles and control systems. We operate in the Military, energy and research sectors and build innovative, technologically advanced products to solve difficult problems.
Our success is due to the people we employ � if you�re smart, adaptable, highly productive, a team player and relish the challenge that comes with solving difficult problems then L3 ASV  is for you.

Our software developers are a tightly knit group of extremely talented individuals. There's a pervasive desire to do things the right way, even when that takes longer than the easy way. If a developer is stuck or can't decide on the best way to do something, it's common for them to walk down the hall and get someone else's opinion. We practice a meritocracy here: the best idea is the one we use, whether it comes from the project lead or an intern. This means that every individual can have a significant impact on our product and ultimately the success of the company.
We are also firm believers in self-improvement and constant growth: that's why we have monthly "lunch-and-learn" gatherings where one developer on our team presents some topic that may be unfamiliar to the rest of us. Examples include an overview of machine learning, computer vision, or the latest C++ standards. We believe that maintaining a solid work/life balance is crucial to the well­being of our employees.
Furthermore, we understand the need for a flexible work schedule to deal with unexpected situations. Of course, we also provide all the standard perks�paid sick leave, vacation time, health benefits, and 401k matching.
Key Responsibilities:
  • Designing, implementing, and maintaining high-performance C++ code in a Linux environment
  • Using state-of-the-art computer vision and deep learning techniques to perform real-time segmentation, tracking, and classification
  • Real time video stabilization/motion correction�
  • Video compression in low bandwidth environments
  • Fusing data from multiple camera feeds into a consistent world model
  • Camera setup, integration, and calibration


This position requires use of information which is subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
  • Bachelor�s Degree in Computer Science or similar engineering degree
  • 2+ years of experience writing real-time computer vision algorithms 
  • A passion for solving challenging problems in the field of robotics
  • Computer science theory and practice, either through a suitable degree or sufficient experience
  • Familiarity with working in a Linux environment
  • Willingness to travel offshore or internationally to provide support, testing, and integration with hardware
  • Must be a US Citizen with the ability to obtain a US Secret Clearance
    **Our software stack includes software development in modern C++ on Red Hat-family Linux. We use Confluence and JIRA for project management, Mercurial for version control, Jenkins for continuous integration, and Review Board for code review. Experience with any of these tools is a plus.
