Careers: Digital Signals Processing engineer

We are looking a for graduate and experienced Digital Signals Processing Engineer to join our growing space team in the Leicester (UK) or Luxembourg region. Remote work is supported from anywhere in the UK, Luxembourg, France, Belgium, and Germany.

Kleos delivers Radio Frequency (RF) Reconnaissance Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) from a fleet of satellites in low earth orbit. Kleos’ proprietary signal processing algorithms transform raw RF collections from this constellation into products that our customers can use to solve real problems on Earth.

Kleos is seeking a Digital Signals Processing Engineer to support analysis of RF data used to generate the Reconnaissance DaaS product range. This role will contribute to the design, modelling, analysis, optimising, and testing of all aspects applicable to signal processing and will involve processing of signals captured from the spacecraft constellation allowing passive geolocation. This includes design of signal processing algorithms, contribution to technical requirement specifications pertinent to signal processing systems for on orbit and terrestrial applications, design, and performance of analysis of digital signal processing algorithms for passive geolocation of RF signals and research and develop novel signal processing approaches.

Ideal candidates will be team orientated and have strong communication skills. Also desirable is experience tackling large, challenging projects, and writing and reviewing technical documentation.

Required Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree and 4+ years or higher of relevant experience in computer science, physics, electronics, telecommunications, or other relevant engineering.
  • Mathematical Analysis (MATLAB).
  • Programming ability (MATLAB, Python, C, C++) on Linux.
  • Understanding of GNSS navigation principles.
  • Ability to interpret and analyse complex theoretical concepts.
  • Familiarity with passive geolocation techniques (TDOA, FDOA, AOA, etc).

Desired Experience:

  • GNSS signal processing.
  • Estimation and detection theory (Least Squares and Kalman Filtering).
  • Statistics and stochastic processes.
  • General knowledge of digital signal processing techniques.
  • Radar system experience.
  • Software development and testing.
  • General knowledge of numerical optimisation methods.
  • Working knowledge of key spacecraft bus components and/or flight software.
  • Analog/digital communications (modulation/demodulation methods), antenna theory, and atmospheric propagation effects characterisation.
