Data Scientist/Engineer

Sequoia Research Corporation - Torrance, CA

We are hiring at Sequoia Research Corporation! We are a small aerospace engineering company in the Los Angeles, South Bay Area, that has been in business for over 50 years. The problems we solve address important challenges in vehicle navigation and aircraft safety as well as fundamental space weather research. We take pride in the difficulty of the problems assigned to us by our customers, as they are often challenging to frame, let alone solve. In the past, we have designed and prototyped automated algorithmic analysis and integrity monitoring for the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), constructed the integrity architecture for a Ground Based Augmentation System (GBAS) and written papers on ionospheric threats and the modelling thereof.

We are particularly looking for someone with strong MatLab skills, as this will be about 50% of the job.

We are actively recruiting engineers with an interest in applying math and physics in a computational setting. We use Python, MatLab, C/C++, and some FORTRAN to develop algorithms, perform simulations, and analyze interesting data sets. The candidate should have strong analytical skills, be able to program, and must be a US citizen. We have found that people with an educational background in physics, chemistry, mathematics or engineering enjoy and thrive on our work. Our problems are uniquely challenging and require a diverse skillset. We are looking for all levels of education: Masters, Ph.D., as well as people with years of experience in their respective fields (with Bachelors).

Responsibilities and Duties

  • Performing computer simulations with in-house satellite navigation software.
  • Developing analysis tools in Python and MatLab.
  • Developing and testing algorithms that enhance performance and integrity solutions.

  • Presenting various findings to academic/industry colleagues and government sponsors.

Qualifications and Skills

  • Must be a U.S. citizen.
  • Bachelors with 1 year experience.
  • Master's in a quantitative discipline such as math, physics, chemistry, engineering, or computer science.
  • Experience in a compiled language such as C or FORTRAN or a high-level interpreted language such as Python, MatLab, or Mathematica.

Nice-to-have qualifications:

  • Experience in a computational discipline such as computational physics, computational chemistry, engineering, or computer science.
  • 5+ years of experience using Linux.
  • 5+ years of experience with computer simulations, broadly defined.
  • 5+ years developing software and analysis tools adhering to software engineering best practices.
  • Hands-on experience with large data sets in a variety of formats.

Benefits

  • Flexible work schedule with 3 weeks paid time off in addition to 9 federal holidays.
  • Competitive compensation with generous retirement plan, medical, dental, and vision.
