Job Description

About L3 ASV:

We are a fast paced, rapidly expanding, world leading company, specializing in the design, build 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.

L3 ASV is seeking a talented Software Engineer to help us build our autonomy platform. At L3 ASV, we provide a robust software product for monitoring and controlling our autonomous vessels. You will join the team building everything from high-level mission-planning software that runs remotely to the low-level control software running on board each of our boats. As a consequence, you will have the opportunity to work in a wide variety of fields from computer vision, to user experience design.

You will take ownership of the design, development, and integration of new features that improve the overall performance, utility, and reliability of our platform. Your contributions will be critical to the success and growth of the company. If this sounds like your kind of work, get in touch; we'd love to hear from 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:

* Writing high-performance C code in a Linux environment

* Using your knowledge of object-oriented design principles to design and implement new features

* Specification and documentation of software systems


This position requires use of information, which is subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

In addition, applicants should meet the following requirements:

* Bachelor's Degree in Software Engineering or related degree
* A passion for solving challenging problems in the field of robotics
* 2 years 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.
