As a spin-off of Ghent University, Pozyx takes its research very serieus. As an embedded R&D engineer, you will join a team of Pozyx PhD engineers for the development and improvement of its indoor positioning system. This includes developing low-level wireless protocols, fusing multiple sensor streams and designing new estimation algorithms all-together. The focus of this role is on the intelligence that lives on the hardware and as such, part of the job is the actual algorithm implementations in firmware where you will work closely with the (embedded) hardware team.


You will relentlessly strive in improving the state-of-the art in indoor positioning performance for a number of relevant applications with large-scale adoption such as high-speed vehicle tracking, drone tracking or even animal tracking.


Key responsibilities


  • You are responsible for designing new protocols and algorithms.

  • You will implement new algorithms and protocols in firmware. 

  • Test and validate the performance of algorithms, both through simulations and in the field.

  • You will work on (international) projects both for customers or together with the university.

  • You will keep track of the relevant research literature for novelties.


Profile we are looking for


  • Master of Science in electrical engineering or similar.

  • PhD research or similar experience in positioning, Bayesian estimation, machine learning or wireless networks.

  • Proficient in Python (or Matlab) for algorithm design and fine-tuning.

  • Proficient in C/C++ for the embedded digital signal processing (implementations on ARM cortex M4 or similar). 

  • You are both analytical and creative, relentless in the search for new advancements and IP.

  • Experience with motion sensors is a plus.
