Exafore is a privately owned Finnish software company specializing in location technology solutions and services. What makes us unique is that we have lots of different customer projects, but we are also developing Exafore Horizon, our indoor positioning system product. Our services range from extending existing systems to greenfield development but our work is always related to positioning technologies or embedded systems.
The company was established in 2015 and today we have a growing multinational team of 30 Exaforeans. If you want to be part of an enthusiastic team that builds high quality state-of-the-art software for GNSS receivers and other systems, we are the one for you!
We are looking for an experienced SENIOR/PRINCIPAL GNSS SPECIALIST with DSP specialty to join our team in Finland by the end of this year.
Our office is located in Tampere. You can also work mainly remotely, if you live in Finland and are able to visit our office occasionally. We will evaluate relocation possibilities separately with every person.
YOUR ROLE IN OUR GNSS PROJECTS
Currently we have almost 20 location technology professionals working in two customer projects related to GNSS receiver development. One of the projects is focused on GNSS receiver development for IoT applications while the other is about L5 GNSS receiver development. Both projects run in a close cooperation with our customers’ R&D teams. Our team acts as their outsourced technology partner in GNSS algorithm development (Measurement Engine and Position Engine), software development and occasionally testing too. We have had different radiolocation projects over the years, but our greatest specialty lies in end-to-end development of complete commercial GNSS receivers.
Your Exafore journey will probably start in our new GNSS receiver development project which is targeted to ramp-up during second half of 2022. In this project we will design and implement a new GNSS SoC (System-on-Chip) software together with our customer’s R&D team. As a Senior/Principal GNSS Specialist you will have a key role in the measurement layer development of the GNSS SoC SW. Your role includes design, implementation and optimization tasks related to advanced acquisition, tracking and data decoding methods. You will use Matlab/Python/C for designing GNSS DSP algorithms and C language for implementing those to the product. Therefore, it is very beneficial if you have earlier experience in modern software development practices and programming with C language in an embedded real-time environment. However, it is more important that you have strong skills and experience in GNSS, especially in areas related to the measurement layer of GNSS and digital signal processing.
