Etegent employs a talented and multi-disciplinary group of engineers with varying levels of education and experience in order to effectively deliver technology solutions that pragmatically solve the needs and challenges of our customers.

Etegent is seeking to add a research engineer to its engineering team to work in a team environment with Etegent teammates, customers and other researchers in the following areas:

  • Implementing efficient signal/image processing techniques including radar signal processing, electro-optical and infrared image processing.
  • Designing machine learning algorithms for signature exploitation. This includes traditional feature extraction and/or deep learning approaches.
  • Modeling machine learning system performance using regression, MCMC sampling, Bayesian networks and other probabilistic techniques


  • Implementing and understanding state-of-the-art techniques within the machine learning field.
  • Coordinate with teammates and users to define and write efficient, modular and well-documented software.

Minimum Qualifications


  • BS or MS in the fields of Computer Science, Computer or Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Math or Statistics
  • Proficiency with contemporary engineering/R&D computer tools.
  • Applicant must be eligible to receive a U.S. Security Clearance which at a minimum requires applicant to be a US Citizen. See: Executive Order 12968 indicates U.S. Citizenship requirement to obtain a security clearance.

Preferred Qualifications


  • Experience with signature modeling tools such as Xpatch, DIRSIG, and Blender.
  • Experience with remote sensing data products such as radar, HSI, LIDAR.
  • Experience with MATLAB, Python, Java, C/C++, and parallel processing.
  • Familiarity with AFRL and other DoD/IC programs.
  • Track record of maintaining successful relationships with a variety of R&D customers.
  • History of technical presentations and publications in relevant fields.
  • Existing security clearance.


The Candidate


More so than seeking a candidate with specific academic training and experience, Etegent seeks a special type of person; someone with an innate curiosity and passion for learning and understanding, tempered by a recognition of the pragmatic constraints inherent in developing real solutions to real problems. They are comfortable with abstract concepts and theory and can apply these to real-world problems. They conceive and implement fundamentally new approaches rather than just implement approaches gleaned from textbooks and technical papers. They are flexible and adaptable, having the desire and ability to learn new skills and theory in order to take on challenges outside their current realm of experience. We are seeking very sharp, capable, curious, well-rounded, adaptable people who can learn and grow as required to confront the challenges at hand. An engineer/scientist with a strong foundation in math and engineering/physics fundamentals, and a true interest in creating innovative, elegant capabilities to glean knowledge and understanding from large, diverse data sources in the DoD, IC and commercial fields will be a good fit for this position.

Salary may vary depending on qualifications of candidate.
