Job Description:
As part of the Hivemind Commander (HMC) team, you’ll play an active role in shaping and implementing our HMC Core Product. This HMC Core Product is a foundational, extensible set of services that enable both human operators (e.g. via command-and-control user interfaces) and third parties (e.g. to interoperate with wider networks) to interact with active Hivemind Edge (HME) autonomy systems and aircraft. You’ll collaborate cross-functionally with other Core Product engineers, Solutions engineers and new customers to develop robust interfaces and architectures that enable seamless integration with new systems and user interfaces. Ultimately, you’ll make it easier to improve the ability of our software to adapt to new systems, thereby enhancing the quality and reliability of our products to protect service members and civilians with AI systems.

  • Become deeply familiar with the entire HME System and its extension points.
  • Learn and extend well-known interoperability interfaces, allowing HME to seamlessly connect to legacy third party systems.
  • Implement robust APIs and middleware solutions to facilitate seamless interaction between existing and future HME Systems.
  • Implement comprehensive documentation and tutorials to onboard internal engineers and external clients quickly, providing clear instructions on how to use HMC core products to develop and deploy autonomy solutions effectively.
  • Integrate test and evaluation capabilities into continuous integration pipelines.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including robotics engineers, simulation specialists, and cloud architects, to ensure alignment with overall system goals and business objectives.
  • Work with teams of supremely talented software engineers who care deeply about the solutions they create.
