Job Description

Long term full time contract role onsite at FLIR Systems in Wilsonville, Oregon.

REPORTS TO: Technical Director - Software


We are seeking a Software Engineer to join our multidisciplinary team responsible for developing next generation multi-spectral (infrared, low light and visible light) imaging systems. At FLIR, we continually strive to provide our customers with a Mission-Critical Advantage by applying leading edge technology to every product that we design. Candidates must be self-motivated, able to work independently on complex systems and collaborate in a fast paced, dynamic environment.


BS in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or applicable technical field. A minimum of 5 years of relevant software engineering experience is required.

The successful candidate will have a proven record that demonstrates the ability to design and implement complex software subsystems. This experience should include all phases of the software development life cycle, from product inception, through design, implementation, new product introduction and support.

Complete command of the C/C++ programming language is required. Exposure to object-oriented design methods and concepts is required. Familiarity with the related software development, configuration management and bug tracking tools is assumed.

The ability to design and implement real-time, embedded, software systems, using asymmetric multiprocessing techniques, in a multithreaded environment, is desirable. Exposure to commercial, real-time operating systems (e.g. VxWorks, ThreadX, MQX, FreeRTOS, etc.) and Linux is also desirable. Familiarity with the Qt Application Framework is a plus.

Candidates with specific experience and skills in the following areas are preferred:

Design and implementation of advanced, real-time, image processing algorithms that execute on state of the art vision processors, employing multiple VLIW cores and a variety of hardware accelerators. For example, point functions, convolution filters, color correction, dead pixel replacement, detail enhancement, image scaling, image warping, super-resolution, Gaussian noise reduction, impulse noise reduction, computer vision and/or video analytics.

Implementation of convolutional neural networks as applied to object detection, recognition, and identification; or to video or image processing, particularly in a real-time environment.

Experience implementing complex serial and packetized protocols on Ethernet, MS1553, ARINC, CAN, and/or serial connections, such as TCP/IP, RTP, NMEA, ISA, or JSON.

Experience with 3D graphics rendering engines, especially in the area of augmented reality.

Experience with real-time video streaming, including hardware-accelerated compression, transport, MISB metadata management, multicast, and quality of service management.
