Facilities Security Officer

What We Do

Integer Technologies is an applied research and product development company founded by scientists and engineers with a passion for technology and national security. Our core portfolio of research includes projects in power & energy systems, unmanned systems (with an emphasis on maritime systems), digital engineering, and advanced manufacturing. We are hardware and software developers with experience turning research into impactful products for military and commercial applications. We are a startup founded for the purpose of putting research into action. Our mission is to create a safer world by translating scientific discoveries into reliable products that address urgent national security needs… at the speed of relevance. We are hiring for an immediate opening for a Senior Computer Vision Engineer to perform R&D on next generation unmanned and autonomous systems and technologies for the Department of Defense and other U.S. Government agencies.

Integer’s unmanned systems portfolio includes work on critical enabling technologies for more reliable, more intelligent, and longer-duration unmanned and autonomous systems. We are actively developing a new perception system for maritime vehicles that automatically detects objects on and just below the surface of the water, day or night, and in most weather conditions, by fusing sensor data from multi-spectral cameras and radar using reliable and validated artificial intelligence algorithms. We are looking for a Senior Computer Vision Engineer to help us prototype the most advanced perception system available for maritime environments. You will have the opportunity to engage the full life cycle of development, from cutting-edge algorithms for object detection and scene understanding to deploying prototype perception systems on commercial and military vehicles.
