Robotics control engineer

EIVA is a hardware and software engineering company which provides solutions to the international maritime survey and construction industries. Our customers specialise in renewable energy, oil and gas exploration, seabed-to-surface construction and services and hydrographic surveys, just to mention a few. Our software, NaviSuite, supports navigation, as well as data acquisition, processing and analysis for a wide variety of vessel types. It is among the most utilised and high-end software in the industry, known for its versatility and efficiency.

We’re on the lookout for additional crew members to join our R&D team, which works tirelessly to give state-of-the-art marine robots new autonomous operation features. In our software, we use the latest research to keep up with our customers’ desire for speed, accuracy and autonomy in task execution.

Both as a control engineer and software developer, you can expect a range of exciting challenges due to the endless customer-designed hardware configurations and ever-changing survey tasks our software must support. The code you make ensures that the software does the hard work for our customers, so that they can successfully map oceans, discover forgotten mines, set up wind turbines at sea and much more.

You'll be working out of EIVA's offices in Stilling, Denmark – just one minute away from the E45, 15 minutes away from Aarhus by car, and easy to get to by bus.

  • Complete control motion stack (from PID to motion planning)
  • Robust model estimation
  • Mathematical optimisation
  • Behaviour planning
  • Software for surface and subsea positioning, manoeuvring and advanced 3D navigation
  • Automated testing and quality control

Please note that you must have experience with control theory or signal processing background through your education and/or previous positions.

As for the rest of subjects mentioned above, if you have experience with some or all of these disciplines, it will be considered an advantage. If you do not, it is important that you are motivated by a strong interest in working with these subjects.

You will be an integrated part of our development team of software and survey engineers, working closely with electronics and mechanical engineers in our R&D department. This includes taking part in and impacting our day-to-day agile and scrum-inspired development roadmap.

The ideal candidate has...

  • A background as a control engineer, holding a degree in Robotics Control, Computer Science, Software Engineering or similar
  • A strong control theory background
    • Linear systems
    • Non-linear systems
    • Discrete systems
  • Good knowledge of 3D geometry
    • Rigid body kinematic/dynamics
  • Strong mathematical skills, especially linear algebra is a plus
  • Experience with software development
    • Any language with OOP
    • C++, C#, or Java is a plus
  • Experience with drone control design is a huge plus
  • Experience with visual serving is a plus
  • Strong English skills, both written and verbal, are a must

We operate in a niche industry, so don’t worry if you’re new to the maritime world, we’ll equip you with the necessary introduction before you’re thrown into the coding waters.
