Sr. Research Engineer

MAPSTED – Mississauga, ON

Full Time - Permanent

Company Information:

We are an innovative Canadian technology firm that provides the world's most accurate Indoor Location Technology. We also play a mean game of volleyball!

Unlike other indoor navigation platforms, our patented, award-winning, ground-breaking core localization technology does NOT require Wi-Fi, Cellular or Bluetooth (BLE) connections… and resides in the palm of your hand! It is easily deployed in challenging sites such as high-rise buildings or conversely, those dwelling below the surface... areas previously thought of as “dead zones".

We not only provide precise turn-by-turn navigation, we also provide platforms for both real-time, targeted, location-based Marketing and never-before-seen Analytics.

Required Background:

  • Master’s or Ph.D. in Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science or a related field (Ph.D. preferred)
  • Strong analytical, conceptual, innovative, and problem-solving abilities
  • Strong background in optimization theory
  • Strong background in probability theory
  • Must be capable of working in both a team-setting and independently
  • Foundation in advanced mathematics
  • Effective communicator (both orally and written)
  • Strong experience in computer programming (e.g., working with C#, C++, Java, or a similar language)
  • Prior experience with indoor positioning, localization, or navigation is an asset
  • Must be eager to learn and willing to contribute to both the “research” and the “development”

Required Skills (Expertise in some of the following):

  • Understanding of key indoor positioning technologies/techniques (e.g., dead reckoning, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Cellular/GPS)
  • Understanding of real-world data and the challenges thereof (i.e., not just computer simulations)
  • Must possess good coding practices and a good understanding of computational complexities

Beneficial Skills:

  • Innovative thinker with very strong problem solving
  • Experience with localization or positioning in an indoor or outdoor environment is an asset
  • Background in Signal Processing is an asset
  • Prior experience working with Bayesian filters is an asset (e.g., Kalman Filters, Particle Filters, HMMs)
