Join TrustPoint and Build the World’s First Commercial GPS System in Space
GPS is a ubiquitous global utility in modern society; knowing one’s location is critical for government, commercial, and personal applications. Still, today’s solutions for determining location are inaccurate, slow, unencrypted, and susceptible to jamming and spoofing. These shortcomings make GPS insufficient for tomorrow’s safety-critical and high-precision applications, a problem TrustPoint intends to solve.
TrustPoint is developing a fully commercial next-generation GPS service to provide significant performance, security and reliability improvements for GPS users. This includes better accuracy, quicker Time to First Fix, and anti-spoof and anti-jam capabilities. The improvements will support US Government position and timing service resiliency as well as enable next-generation commercial applications like drone delivery, self-driving cars, urban air mobility, and augmented reality. The $55B annual GNSS Receiver market is ripe for disruption and TrustPoint intends to lead that revolution with our commercial infrastructure and services.
With locations outside Washington DC and in Silicon Valley, TrustPoint is currently seeking a Full Time Software Engineer to join the team and help develop the embedded systems needed for our commercial Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Our system consists of a constellation of satellites and a network of ground stations and as the Software Engineer, you will be responsible for designing, developing and implementing innovative embedded software solutions in support of both space and ground assets. You will work directly for program and project managers in support of software development and testing across all aspects of our system. You will also research and advise on the state of industry's software best practices, tools, and products in support of company software strategy. As an early hire, significant upward mobility will be available to this individual given strong performance, including manager and director level positions in the coming years.
