Description of VERTEX Demonstrator
Aim of Vertical & ERgonomic Transporter EXperience demonstrator is to simplify helicopter piloting through intelligent and cognitive technology with enhanced human-machine interfaces.
VERTEX will demonstrate that new advanced systems (composed of new Avionics, vision and radar technologies, simplified HMI) can lead to a drastic simplification of the training of the helicopter pilots thanks to a higher level of automation. This will open the way to more pilot's profiles
As UI/UX leader (m/f), you actively develop a new User Interface and especially a fresh and innovative User eXperience for helicopter piloting. You will be responsible to put alive a Synthetic vision display (SVS) and a head mounted display (HMD).
You must have an artistic spirit into a coder body ! Able to create the bridge between conceptual interface with hardware/software reality, you have the ability to step back to have a global vision but also to deep code to concretise these concepts.
You have a strong ability to both conceive and execute : from the documentation of the needs to the low level code of the embedded software.
You are the Main technical interface with the Airbus Helicopter Cockpit and Pilot team, but also and with the DISCO team in Toulouse.
Your participation in the creativity session is key to ensure the sprint set-up and filtering of orientations in regard to technical feasibility.
You are accountable of the technobrick(s) maturation up scaling and the formal assessment.
You are passionate and impatient about putting methods and processes in place to achieve your targets. You are the type of person who thinks about ?how things can be done? rather than ?if they can be done?.
You work collaboratively and with humility and are a constant learner about how to improve the performance.
A healthy dose of impatience with processes and bureaucracy, and willingness to move fast and take risks are essential attributes.
Your Boarding Pass:
Engineering degree in HMI with an innovation flavor
Handling of 3D maps
Software tools mastering : QT creator, Visual Studio, Blender, Inkscape, QGIS, Jenkins, Git, XCode
Knowledge of avionics and architecture, electronics and protocols, general computing and networks (UDP/TCP, Qt RPC, DISCO/DSS, VCOM), frameworks (OSGEarth/OSG, Qt), programming (C++/ C, OpenGL, GLSL, QML, XML) and database (GRIB2,GTOPO, ASTER, Geotiff, Spatialite)
Understanding and also hands on hardware : low level electronic, tablets (iOS & Surface)
Practical problem solving skills as well as autonomy and initiative will be expected
Negotiation level in English is required
This position will require some business travel to Marignane
You are an enterprising person, flexible and capable of adapting to changing environments. Able to self-manage in a non-hierarchical environment, understanding what the organization needs, acting and making decisions accordingly.
You are a hands-on person, solution oriented and communicative. You have negotiation skills.
