Loctio a deep-tech newly established VC-backed startup steered by a fellowship of wireless & GNSS industry pioneers is looking for an enthusiastic, ambitious, and GNSS-savvy engineer.

Location: Vacancy could be partially or fully remote depending on the candidate’s profile and experience nevertheless applicants with residency in Athens-GR, Patras-GR or Barcelona-ES will gain extra points.

Role: This vacancy is an exciting opportunity for ambitious, self-motivated and independent GNSS talented engineers to be indispensable members of a startup in the making. Join us in our mission to disrupt the positioning estimation technologies by taking on one of the most intriguing domains – the Navigation part. You will be working side-by-side with a team of subject-matter experts and reporting directly to the PM in a horizontally fashioned organogram.

We Offer: A very competitive salary alongside perks – all of them adjusted according the seniority of the candidate and his/her profile-position fit.

What you will do

You will work in a dynamic team of software, hardware, and GNSS engineers and you will contribute on our innovatibe positioning services participating actively in

  • Research and development of optimized algorithms for processing GNSS observables
  • Research and development on advanced functionalities for GNSS receivers, such as anti-spoofing and multi-antenna algorithms, and on positioning with other wireless technologies
  • Research and development on multi-constellation GNSS positioning algorithms
  • Define, develop, test and document Matlab based models

Contribution Roadmap

In 2 weeks 

In 2 months 

From 4 months onward 

You will get an overview of the deployed technology and the observation-processing techniques.  You will be familiar with the innovative observation-processing algorithms the we use. It is likely that you will be up to speed and make your own suggestions for improving used algorithms or deploying new approaches.  You will be one of the main contributors on our next-generation advanced algorithms for solving navigation equations. 

As a subject matter expert, and despite having regular meetings, we expect some autonomy in your day-to-day work.
