Senior Software Engineer (Serverless API's)
Pivotal Commware develops 5G communications platforms, systems and applications based on Holographic Beam Forming® , a patented breakthrough in electromagnetic physics. HBF allows Pivotal to create software-defined antennas that can harness, shape and direct radio waves with order-of magnitude advantages over legacy beamforming systems in cost, size, weight and power consumption (C-SWaP). HBF enables mobile network operators to maximize capacity, coverage and throughput on demand and is recognized as an essential element in the 5G ecosystem. 5G leadership is pivotal to the US economy, and 5G is Pivotal™.
Pivotal’s Holographic Beamforming Antenna system is a customizable and very flexible solution enabling the newest 5G generation networks. This solution allows us to build a mesh network of devices, extending the millimeter wave coverage. IBMS (Intelligent Beam Management System) is the software on top of this network, enabling a self-organized radio layer, from configuration and monitoring to pattern detection (ML) and intelligent auto-optimization.
This position is within a team responsible for developing the framework in the Cloud (e.g. Azure, AWS, GCP Cloud Functions or similar), based on:
•Use of serverless functions
•Ensure secure interfaces between the devices, the hosting cloud and the end user interface
•Handle IoT devices for plug-and-play configuration, auto-monitoring and self-optimization
•Support demonstrations of the software to potential clients
The IBMS Sr Software Engineer position will work on multiple projects towards different clients in a fast-paced environment, working closely with the other parts of the business, such as the firmware team and the RF R&D.
