Senior Computer Vision Engineer

Our innovative vision pipelines form the backbone of the Pick-it product. We strongly believe that with the right balance between scientific rigour and a pragmatic mindset, we will continue to develop cutting-edge computer vision for the eyes of tomorrow’s robots. 

You will have great fun on the inside of our product where things are complex and challenging while on the outside our product has to keep its ease-of-use for our customers.  

As a Senior computer vision engineer, we expect from you:

  • A great drive to go beyond what is feasible today in terms of object recognition and localization.
  • To stay up to date of what our customers need and/or what technology is out there
  • To dive into our product and quickly identify the bottlenecks with the biggest impact
  • To define implementation plans by combining existing algorithms and (your own) new ideas.  
  • To bootstrap implementation of new algorithms and to perform critical evaluations of test results

You will be part of the development team and collaborate closely with the product and support team and you will be very well connected with all other experts in our company, but must also be capable to solve problems independently and display lots of creativity.  

The most important criteria for joining our vision team are:

  • A Master degree in (computer) engineering or a PhD in computer vision or robotics
  • Knowledge of C++/Python and comfortable working in a Linux environment
  • A ‘can-do’ mentality to solve any development challenge;
  • The ability to come up to speed in new areas quickly;
  • Comfortable with joining in on a passionate technical discussion and love working in teams
  • Above all: Fun to be around.

We prefer candidates which have experience with PCL and/or openCV but will also train you to fill in the missing gaps. Experience with deep learning is definitely a plus but not a must.

What do we offer

  • A full time employment contract, with 12 additional holidays on top of the 20 legal holidays.
  • A competitive salary completed with a package of extra-legal benefits such as meal and eco vouchers, health insurance and group insurance.
  • On-site cafeteria with sandwiches, cold buffet and hot meals.
  • A nice place in our new office in Leuven. Leuven is known for its cultural heritage, universities and student life. Located 20 km from Brussels from which you can travel to a lot of major European cities within less than an hour.
  • But most of all … A fun, young and dynamic environment where we make it our mission to get the best out of every employee.  

Our FLOW-values guide us in doing so: Flexibility - Learning - Open communication - Working together
