Senior Computer Vision Engineer

Want to join a global development team in a fast-growing company?

Breakthrough innovation is Pickit’s DNA. We strongly believe that with the right balance between scientific rigor and a pragmatic mindset, we will continue to develop leading-edge computer vision for the eyes of tomorrow’s robots. While you will enjoy solving highly complex and challenging problems to design our core product, you’ll see we make every effort to keep its ease-of-use for our customers.

Roles & Responsibilities

  • You develop new leading-edge algorithms for using 3D vision.

  • You build easy-to-use configuration layers around the core algorithms.

  • You mentor junior engineers via pairing, design review, and code review.

  • Critical evaluation and testing of existing and new software.

  • You can work independently while being a team player with good reporting skills.

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

EU work permit: Applicants must possess a valid work permit that allows employment within the European Union.

You’re bringing us…
