What you can expect from us

Our team designs and implements fully automatic 3D scanning solutions that deliver highest quality 3D geometry models and acquire optical material behavior of physical surfaces. We have a complex network of different scanners communicating with each other, and each scanning system itself consists of many software modules that are applied to different scanning systems. It is of highest importance on the software development side to reuse single modules as best as possible and implement generic interfaces. As our systems are constantly used by clients and we keep on improving our software, automation is vital in build systems as well as in testing systems to ensure each module is performing as intended, after each change on arbitrary levels.
This position will bring you closer to our state-of-the-art scanning systems, as you gradually delve into our software frameworks. Once you are familiar with the software framework, you are free to optimize and bring in your ideas to improve build and testing workflows step by step.
