What you will do

We are looking for an expert in productizing cameras and optical systems, with a strong technical background in both prototyping and manufacturing. Each system includes multiple components, from electronics (camera boards, image sensors) to opto-mechanics (lenses, shutter, piezo-electric components) and all those must be fully integrated including mechanics and software. You will build working prototypes from which you will define and execute the path towards a product: evaluate and select sub-components, qualify suppliers, plan manufacturing & testing with subcontractors and suppliers. You will work alongside our application engineers, optical designers, materials & processing experts and software engineers towards the full imaging product, while ensuring system requirements are met.
Your responsibilities will include:

  • Build new camera prototypes in a goal oriented way,
