You will use the data from your experiments to recommend design or operational improvements to hardware and software features and systems, always keeping the customer in mind. As an optical systems engineer, you will have a direct impact on introducing new imaging technology to the industrial inspection market.

The job

  • Work with an interdisciplinary team on a complex hardware-software problem
  • Disrupt the multi-billion dollar industrial inspection market
  • Define the standards for a totally new class of technology
  • Identify and test cameras and optical systems to optimize imaging performance
  • Develop imaging analysis and processing techniques to analyze the data you gather so you can continuously iterate and improve
  • Communicate your results to the rest of the team on a regular basis


  • Have an engineering background and are interested in hands-on testing with a variety of inspection hardware
  • Have experience planning and executing experiments to characterize R&D samples, commercial components and entire subsystems
  • Are well-versed in cameras and optics
  • Enjoy following, improving, and documenting processes and procedures
  • Are excited about integrating novel technologies into existing hardware
  • Enjoy collaborating within and across teams
  • Can handle large data sets  with scientific computing in MATLAB, Python, C++, etc

Bonus points for

  • Experience working in manufacturing, industrial inspection, or medical imaging
  • A portfolio of your work you can share
