About the role

We are looking for a talented System Design Engineer to expand our algorithm team, located in Copenhagen.  

Your main responsibilities as an Algorithm System Design engineer will be optical system analysis, design and modeling with the objective of relating system parameters to image properties and biometric performance. Hence, your work will include understanding, analyzing, modelling and documenting the characteristics of optical system components (e.g. camera sensors and lenses), as well as the design of image processing algorithms targeting improvement to overall system performance.  You will work in close collaboration with HW and SW teams.

As part of our team, you will join a significant R&D effort and play a key role in the development of biometric algorithms for current and future modalities, adapted to smartphones, wearables, smartcards, as well as other devices and business segments. The algorithm team is a central part of R&D and is characterized by a high level of professional competence, as well as an open, friendly and innovative work environment.

This is an excellent opportunity for accomplished algorithm professionals to be part of a dedicated and highly competent team of peers!

Who you are

The right candidates match the following profiles, with Master or Ph.D. level academic qualifications:

  • Optical system imaging: Deep understanding of optical physics, light propagation phenomena, digital imaging, lens characteristics and image sensor properties. Experience with modelling, estimation and digital mitigation of optical system impairments.
  • Image/signal processing, image analysis, computer vision: Knowledge of and experience with image analysis and processing, with proficiency in several of the following areas: image registration, pattern recognition, optimiza­tion, sensor control and impairment corrections, classification, regression, clustering, in addition to general competences in statistics, signal analysis, computational geometry or adjacent fields. You have an ability to perform system-level optimizations or in-depth algorithmic analyses, in order to identify trade-offs between effectiveness and efficiency, for example, in order to operate within a given computational budget.

Competences & Skills

  • You have industry experience in algorithm development, implementation, verification and optimization in a relevant field.
  • You have experience in system design and are motivated to work in cross-functional teams
  • You have experience with and understanding of optical imaging systems.
  • You have significant programming experience in C/C++, Python, and/or Matlab.
  • Experience with software development and software quality assurance processes are considered an advantage.
