Junior Imaging Lab Specialist
Montreal, Quebec, CanadaOptics
We are looking for a recent CEGEP graduate to join our team to help test and improve our 3D imaging technology. If you are a maker, have a keen interest in optics, computer vision, and cool technology, you should be very excited about this opportunity. As a Junior Imaging Lab Specialist, you will be heavily involved in the testing, analysis, and continuous improvement of our DepthIQ™ powered 3D sensors in the optics lab at our Montreal office. This is a unique opportunity to join an established start-up doing ground-breaking work in single-sensor 3D depth.
Who are we and what do we do?
We have a passion for developing solutions at the intersection of 2D imaging and depth. AIRY3D has developed DepthIQ, a 3D computer vision platform that consists of a Transmissive Diffraction Mask and computational imaging software that can give any CMOS image sensor the ability to provide depth information.
What will you do?
- Perform image and depth quality testing in our state-of-the-art optics lab
- Analyze depth images to strengthen the understanding of our hardware and software
- Design and construct testing systems and devices
- Benchmark testing protocols
- Automate control of lab equipment to streamline repeated measurements
- Build new and unique demos ranging from face anti-spoofing to object dimensioning
What do you need to have?
- College (DEC/DCS) degree in physical science or engineering
- Hands-on experience using optical components and instruments
- Theoretical knowledge of fundamental optical principles
- Programming skills (Python preferred)
- Ability to work on site in our Montreal office
- Proficiency in general mechanical and electronics assembly/design
- Familiarity with CAD / 3D printer / Arduino
- Interest in photography
- Cool side projects!
What’s it like working in our team?
We believe in creating disruptive technology in a workplace with great work ethics. We truly enjoy what we are doing and the diversity of those we work with, all while having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously! We offer health insurance, stock options, a flexible schedule, and vibrant Mile End location. This position requires extensive use of the specialty equipment available in our optics lab. However, some work from home is possible when analysis of acquired data is needed.
