Senior Embedded Vision Engineer

At Varjo we create hardware and software experiences to fulfill our vision of immersive computing. The mixed reality experiences we are creating will empower each of us to be more creative and more productive. We are offering you an exciting position where you can see into the future and play your part in shaping it. When we are done, computers will look nothing like what they do right now.

Job description

A device with eyes and sensors is useless without the capability to understand the meaning of that data in a similar manner as we humans do. Creating that capability for our devices is where you come to the picture.

As Embedded Computer Vision Developer, you will be joining our RnD team to deep dive into our ultra-modern, deeply integrated SoC of future VR products. Your mission is to release its full potential for us to implement real-time end-to-end image processing pipelines needed to drive unique Virtual and Mixed Reality experiences.

You will work with low-level embedded software on C/C++, optimize computer vision and sensor data fusion routines. To succeed in this job, you need the attitude of an explorer, experience of ARM, to be familiar with classical computer vision algorithms as well as optimized libraries of computer vision kernels, e.g. OpenCV, OpenVX or ACL. You know how to deploy and port desktop computer vision solutions to embedded systems, how to optimize it and gradually improve overall performance. Our solutions run on embedded Linux.

This is a full-time position located in Helsinki, Finland. Commuting from other cities in Finland is a possibility we can discuss and support. We are also open to discuss fully remote working.

If you're based somewhere else at the moment, we will also gladly help with relocating to Finland and make your move to the capital of the world's happiest and cleanest country as easy as possible.
