When joining us, you will become a part of a friendly, diverse and skilled team where we encourage each other to collaborate, come up with new ideas, share experiences and have fun.

About the role

We are looking for a talented Algorithm development engineer to expand our algorithm team, located in Copenhagen. We are specifically seeking to strengthen our development efforts within optical image sensor systems for mobile devices.

Your main responsibilities as an Algorithm development engineer for digital imaging systems will include optical system analysis and modelling, and design and implementation of image processing algorithms tailored to the system properties in order to achieve optimal performance. In addition to biometric performance, other key metrics guiding your work will be implementation complexity and architecture flexibility. 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 profile, with Master or Ph.D. level academic qualifications:

• Digital imaging (camera systems): 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 limitations and 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.
