    • Where applicable, rapidly prototype multiple possible solutions, and interface with stakeholders to determine the most appropriate path forwards.
    • Design and implement GUI in WinForms and WPF
    • Interface with back-end designers to provide feedback on proposed APIs
    • Maintain and extend our current software products

    Required Skills / Experience:

    • As this position requires developing close working relationships with both technical and non-technical stakeholders, a solid command of both spoken and written English is absolutely mandatory.
    • Post-secondary degree in Software Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science or similar.
    • Substantial prior experience in desktop and/or embedded software development using one or more object-oriented languages (C#, Java, etc.), likely though some combination of education and industrial experience, with a demonstrated portfolio of successful software development projects

    Ideal Candidate Additional Characteristics

    • Experience developing for both Windows and Linux.
    • Knowledge of open-source and/or commercial software in machine vision and/or imaging and/or signal processing would be ideal, e.g., OpenCV, CUDA
    • Experience with the application of artificial intelligence and/or machine learning techniques to imaging and/or machine vision applications would be highly valuable
    • Experience with C++ and/or Python
    • Exposure to industrial automation and/or automated inspection systems, experience writing code to interface with hardware via standard protocols or vendor API’s.
