How do you make an impact as a Vision Engineer?

This is how you are going to help Ellips and customers


You will work together as a team on the world’s most advanced optical grading technology and AI software that helps fruit and vegetable growers and packers worldwide with fast and accurate grading. We are using high-tech cameras to capture each fruit or vegetable with up to 90 images. We can see tiny details that no one else can see. With light transmission technology, we can even see through the product. This enables us to assess the inside, the internal quality of the fruit.



What are you going to do?

From day 1, you will be working in an open, informal and innovative environment where fresh perspectives are always welcome. You will continuously face new challenges and no day will be the same.


Work activities as a Computer Vision & Deep Learning Engineer:

  • You will work on algorithms that quickly and accurately determine fruit properties such as colour, weight, size, shelf-life, sweetness, external and internal quality, among others.
  • You will develop algorithms that can process and classify information at lightning speed. This enables growers and packers to process as much produce as fast as possible.
  • You will step into the middle of a transformation where we are going to extend our conventional vision algorithms (aka traditional image processing) with advanced deep learning algorithms. We choose the method that produces the best results.



What will you learn?

At Ellips we are constantly innovating to bring the next level of grading technology to our clients. Even faster and even more accurate. We push boundaries. That means there is room for new insights and flexibility in work activities. You will work on multiple projects, in close collaboration with other teams. You will continuously develop yourself. You will be challenged and no day will be the same.

Together as a whole we have extensive knowledge of:

  • IT, software and databases
  • Optics: cameras, lighting and filters
  • Vision algorithms: defect detection, grading software and optimisation of grading accuracy
  • Mechanics, Electronics and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
  • Fruit and vegetable produce knowledge: seasonality/varieties/shapes and sizes, etc.




Who are you?

We want to get to know Computer Vision & Deep Learning Engineers who, like us, appreciate openness and respecting one another. The person we are looking for is proactive, strives for the best possible results and is hungry for innovation, variety and challenges. We believe that every addition to our team brings new talents and insights. Together we will achieve a better result.

What else is important?

  • Completed relevant university-level education;
  • Programming experience in Lua and/or Python;
  • At least three years of experience with computer vision and deep learning technology;
  • Likes to move quickly and wants to take the overall process into consideration;
  • You prefer to work within an open-minded corporate culture and have a passion for your profession;
  • Critical perspective and strong analytical skills;
  • Oral and written English language skills;
  • Experience with OpenCV, Datascience or Machine Learning is a plus;
  • Recent programming experience in C++ is a plus;However, we don’t live in a perfect world. Should you meet some of the criteria and be motivated, please apply as well.
