How do you make an impact as a Junior Software 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. All the data is used to sort produce by colour, weight, size, shelf-life, sweetness, quality, among others.



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 create the user interface, communication protocols, APIs for external parties and real-time operating systems. There is also a lot of communication with other teams around clients and you are involved in the entire process. Usually, you work in pairs on a project so you will always have someone to spar with. We implement changes quickly and you will see immediately what has changed at the customers side.

Work activities as a software engineer:

  • Analysing requirements and creating alternative solutions.
  • Developing new features and testing them with customers to achieve the best results together. Alignment between the software and the sorting machines is essential.
  • Developing user-friendly interfaces and dashboards used by customers to monitor the quality, capacity and efficiency of their production process.


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 programs and optimization 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 would like to get to know Software Engineers who, like us, appreciate openness and respecting one another.
The person we are looking for is proactive, hungry for innovation, variety and challenge and strives for the best results. We believe that every addition to our team brings new talents and insights, and that we achieve a better result together.

What else is important?

  • Completed relevant college- or university-level education;
  • 0 to 3 years of experience programming in C++ and C#;
  • Quick to act taking the overall process into consideration;
  • You prefer to work within an open-minded corporate culture and have a passion for your profession;
  • Experience with WPF is a plus.

However, we don’t live in a perfect world. Therefore, should you meet several criteria and be highly motivated, please apply as well.


“What really appeals to me is the continuous innovation and new features we create for our customers. What we develop at Ellips is applied immediately and instantly improves the customer’s entire process.”
