Over de functie

The Software Scientist be part of a quality-driven team in the Image Acquisition and Detection Software group. The group develops acquisition, control, and data processing production software in a multi-disciplinary setup, across multiple international development sites.
You will be part of the data-processing team of approximately 5 engineers, working closely with system architects, and the various hardware and software teams.

The goal here is to analyse materials with his imaging technique. You will be responsible for maintaining improving and developing data analysis algorithms. You implement these algorithms into the software includig extensive sofware testing. The work requires understanding of the physics, hardware capabilities and the application software. 
Validation measurements have to be defined, preferable also performed. Resulting data has to be analyzed.
Interaction with system architects, system engineers and application scientists is required in order to push the boundaries of automated analysis.
We are looking for engineers eager to learn our hardware and the physics required to design the algorithms, and transform the algorithms into product quality code. 


The ideal candidate enjoys working in a multi-disciplinary technical environment to solve complex technical problems. The successful candidate will possess the following combination of education and experience:

  • Requires a MSc or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, or related technical discipline.
  • A strong background in mathematics and algorithmic development, from prototype to optimized code
  • 3+  years’ experience in development of high-performance algorithmic software, for (semi-) real-time devices
  • Preference for development experience in highly-integrated, high-performance systems used in semiconductor capital equipment or related industries. At a minimum, development experience with medium sized software applications.
  • Must demonstrate clear ability to develop effective integration software for complex, high-performance subsystems and components, in a multi-disciplinary environment.
  • Strong C++ skills, for productization of the algorithms (including C++11/14, SIMD and concurrent programming)
  • Knowledge of a scripting language such as Python or Matlab, for initial development
  • Good understanding of mathematics (linear algebra)  
Further preference given for hands on experience with one or more of the following areas:
  • Knowledge of particle physics is highly appreciated (electron behaviour)
  • Experience with the use of electron microscopes
  • Source control management (RTC, Git)
  • TDD, Unit testing
  • Experience with  COM, C++ and C# interoperability
Personal skills
  • Excellent interpersonal communications skills are required due to the high degree of interaction and collaboration
  • Strong analytical view combined with pragmatic attitude (flexibility)
  • Value orientation, getting to the essence, setting and acting according to priorities
  • Result orientation and showing initiative
