Join the most exciting and innovative tech company in the medical device industry and make a real impact for patients. With us, you will work on solutions used by thousands of dental professionals worldwide!

At 3Shape we work to improve treatment and diagnostics for dental patients. This is our purpose. We do this by providing innovative scanners and advanced software, tied together in collaborative workflows for the global community of dental professionals.

The TRIOS Treatment Simulator assists clinicians in engaging and exciting their patients for increased treatment acceptance, by quickly being able to simulate and show patients what their smile could look like after undergoing an orthodontic treatment.

For this project, 3Shape is looking for a skilled software developer for our R&D team in our Copenhagen headquarter.

The job

  • Develop and maintain novel algorithms for manipulating 3D models and computing a simulated treatment.
  • Build automated tests for existing and new code to ensure software quality.

In the team we use tools like Git, Jira, TeamCity, Jenkins, and Visual Studio with Resharper. The tech stack is C# on the .NET Framework 4.6.1 with WPF for the user interface, with plans to move to newer .NET versions.

We are a small development team that knows each other's strengths and supports each other. Although we are part of a larger program, we work as a project team with a project manager and scrum master and deliver solutions to the program that release products to market
