3Shape develops and manufactures market-leading 3D scanners and software solutions for dentistry and audiology. Our products stand out in the market because of our continuous focus on delivering end-to-end solutions and because of their superior technology, a result of our heavy investment in Research & Development.

We are now looking for a new colleague to join our 3D reconstruction software team for our intraoral scanner TRIOS. We use cutting edge geometry processing, computer vision and deep learning to make a 3D model from small depth images, commonly known as a simultaneous localization and mapping system, SLAM.

We’re a strong team of developers, all with very strong academic backgrounds. Our development is at the forefront of state of the art, and we are as such involved in academic research, but at the same time we’re responsible for the software running at thousands of systems around the world. So, in short, we research, develop, implement, deploy, and maintain a state-of-the-art SLAM system – a system that is used daily by dentists worldwide to improve patient care.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a person who can help improving our current algorithms and data structures for 3D estimation and visualization, as well as develop new such algorithms taking 2.5D color images as input data. As an added challenge there is a real-time requirement to our system. We are therefore looking for a candidate with relevant experience in this or a related area, e.g., statistical estimation and model fitting, machine learning and AI (think broader than deep learning), and computational geometry and processing. As the team is responsible for the end-product, an ability for working with and developing our software solution is also a requirement.

Your competences

  • You have a Master’s degree or a PhD in Data Science, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field.
  • Knowledge of applied data fitting and statistics and/or related subjects.
  • Solid software development skills, preferably C# / C++.

As a person you’re open-minded, eager to contribute and learn, and focused on getting the right things done. You’re interested in making technology with real impact on people and have a mindset of continuous improvement and quality within software development.
