With more than 800 patents and the largest team of industrial machine vision experts anywhere in the world, Cognex has set the standard for innovation in the machine vision industry. But our innovation goes beyond technology; we are also known for the creative programs we have designed to recognize and reward the employees whose efforts keep us at the top of our field. Our 'work hard, play hard, move fast' culture is challenging, stimulating and rewarding.

As we continue on our successful journey, we are looking to add more talented, innovative and dedicated engineers to our team. So, if you are someone who enjoys work because of the sense of accomplishment that it gives you, and if you want to be part of a high impact team working for a financially strong, global company that is the leader in the machine vision industry, then contact us, because working at Cognex is not just a job…. it's a passion!

The Team: Deep Learning Vision Technology

This team is responsible for designing and developing the most sophisticated Machine Vision software in the world. Our software is used to inspect, align, measure, and recognize all types of products from computer chips to chocolate chip cookies. Our AI Computer Vision systems are used in the production of over a billion products every day across many different industries including consumer goods, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, robotics and electronics.

Industrial machine vision technology is used to analyze imagery (intensity, color, density, Z-data, etc.): to detect, identify and localize objects, to make measurements, to inspect for defects, and to read encoded data. In many cases, products simply could not be made without Cognex's vision products. Technology development is critical to the overall business to expand areas of application, improve performance, discover new algorithms, and to make use of new hardware and processing power. Development is primarily done in C and C++. Engineers in this group typically have experience with artificial intelligence, neural networks, image analysis, machine vision, or signal processing. Success in this role has the potential to lead to increased responsibility at Cognex.

The Role:

This group is seeking engineers with a passion for programming to lead deep learning vision technology development in industrial machine vision as well as those who have the aptitude and interest to work with an exceptional development team.

Essential Functions:

Imagine, design, develop, code, and debug C and C++ machine vision software.

Build efficient, real-time software and related libraries to run either on a PC or embedded platform.

Invent, implement and optimize new vision algorithms involving deep learning AI concepts.

Interact with internal or external customers.

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

Strong programming skills, and experience in production coding.

Experience with signal processing and/or computer vision preferred.

Industrial programming experience desirable.

Experience in applications of computer vision also of interest.

Creative, motivated and looking to work hard for an aggressive growth company.

Minimum education and work experience required:

Must have PhD from a top engineering school in EE, CS or equivalent.

5+ years' experience in relevant, high-tech, industrial jobs coding in C or C++
