Are you a software developer passionate about building systems that demonstrate the potential of new technologies to impact diverse domains such as life sciences, earth observation, manufacturing, or agriculture? Would you love to join a talented, multi-disciplinary team? Then you might be the System Software Engineer we are looking for!
At the imec Solutions department, we build application-oriented prototypes around unique imec chip-level technology to bridge the gap between research and industrial or societal applications. Together with component and domain experts, we innovate at the system level by designing, implementing, and validating integrated solutions (hard- & software) around novel imec technologies – thereby bringing them to the next maturity level (TRL). Our mission is to demonstrate and validate these systems in relevant environments and generate valuable data for our customers and partners. We are building a multidisciplinary team that has expertise in system engineering, mechanics, electronics, optics, software, product development and quality assurance.
Examples of imec Solutions projects:
We are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join the Solutions’ System Software team in Leuven. You will work in multi-disciplinary project teams, together with system engineering, mechanical, electronic, optical, bio-chemical, microfluidic, and other domain experts. Your primary focus will be on the development of system-level software that makes up an integral part of our prototypes. This software will interface with, configure, and test the hardware, orchestrate data acquisition, and take care of configuration, calibration, and data correction. Sometimes GUI applications will be built on top of lower-level APIs, to allow for easier usage of the system by end-users (e.g. imec researchers or external customers).
Your main responsibilities will be:
Additional tasks may include:
We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a market appropriate salary with many fringe benefits.
