Who we are:
Dimenco is an ambitious and fast-growing Glasses-Free 3D company located in Veldhoven, The Netherlands. Dimenco was founded in 2010 and spun out from Royal Philips Electronics and was acquired in 2015 by Kangde Xin Composite Material, a Chinese Shenzen listed company.
Our Glasses-Free 3D technology is based on applying an advanced optical layer in front of the LCD screen. The optical layer sends out different information to each eye, thereby creating the perception of 3D.
Dimenco is in the middle of a major transition from glasses-free multiview 3D to glasses-free stereo 3D as its main focus. The advantage of stereo is the increase in depth effect, at the cost of single viewer use only. In order to optimally render the 3D image for this viewer, the exact position of the eyes in space should be determined in realtime. This is what we call eye tracking (not to be mistaken with gaze tracking). Accuracy, robustness and low latency are key for a great 3D experience, especially when adding VR (i.e. adapt visualization according to perspective change).
Working for Dimenco means working in a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team where each member brings their very own perspective and background to the table to tackle real-world challenges in a pro-active and pragmatic manner. The Dimenco expertise ranges from software, firmware and electronics to process engineering and optics, all the way to marketing and sales, which offers you the ability to broaden your field of work according to your interests. Learning from each other is key to our success, so strong communication skills are highly valued.
You will join a small team of 4 people that are already working on different aspects of eye tracking. The end goal is to evolve our current state of the art stereo camera based eye tracking system into a low cost and low power integrated chip solution that is robust against all light conditions, facial poses and appearances. This should also be accurate and low-latency enough to accommodate realistic simulated experiences. Your contribution will initially focus on improving the robustness by focusing on retraining and optimizing the algorithm and the neural network design. In a later stage the algorithm needs to be optimized to fit into dedicated hardware.
The ideal candidate has the following profile:
- MSc. or PhD. in Mathematics, Computer Science or related degree
- Well-grounded in computer vision and image processing
- Strong affinity with machine learning and especially convolutional neural networks
- Experience with C++ and OpenCV
- Experience with one of the deep learning frameworks (TensorFlow, Caffe, CNTK...)
- Fluent in English, fluent in Dutch is a plus
Big plus when having experience with:
- Face detection & tracking
- Implementing efficient algorithms
- ARM Neon & GPU acceleration
- Basic knowledge of SoC and FPGA design
- A high-tech environment with strong focus on the international market
- An environment where personal development is fully possible
- A competitive salary
At Dimenco we truly believe that all people should continuously be motivated to develop themselves, the company and their colleagues. We do this by focusing on a FUN working environment where Innovation, Care and Outperform are key-drivers to realize this.
