Senior Embedded Software Engineer (m/f/d) LiDAR


Your mission

At the heart of the Blickfeld LiDAR sensor, there is a highly optimized piece of software. It’s this software that puts life into our sensor: controlling the beam deflection units, orchestrating the range measurements, filtering and post-processing data. In the end, the Blickfeld LiDAR produces accurate 3D data that enables cars, drones, and AGVs to perceive the environment. In your role as Embedded Software Engineer (m/f/d) at Blickfeld, you work on some of the toughest technical challenges of our times, and you love it! You enjoy a creative working atmosphere and a “can do” attitude. With your help, our LiDAR sensors will eventually be paving the way to autonomous driving!
