Prime Vision develops innovative and high-end computer vision and robotics solutions. This includes applications like automatic recognition or OCR (handwriting and machine printed text recognition), barcode reading, object recognition, scene recognition, sortation management, autonomous systems and robotics.

Prime Vision has developed the concept Autonomous Sorting, the sorting of shipments by a fleet of mobile robots. In a span of just 3 years we have gone from a concept and client simulation towards a fully operational sorting system which is currently being deployed at clients in Europe and USA. To be able to facilitate growing customer demand and to help us improve the performance of our system even further, we are looking to expand our robotics development teams. We are passionate about what we do and are looking for someone with a similar attitude to support us in creating the right solutions for our international customers.

For the Autonomous Sorting team, we are looking for multiple excellent Robotics Engineers. In this team, we implement a wide range of custom and solution tailored algorithms using state-of-the-art motion planning, control systems and (deep) reinforcement learning techniques while focusing on high quality and results.
