Managing developer to our Computer Vision and Algorithm team

Tobii Tech focuses on integrating Tobii’s core eye tracking technologies and user experiences into VR/AR headsets, laptops, games, smartphones, cars, and many more platforms and products. We’ve built a vibrant ecosystem for PC gaming and we are now rapidly expanding into the VR and AR space. If you want to be one of the pioneers that take eye-based interactions to new, exciting mass markets, we may have just the job for you!

We are the fast-growing market leader within eye tracking technology. Our mission is to transform how humans interact with machines. With us, you get the opportunity to work with an international world class team on challenging innovative projects that make a difference. Join us and be part of something extraordinary.

What we do is important. Our high-technology eye tracking products helps people with assistive needs to communicate using their eyes only. Our products are widely used within a broad range of research on human behavior. At Tobii, you get the chance to use your brainpower and code to improve the life of your fellow human beings.

Algorithms play an essential role in eye tracking technology and mass market applications pose extremely challenging requirements. Do you want to push the performance of eye tracking algorithms beyond what is possible today and transform how humans interact with machines? Do you want to push the performance of the whole team?

Tobii is now looking for an R&D Manager to join our growing computer vision and algorithm team. In this role, you will work both as a manager and as an algorithm developer.

The role and responsibilities

You will be a member of a team of managers with the mission to build a world class computer vision and algorithm group with the capacity to push the performance of eye tracking algorithms beyond what is possible today. As a manager, you will:

  • Be involved in leading the organization of the algorithm development.
  • You will lead 5-8 highly skilled algorithm developers at a personal level
  • Responsible for recruitment, personal development, one-on-ones, everything that make your employees thrive, etc.
  • Engage in the creative process of product development, make sure we have an innovative environment and are structured such that ideas can be realized.

In your algorithm developer role, you will be an important part of the core technology team responsible for the development of eye tracking algorithms to be used in all our products. As a developer, you will:

  • Design, implement and improve algorithms for eye controlled products.
  • Analyze and tune algorithms to maximize performance.
  • Evaluate and optimize code to meet timing and memory requirements.
  • Be part of a team that tackles real problems using state of the art computer vision, machine learning and image processing technologies.

We are looking for someone who

  • Had a team manager role before or have been the informal leader and now want to take it to the next level.
  • Has a passion for creating an energetic fun environment where developers thrive and can achieve their full potential.
  • Has a solid developer background and is knowledgeable in one or more of the following areas: signal and image processing, computer vision, machine learning, object tracking or software development.
  • Has a M.Sc. in engineering physics, computer science, mathematics or similar.

It is a merit if you have industry or research experience in the above mentioned fields. We see it as a great plus if you have worked with software and/or algorithm development, especially for embedded systems. Previous experience programming in C++ and/or Python is also highly regarded.

To be successful in this role you are driven by mathematical challenges and problem solving, or maybe software architecture is your passion. You enjoy coding and you always ensure that your code is of high quality. Here at Tobii we believe in sustainable software development and great engineering practices and we believe that you feel the same.

Please address your questions to Michaela McCarthy, michaela.mccarthy@tobii.com. Submit your resume and cover letter on our website. Please note that due to vacation the response time will be longer than usual. Interviews will be held in August.
