Deep-tech venture: Software Engineer

About Us:

This Deep-Tech venture is a spin-off from TNO in collaboration with HighTechXL. We are
developing printing equipment, using laser-based technology that has been researched at Holst
Centre for 10+ years.
We’re driven by innovation, and we’re on the lookout for a Software Engineer who shares our passion
for working in a dynamic startup environment. If you’re a versatile, proactive, and technically skilled
individual who enjoys a broad range of tasks and takes ownership of their work, you might be the
perfect fit for our team.
This exciting and rapidly evolving LIFT technology has significant potential to revolutionize industries
such as electronics, biotechnology, and microfabrication.

The system:

The system contains a laser with scanning mirrors, a stage, camera’s and several other critical
modules, which are controlled using a PC based architecture. Main programming language is C#.
The equipment will be installed in a fully automated production environment where an operator still
has interaction with the system. Therefor a (WPF) GUI and a database are important, as well as a
Restfull API. This Deep Tech-Venture also maintains several partnerships with 3rd parties to use specific libraries, in the field of Data processing and image processing.

Job Overview:

As a Software Engineer you will play a vital role in our dynamic and fast-paced startup environment.
You’ll be responsible for a wide range of tasks, while collaborating with a team of like-minded
individuals who share your passion for innovation. Much of the software will be built up from the
