Are you our next domain expert within precision mechanics, materials, and processes? Do you turn problems into challenges and see them all the way to solutions? Is a good day for you one that takes an unexpected turn? Then 3Shape Lab and CBCT Scanner Development might be the right place for you.

We have recently launched an entirely new scanner product line for dental laboratories, and are on the verge of introducing our first X-ray Cone Beam CT scanner for clinical use. To help us do even more, we are looking for two precision mechanics developers.

Job Description

To help us realize the next generation of scanner products and solutions for dental laboratories, we are looking for skilled precision mechanics developers. The positions relate to the development of both 3D scanners as well as their related accessories and general configuration. Using state of the art modeling and simulation tools, the successful candidate will apply his/her domain knowledge to provide optimum solutions to structural aspects and mechanisms of 3D medical scanners. Using our prototyping facilities, and ultimately in our production facility in Poland, a significant amount of time will be spent to conceptualize and verify aspects of the design against user needs and other requirements. Our products are medical devices, which leads to a natural focus on user requirements, safety, quality and efficacy of our systems.
