Electronics Engineer for 3D Scanner Systems Development

Are you the Electronics Engineer who can help us make the next generation of 3D scanner systems?

Job description

You will join our electronics groups which currently consists of 17 electronics engineers. The team is rapidly growing and now we will expand further with new colleagues in our dental intraoral scanner systems department in order to pursue all the interesting projects we have in the pipeline.
The team is working on tasks such as overall product design, design of systems/boards containing FPGAs, processors, high-speed data transfer interfaces, motors, advanced sensors/image sensors, lasers/LEDs and other mechatronics components. This includes PCB schematic capture and layout as well as design for EMC. There is also subsequent verification of designs including EMC testing.
Development will happen in close corporation with optics-, mechanicals-, software-, and systems engineers to achieve the overall best product design solution.

The team members participate in cross-discipline project groups, developing the scanner itself or accessories to deliver an overall optimized solution for the end-user. The team members are involved in the whole product lifecycle, spanning over idea generation, concept phase, product realization, transfer to our own production and sub-suppliers, as well as product maintenance. At the same time, the electronics team collaborates across projects to share experiences and get feedback on design choices, share technology, and develop our expertise in general.
3Shape’s scanner development department as a whole is made up of nearly 100 motivated experts in hardware, software, physics, optics, mathematics, electronics, and mechanics..

We believe that success is built upon a portfolio of products with user focus and innovative solutions. We therefore strive for a creative, cooperative environment, where everyone has the chance to influence the end-product. In fact, all 1,200+ employees are encouraged to do so.
In 3Shape there is a short path from idea to a product in the hands of the user!
We achieve this by using fast prototyping, an agile project model, and of course by having bright minds!

Your profile

  • B.Sc. or M.Sc. in electrical engineering
  • A least a few years of relevant work experience or superior grades
  • You have knowledge of most of the listed disciplines in the job description
  • Excellence in either
    • Digital electronics design, including test & verification
    • PCB layout of advanced designs
    • Electronic device construction, including bigger and smaller devices
  • Other valuable additional expertise
    • In-depth knowledge of interfaces such as DDR, LVDS, Ethernet, USB, WIFI, etc.
    • ARM/Linux development
    • Ability to program in high level PC languages to some degree
    • Design for EMC & regulatory compliance, including test execution
    • Battery and power technologies
    • Usability engineering

You should also have a desire for contributing in the design/idea phase, for using experimental setups in the exploratory phase, and you reach out beyond your own field of expertise and take on responsibilities in scanner development.

Are you an electronics expert, but your skill set is slightly different to the above scope? We are still interested in hearing from you! We are committed to making the best use of any specialty you may have - for the benefit of all.


We offer

  • A professional challenge in a highly dynamic, globally oriented business environment
  • The chance to influence the future of digital dentistry and the future of a rapidly expanding company
  • An opportunity to become part of an enthusiastic, skilled, international development team in an informal workplace
