Software Engineer

Software Engineering is at the heart of our technologies. Computer Vision and Augmented Reality thrive on robust and efficient implementations. A strong engineer can take a high latency algorithm prototype to a snappy, low power consumption experience. As a Software Engineer at DAQRI you'll be solving challenges at the forefront of Computer Vision and Augmented Reality. Our Software Engineers not only write and test code but also come up with the most efficient algorithms and data structures to use on real-time problems. You will be in charge not only of designing and implementing robust software but also on pushing the capabilities of cutting edge technologies such as our Smart Helmet and our Holographic Displays.

Our Team: DAQRI's team of Computer Vision and Augmented Reality experts work on cutting edge technology and have a chance to make a large impact on one of the most exciting startups. Our team is composed of former academics with strong industry experience. We value high quality, robust and fast code. We put testing at the heart of our technologies, and we're excited about new algorithmic solutions.

Location: Vienna, the capital of Austria, is consistently voted the best city to live in the world (Mercer 2010-2016 Quality of Living Survey). Vienna is known for its coffee culture, low crime rates, music and historical architecture. Living in the heart of Europe allows easy access to most major European cities within a short train ride or a short flight.
