Job Description

  • Implement and test computer vision and machine learning algorithms to classify and delineate defects in lumber with our senior image processing staff
  • Interact with customers to capture requirements for defect classification
  • Verify sensor performance using custom calibration software and analysis tools
  • Maintain code models in C++, Python, or MATLAB for defect detection/classification and computational geometry
  • Work with Senior Software Engineers to integrate code into production modules

Our scanning system is highly integrated into a high speed lumber mill's production flow. We identify defects in wood at speeds approaching 3000 ft/min. False positives can be very expensive for our customers and we are pushing the limits of technology to satisfy their requirements. Innovation is not our "job", it's our passion.
