This young growing highly innovative small MedTech company which develops 3D Dental Scanning Technology are looking for an experienced C++ Software Engineer, C/C++ Developer with C++ skills to develop the Product and the Technology further. The Software Engineer / Software Developer will have strong C++ skills and be ideally conversant in OpenCV, Eigen, VTK, QT, Point Cloud Library, CUDA, or Open3D and also Python machine learning. A background in Image Processing, Real-Time Computer Vision, Display Systems or Visualisation would be very beneficial. However, Training and Mentoring will be provided for any skills lacking. 

You would need to be in the Central Leeds office 1 or 2 days a week for the first 6 months, thereafter working Remotely. The 3D Scanner technology offers an interesting pipeline of Apps Development including Facial Morphing, amongst others. There is much variety in the work for the successful C++ Software Engineer to develop the technology. There is C++ 3d calculation, machine vision and rendering software ( VTK, OpenCV, Open3d, CUDA, Ceres, QT, Point Cloud Library, OpenGL ).
