Company Story

5micron GmbH is a young company located in the innovation & technology hub in Berlin-Adlershof since January 2015. Stakeholder and Managing Directors are Dipl. Ing. Ute Franke and Dr. Jean Blondeau. The company was founded with the business idea 'Development of optical measurement systems for highest precise topographic analyses of surfaces and surface close layers'. The company started with 2 contracted projects from Airbus and Rolls-Royce. 5micron‘s portfolio is based upon photonics technology for high-precision measurement systems. The successfully completed technology development projects for the aerospace industry are based on optic methods, using light for measurement tasks. Current projects are the monitoring and measurement of wing surfaces of aircrafts during flight. The measurement system detects defects or variations in the surface up to 20µm. For further projects the measurement systems have been miniaturized to fit in an endoscope for engine maintenance purposes. In this context specialized illumination devices as a light communicating system for drones identification or other objects have been developed. This light communication system is operating with modulated flashes transmitting covert data or any other information.

Technical Developer (m/f)

We at 5micron are doing topographic measurements where most people do not reach. Minute disturbances up to 5 micrometer is the range we can achieve for surface measurements on a wide range of materials. Our Software algorithms are analysing image data no matter if micro or macro or camera pictures or thermographic images and can as well provide added value to existing data.

Job Description

The 5micron team is looking for technical developers to support the creation of non-standard measurement solutions. You will be member of a team rapidly developing methods and measurement solutions, primarily in the optical measurement context. In this team we will trial new approaches, new techniques, new technologies, and will assess the capability as a product, sometimes in competition to a colleagues technical approach.
New solution approaches will be instantly realized (function model as a result of a feasibility study) to assess the methodology. The next step is then a more detailed demonstrator and beta products.
Our solutions are focussed around aerospace, automotive and have been transferred to the film industry, too.

Qualifications

You are passionate about the interaction between optics and computer hardware as well as with image recognition programming and algorithms. You can demonstrate how these can be employed to develop innovative measurement devices. In this role, you will develop new measurement technologies based on standard physical methods as deflectometry or light section. You will experiment with optical benches and various camera chips, working with state of the art tools as MS office for documentation and will code in MatLab, C++, C# or python.

  • Must have a degree or relevant demonstrable experience in Computing, Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Biology, or other science related field. Working knowledge is preferred.
  • Ability to think out of the box, and across disciplines
  • Demonstrated ability to adapt to new technologies and learn quickly
  • Working knowledge of software development tools and methodologies as well as analogue and digital electronics
    -Ability to work independently and in a team to research innovative solutions to challenging business/technical problems
  • Skilled at project management and presentation.
  • Demonstrable understanding of software development in relevant languages such as MatLab, C++, C# or python
  • The ability to create demonstrators with limited resource and time
  • Strong ‘never give up’ – mentality if first trial fails
