Teratonics provides solutions and services for contactless, penetrating and non-hazardous non-destructive testing, process control and imaging based on a breakthrough single shot terahertz (THz) technology.

Thanks to its very high speed, Teratonics’s solution can be directly deployed in a production line to peform in-line controls, during the production cycle (typically 10-120s), to optimise the cost of poor quality. In particular, it can control dimensions (like wall thickness with a micrometric precision) and detect defects in plastics (including foamed plastics), composites, assemblies (welding, glueing, metal-plastics hybrids) and coatings. A non-exhaustive list of the defects that can be detected are the presence of bubbles or inclusions, density variations, thickness variations, delamination, poor fiber impregnation, fiber orientation or fiber content.

Your tasks         

On top of our deep tech THz hardware, our products include an industrial control and acquisition unit with proprietary software for the automated scan motion and for data processing of the complementary information of the THz measurement. This firmware is to be adapted according to our product range defined by several priority industrial control applications. Our future Real Time Embedded Software Project Director is going to lead the development of our firmware from the heart of our standardized data acquisition routine to application specific data treatment and result representation, including the Human Machine Interface.
For the application defined projects, you

  • analyze and specify the needs with our commercial and technical team
  • define the project steps in direct coordination with the executive board
  • implement the embedded software and ensure the tests with the team
  • participate in the continuous improvement process, also by considering user feedback

Required profile:
– In-depth experience in industrial software engineering and real time architecture
– Level of certified Labview Developper necessary

– LabVIEW Embedded Systems Developer preferable

– Python, C/C++

– Experience in integration of peripheral device preferable
– Windows environment, Linux preferable

– Autonomy coupled with the ability to work in a team and in an evolutive structure
– Language: very good level of English or French
