Shape the digital future of ZEISS in the Global Algorithms & Software Semiconductor Mask Solutions team!

Our sophisticated algorithms evaluate enormous amounts of image data in a highly efficient manner. Only in this way we enable the performance of our complex photomask systems – the essential building block to manufacture defect-free microchips.

Your Role

Our high-tech measurement systems for semiconductor lithography are characterized by extreme demands on measurement performance. This performance is enabled by optical components at the highest level but would not be possible without high-end data processing algorithms. Your role is to design a modern & scalable architecture for an image processing pipeline, which enables highest possible throughput.

You will join an agile team of algorithmic experts, software developers and high-performance computing engineers, as a software architect and become a central hub for various stakeholders. You will coordinate complex interfaces and ensure a scalable, modular and maintainable architecture for the data-processing on a high-end microscope.

  • proven experience as software architect and in professional software development

  • very good knowledge in image processing, high performance computing, and the design of interfaces

  • several years of practical programming experience with Python, Matlab or C++ and preferably also with parallel computing (CUDA, Cloud systems)

  • a very successfully completed degree in physics, computer science, engineering, or applied mathematics

  • excellent communication skills and great passion to successfully solve complex challenges independently and in a team.

  • very good German and English skills
