Haption: new job opportunity for control software engineers

The EuroVR member HAPTION is looking for a Control software engineer to insert in its teams.

They are also connected to robots in order to control them remotely while perceiving the interaction forces with the environment.

Position

You will be in charge of the development and maintenance of the control software, used to connect HAPTION products to the industrial robots of our partners. The software implements control algorithms (regulation, filtering), robotics (geometric model, Jacobian matrix, transformations in Cartesian space), communications (data transfer between the force-feedback device and the industrial robot) through direct connections or Internet.
You will develop new functionalities and new software modules, and you will contribute to R&D projects, both internal and collaborative.
Direct contact with national and international customers, you will provide technical support for the software on several platforms.
The workplace is situated in the vicinity of Laval, the French capital of Virtual Reality with its annual exhibition Laval Virtual (www.laval-virtual.org).

Candidate profile

You have a dynamic character and like to work independently. You want to invest your energy into a high-tech industrial project, as part of a small team with strong expertise and motivation. You have an engineering degree, master or equivalent, and solid experience of C/C++ programming.
Some knowledge of control theory and robotics is mandatory, as well as a strong background in mathematics and spatial geometry. Previous experience in robotics is needed.
Knowledge of the LINUX environment would be useful, although not mandatory.
You will need reasonably good writing skills for the production of the software documentation, as a good level in English (written and oral) for the interaction with our international customers and partners.
The French language is not mandatory, although useful for everyday life in Laval.
