An ice cold beer or a nice glass of wine every now and then, we are fans! But have you ever considered the production process of a glass bottle? We do! In fact, it is our daily work to optimize the production process of glass bottles and jars at our clients in the global packaging glass industry.

XPAR Vision develops, installs and implements advanced sensor and robotic technology, with the aim of making glass bottles and jars lighter and stronger and producing them without errors. We are specialists and market leaders in this area and have now installed and implemented more than 600 systems in more than 35 countries. Due to the drive of our internationally oriented team of approximately 35 professionals, more and more producers of beer, wine and food are opting for glass over other packaging materials and the carbon footprint is minimized.

  • Setting up and expanding databases (for example MySQL + GraphQL using javascript/python) and the underlying infrastructure (clusters, servers, virtual machines, dockers)
  • Developing and keeping tooling up-to-date (think of calibration setups, test and measurement systems, continuous integration)
  • Writing user interface software (Qt/QML, javascript frontend frameworks)

What do we ask?

  • Completed HBO+/WO education in a technical direction (physics, chemistry, mechatronics, artificial intelligence, software engineering, etc.). We are open to starters on the labor market;
  • Experience with software development (work experience, or graduation/internship projects) and knowledge of one or more of the languages/frameworks mentioned above;
  • Affinity with hardware: after all, software + hardware together form the end product;
  • Living in (the vicinity of) Groningen;
  • Good command of the English language;
  • In possession of driving license B;

You will be part of an enthusiastic, informal and driven team of 15+ developers, who support each other to achieve an optimal result and good customer satisfaction. You will have the opportunity to further develop and expand your talent by participating in different phases of product development (from research and feasibility studies up to and including the completion and delivery of a complete product), for example working with new techniques or instead you take on a project leader role and come into more contact with customers and suppliers. We also take time for relaxation, we regularly organize fun activities with our colleagues.
