Innovator Computer Vision

Netherlands, Zuid-Holland, De LierTech & Data

Job description

Climate for growth

It is Priva's mission to create an optimal environment where people can work, grow and develop. We offer global solutions for horticulture and building automation.

Our ambition is to be known as the leading technology and service provider for sustainable urban deltas. We are proud that our solutions result in lower consumption of natural resources and contribute to several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

To fulfill our mission and ambition, we are looking for dedicated colleagues.

Your future ecosystem

Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”. A region that has a great contribution to The Netherlands as food exporter number 2 worldwide, right after the US.

In these 100 square kilometers Priva was founded in the fifties. An innovative second-generation owned family business. Today we are a market-leading company in the Horticultural sector and our ambition is to introduce innovative cloud solutions in accurate greenhouse control, smart (re)use of water, sustainable energy use and efficient labor.

We are proud we emerged from The Netherlands but even prouder that we now operate via 16 international branch offices in over 100 countries worldwide.

In 2021, the first member of the Kompano family, a leaf-cutting robot for tomato cultivation, will find its way to an international market. That is only the beginning and developments are continuing at an accelerated pace to also bring robots for other crop labor tasks to the fore. The team now consists of 9 members and is growing rapidly.

Vision technology is a core technology for Kompano. Why? We are happy to tell you more about the challenging conditions in which vision must guide robot arms accurately and along an optimal path to the correct position in the crop.

How you add value

As Innovator Computer Vision, you are the one to put theory into practice. You have a solid background in image processing, which enables you to translate images into motion control. You will do this by designing and implementing computer vision algorithms. You will contribute to the development of new applications and add new functionalities to existing robots. You will work in a multidisciplinary team, as well in our Priva campus as in greenhouses, to validate your solutions in the real world.
