Product Manager, VIS-SWIR products

Emberion is a leading-edge deep technology company that has brought its first high-performance infrared camera products to the market. We are now looking for a Product Manager to a key role in expanding Emberion’s VIS-SWIR product family’s market position.

About us

Emberion designs and produces high-performance infrared sensors and cameras based on nanomaterials and in-house designed CMOS integrated circuits. Our first products are designed for visible light to shortwave infrared imaging (VIS-SWIR) and deployed e.g. in machine vision and demanding surveillance applications. The first product on the market is a VIS-SWIR camera that incorporates our novel VGA array and provides excellent performance for a competitive price. The key performance differentiator of the product is the wide spectral range from 400 to 2000 nm captured with a single imaging array.

Emberion also works on other products, including midwave infrared (MWIR) and wide spectral range sensor technologies. Our background is at Nokia Technologies and we spun-off as an independent SME in 2016. Today we employ over 30 people with diverse backgrounds in two locations: Espoo, Finland and Cambridge, UK. We also closely collaborate with both major industrial companies and top-notch research organizations.


About the role

As our VIS-SWIR Product Manager you are in charge of Emberion’s core product family. You own the existing products and are a key player in defining Emberion’s future product roadmap. You define the specifications for existing products and detailed requirements for future products. You manage the lifecycle of each product and are a key contributor in product pricing.

You also plan & execute product marketing for our VIS-SWIR product range and create application demonstrations showcasing our camera excellence to our potential customers. You follow our competitors, establish detailed understanding how customers deploy our products, what the imaging market needs and translate that information into internal plans.

You work closely with Emberion’s Sales, R&D, Marketing, Application Engineering and Management but also closely interact with customers to understand their needs and identify how Emberion’s products solve their problems and where the new business opportunities lie.


About you
