Sales Manager, Machine Vision, Europe

Emberion is a leading-edge deep technology company that is about to bring its first high-performance infrared camera products to the market. We are now looking for an experienced Sales Manager to serve our European industrial machine vision customer base.

About us

Emberion designs and produces high-performance infrared imagers and cameras based on nanomaterials and in-house designed CMOS integrated circuits. Our primary products are imaging arrays and camera cores for visible light to shortwave infrared imaging (VIS-SWIR). The first product Emberion will offer is a VIS-SWIR camera core 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 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 some 27 people in two locations: Espoo, Finland and Cambridge, UK. We also collaborate closely with both major industrial companies and top-notch research organizations.

Emberion already has a wide customer base that we have been interacting with for several years to ensure our products are relevant to their applications and systems. We also have had an active presence at various trade fairs such as Vision, Photonics West and LaserWorldOfPhotonics.

We are now looking for a Sales Manager to sell our novel VIS-SWIR-cameras to European industrial machine vision customers. We are providing our products to wide range of machine vision companies from hyperspectral camera manufacturers to industrial sorting and inspection system integrators. Key applications we target are recycling industry and food value chain from farm to fork. You will be in charge of managing independently the accounts with the support of whole Emberion organization.
