Opportunities at Arius Technology

Being an industry-leader in laser-based optical scanning for the digitization of art is pretty exciting! So far, we’ve collaborated with world-class museums, digitized priceless masterpieces (by the likes of Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet), shipped our technology around the world and have even bigger projects in the pipeline.

Exciting Things Happen When Art Meets Technology

Arius Technology is a fast-moving startup, developing proprietary laser-based optical scanning systems for three-dimensional digitization of art.

Under our Verus Art® brand, Arius works directly with museums on conservation projects, and to produce stunningly beautiful, elevated print re-creations of paintings, featuring precise replication of the color, texture and relief of an artist's original brushstrokes.

Under a new brand, Arius will also be working with contemporary artists to explore creative opportunities with this new digitization and elevated print medium.

To find out more about our results so far, check out our YouTube channel. Arius is a privately held Canadian company headquartered in Vancouver, BC.

R&D Support Technologist/Engineer

As an R&D Support Technologist/Engineer, you are a mechanically-oriented member of the Engineering team who is directly involved in new product introduction and early manufacturing. By generating and executing build and test plans, you will support production and technology development of our proprietary laser-based color and geometry scanning system.

This system includes a large format 2 m × 1.5 m vertical configuration translation system that drives a precision optomechanical scanning head, which measures brushstrokes to better than 100 um lateral dimension and 10 um depth resolution. We make use of advanced design and rapid prototyping tools including an in-house 4-axis CNC mill and a 3D SLA printer.

Responsibilities:

  • Assemble, commission and test precision electromechanical and optomechanical systems.
  • Generate and execute build and test plans from concept through production and field roll-out.
  • Review, improve, and create fabrication and assembly documentation.
  • Procure components and perform quality inspection.
  • Define and implement manufacturing processes, procedures, jigs and quality plans.

Qualifications:

  • A technologist diploma or a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or Engineering Physics. Relevant experience will be an asset.
  • Mechanical aptitude and hands-on capability to build, troubleshoot, repair, and operate complex electro-optical-mechanical systems.
  • Experience in fast paced mechanically-oriented field including new product development and introduction.
  • Electrical and electronic systems aptitude, assembly and testing experience, and experience in manufacturing operations, will be assets.

APPLY: Please submit your application to jobs@ariustechnology.com, with the subject “R&D Support Technologist/Engineer”.

Systems Engineer

As a Systems Engineer, you use an integrated understanding of the Arius 3D color laser scanning system and a structured approach to ensure the resulting point cloud data meets the exacting geometric and color requirements of fine art reproduction.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop characterization methods at the system and subsystem level, and analyze and interpret results.
  • Develop measurement procedures, jigs, and analysis procedures for electronic and optomechanical subsystems that include embedded firmware.
  • Isolate and quantify contributions to system performance including noise, interference, actuator accuracy, calibration, statistical variation, and environmental disturbances.
  • Develop improved subsystem designs where such opportunities exist.
  • Conduct exploratory technology development to augment system capability or performance, and evaluate alternative technology architectures and solutions.

Qualifications:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in Electrical, Computer, Systems Engineering, or Engineering Physics.
  • 3-5 years’ experience in electronic, optoelectronic, or mechatronic systems design.
  • Experience with optoelectronic and/or mechatronic systems, and manufacturing operations will be assets.
  • Detail oriented with a focus on producing quality results and an ability to problem solve.

APPLY: Please submit your application to jobs@ariustechnology.com, with the subject “Systems Engineer”.
