Vision Scientist (M/F/X)

Who we are looking for

We are look­ing for a Vis­ion Sci­ent­ist (m/f/x) who is eager to deep dive into all the fractal details that come along with the mar­vel of human vis­ion without los­ing sight of the big pic­ture. He loves to explore new paths and wild ideas to com­plete the know­ledge puzzle and to con­nect the dots using the united power of an Eng­lish-speak­ing, cross-func­tion­al team around him. She doesn’t fear to chal­lenge her own doc­trines, she is not afraid of apply­ing math con­cepts and stat­ist­ics in a vir­tu­osic way if neces­sary and com­bined with her expert­ise in design­ing and con­duct­ing sci­entif­ic stud­ies, she is brave enough to go the extra mile to ima­gine the solu­tions dis­rupt­ing the eye­wear industry of the 21th century.


  • Devel­op mod­els and con­cepts in the field of human vision
  • Assist in the imple­ment­a­tion of these concepts
  • Design, devel­op and con­duct clin­ic­al tri­als to eval­u­ate these concepts
  • Present and trans­fer opto­met­ric know­ledge to team mem­bers hav­ing dif­fer­ent backgrounds
  • Stay up-to-date regard­ing research and product devel­op­ment in opto­metry and ophthalmology


  • Degree in opto­metry or sim­il­ar (at least bachelor)
  • Sev­er­al years of pro­fes­sion­al exper­i­ence in an optician’s shop or in a med­ic­al environment
  • Deep under­stand­ing of the physiology of the eye and human vision
  • Know­ledge of and prac­tic­al exper­i­ence in dif­fer­ent meth­ods of eye examination
  • Intu­it­ive hand­ling of the under­ly­ing phys­ics, math­em­at­ics and algorithms of oph­thal­mic optics
  • Exper­i­ence in the search and usage of research lit­er­at­ure in the field of optometry
  • Exper­i­ence in the design and imple­ment­a­tion of clin­ic­al tests or stud­ies is an advantage
  • Exper­i­ence in soft­ware devel­op­ment is an advantage
  • Flu­ent Ger­man and Eng­lish (spoken and written)
  • Cre­ativ­ity, tri­al-and-error approach and will­ing­ness to break new ground
  • Con­fid­ence in dis­tin­guish­ing the over­all concept from details
  • Self-reli­ant, struc­tured work­ing style and read­i­ness to sup­port a cross-func­tion­al team in its growth
  • Strong com­mu­nic­a­tion skills and the abil­ity to par­ti­cip­ate in a pro­duct­ive man­ner in discussions
  • Interest in cut­ting-edge tech­no­lo­gies and their progress

What we offer

We offer you the oppor­tun­ity to play an import­ant role in shap­ing the future of the optic­al industry in an agile, small team with flat hier­arch­ies and short decision-mak­ing paths.

The per­son­al train­ing and devel­op­ment of our employ­ees is very import­ant to us. Our remu­ner­a­tion struc­ture is flex­ible and market-leading
