JUNIOR + MEDIOR SOFTWARE DEVELOPER
RE-liON is a pioneering IT company, servicing the civil and defence industries. In our world, building live-saving tools requires an almost symbiotic relationship with the end-user. We are on the cusp of international expansion and looking for Software Developers to help us bring our products to the next level.
Although in business for at least 19 years, the atmosphere remains informal, working times are flexible and there is a great deal of freedom to decide how to solve the puzzles in your daily work.
Our flagship product is RE-liON SUIT, a fully immersive, multi-user, full-body motion sensing VR simulator. See the BLACKSUIT video at https://youtu.be/bu-J05lOD4w). We are also active in bridging the gap between GEO Information Systems (GIS) and gaming world editors, aiming to supply the simulations community with next-gen 3D tools.
We offer software developers broad and diverse challenges, that go way beyond traditional gaming and serious gaming.
You can work on any of these areas:
- VR graphics: in-house C++ engine;
- GIS: developing next-gen geographical information systems;
- Simulations: RE-liON uses GPU-based real-time fire dynamics for VR fire fighting;
- Embedded software: RE-liON creates its own electronics, firmware and interfacing;
- Sensor fusion: RE-liON is always pushing VR boundaries with new input devices, actuators and new ways of combining sensor data.
Most of our development work is done using Microsoft Visual C++. All development efforts are team-based, with each team member specializing in a part of a project. A professional organization and project management supports a tight-knit development team. The function is University/Applied University-level (HBO/WO). Affinity with gaming technology is a plus. C++ knowledge is a plus, otherwise a firm grasp of typed procedural languages will do (Java, C#, etc). We expect you to be able to converse in English and preferably Dutch. A security screening is part of the application procedure.
