Vision and Technology
"Our vision is to build the best-in-class lidar sensors for autonomous driving."
We are ...
... a fast growing startup in the sector of photonics, optics and automotive
... the Industry leader with FMCW (frequency modulated continuous wave) lidar technology
... platinum winner of the the Laser Focus World Award 2022
In a short video, Frank Gindele, our Lead System Architect, and Alfredo Rueda, our Senior Lab Scientist, will tell what it makes special to work at Scantinel:

Long detection range of up to 300m with 1550nm wavelength
Unique velocity measurement enables fast object identification
High robustness in tough environmental conditions
Enough talking about us.
Now you and your new job are in focus!
With your work you will tackle two of the biggest challenges Scantinel is facing at the moment:
Downsizing the volume of our lidar system by 90% in the next year and by 98% within the next 3 years.
"Our current lidar system size is in the range of a small printer, which you know from home. Our ambitious goal is to trim it down to a size of an iphone package within 3 years."
Setting the baseline for bringing our system to serial production:
Status Quo: proof of concept, batch size 10
Target in year 1: batch size 100
Target in year 3-4: high volume production for automotive industry
The main tasks at work will be:
Create the photonic packaging concept for advanced integrated optical sensors
Create chip and module packaging specifications and drive their implementation in close cooperation with international technology partners
Testing and qualifying the packaged components
Selecting partners and sub-contractors for chip and module packaging
The team consists of 6 experts in the field of mechanics, optics and photonics to conceptualize, test and build the lidar system. Frank Gindele, your supervisor, will give you an overview about his background and some insights about the team:
What we expect from you ...
Master or PhD in engineering or science – related to optics, electronics or photonics
3 years of experience in photonic packaging, integration
... and this is a big plus
Skills in Matlab, Labview C++
Experience with low to high volume production ramp-up
Experience in cooperation with external partners – e.g. supplier management
Ulm - the location of your workplace
