About ThruWave

ThruWave's mission is to make the invisible visible, with human-safe millimeter waves. Our customers include world leaders in the ecommerce and retail supply chain. ThruWave’s high throughput millimeter wave sensors are easy to deploy on existing conveyor and automated material handling lines. Our sensors provide 3D item-level visibility, looking through opaque packaging materials to see the items inside. ThruWave’s 3D vision software automatically analyzes these images to extract key process variables, such as item count, cube utilization, dimension, and detection of missing or damaged items. ThruWave's solutions address massive pain points for our key customers.


We are currently seeking a System Test Engineering/QA Lead to add to the ThruWave team. The successful candidate will build the Test Engineering practice for the company. In addition, we are looking for some experience with DevOps/System Administration to cover that role in the short term. You will work closely with the Chief Software Architect and eventually lead the growth of our Test Engineering org.
