Sr. Systems Engineer
Company: Seek Thermal, Inc
Posted on: September 18, 2022
Hi, We're Seek Thermal.
Join us on our mission to make thermal imaging a part of everyday
At Seek, you'll get to work with the world-class engineers that
pioneered the technology, and now they're building an organization
that's built on that same pioneering spirit...but we can't do it
alone. We want your ideas, your enthusiasm, and your passion to
help us make thermal imaging a part of everyday life, for
The company was founded in 2012 by two industry pioneering
scientists, Bill Parrish, PhD and Tim Fitzgibbons PhD, who spent 40
years advancing the state of military and professional-grade
thermal imaging technology. Following their previous two companies,
Amber Engineering, and Indigo Systems, each with successful
acquisitions, Seek Thermal is their third venture with the mission
to make thermal imaging a part of everyday life.
An unseen world of energy surrounds us. We only see some of it with
our eyes, light from a source of energy reflected on objects around
us. But even though we can't see it, all objects produce or retain
heat. When viewed through a Seek Thermal camera, this world of heat
can be converted to images, providing important information useful
in solving everyday problems that are otherwise invisible to the
naked eye. Seek thermal imaging lets you see the world of heat
instead of the world of light.
Seek Thermal is partnered with Raytheon and NXP to design and
deliver high-quality, affordable thermal imaging sensors and
products across the globe at scale. As one of the few companies in
the world capable of building sensors, Seek Thermal has shipped
hundreds of thousands of thermal imaging products around the world
as it continues to make thermal imaging an accessible, everyday
tool, so people can do their jobs safer, faster, and smarter.
We love where we work, and so can you.
