As Austria's largest research and technology organisation for applied research, we are dedicated to make substantial contributions to solving the major challenges of our time, climate change and digitisation. To achieve our goals, we rely on our specific research, development and technology competencies, which are the basis of our commitment to excellence in all areas. With our open culture of innovation and our motivated, international teams, we are working to position AIT as Austria's leading research institution at the highest international level and to make a positive contribution to the economy and society. 


Our Center for Digital Safety & Security is looking for new Ingenious Partner for our location in Vienna. Our Competence Unit for Cooperative Digital Technologies is leading in applied research on the development of data-based IT solutions for various application scenarios, including the design of new and innovative solutions supporting communities in increasing their resilience and achieving their sustainable development goals (SDG). As a reliable partner of industry and public authorities, we work on digital tools for a sustainable and resilient society based on current research results and in collaboration with end users and our customers. The focus of our applications is on climate change impact assessment and the protection of society during crises and disasters. 


Specifically, our Responsive Sensing and Analytics team is developing efficient and scalable algorithms to provide emergency services with the necessary safety-relevant information and analysis results based on sensor and IoT systems on unmanned robots or aircraft (drones) in the event of the release of biological, chemical or radiological hazardous substances (CBRN), for example in the event of disasters.



  • As part of our interdisciplinary teams, you develop efficient and scalable algorithms for the entire processing chain - from data acquisition (various sensors e.g. CBRN) in combination with optical 2D / 3D images to analysis and information extraction for data distribution to national and international stakeholders.
  • You work on the further development of applications, systems, algorithms and digitalization concepts for efficient solutions for operation management information systems (C2).
  • You use the latest sensor technologies with different modalities and improve the situational awareness of emergency services and decision-makers through analysis and data fusion.
  • You use your analytical skills to design new solutions in the field of real-time data and signal processing using state-of-the-art technologies that prove themselves in practice.
  • You use your knowledge of algorithm and software development to implement interactive information systems with graphic visualization.
  • You support the acquisition of new research and development projects and be a reliable contact person for our industry and project partners.
  • Your innovative solutions are geared towards user requirements and are characterized by technological and scientific excellence.
  • The methods you develop prove themselves in practice and are successfully used by our customers.
  • You actively pass on your knowledge to colleagues, support the students in our unit and network with the national and international community.

Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner:

  • Completed university degree, preferably in computer science, electrical engineering, computer engineering, mathematics, physics or similar (minimum BSc. degree)
  • Good programming skills in Object Oriented Programming; Functional Programming and scripting languages are an advantage
  • Knowledge of distributed systems and API development and/or database systems (especially Time-Series and NoSQL) and/or software development tools such as ROS, Docker, versioning tools (Git) is a plus
  • Interest in the area of IoT systems (Cloud, Edge, and Fog) and System of Systems (SoS)
  • Interest in data analytics, data fusion, machine learning and the design of complex algorithms is an advantage
  • Special interest in applied research and solving practical problems
  • Ability to work in a team, flexibility and commitment
  • Very good knowledge of German; written and spoken English

What to expect: 

The minimum gross annual salary on a full-time basis (38,5 h / week) according to the collective agreement is EUR 55.720,--. The actual salary will be determined individually, based on your qualifications and experience. In addition, we offer company benefits, flexible working conditions, individual training and career opportunities. 


At AIT diversity and inclusion are of great importance. This is why we strive to inspire women to join our teams in the field of technology. We welcome applications from women, who will be given preference in case of equal qualifications after taking into account all relevant facts and circumstances of all applications. 


Please submit your application documents including your CV, cover letter and certificates, online.
