StretchSense is developing incredible gloves for human-machine interaction based on soft and stretchy sensor technology. Our motion capture gloves are specifically designed for animators that require perfect finger position data for movies and games. To guarantee the high quality our customers expect, we are looking for a Junior Quality Engineer to join our QC team. 

In this role, you will be involved in all steps of glove manufacturing: production of silicone sensors, textile assembly, electronics, software, mechanical engineering, all the way to the finished product. The multidisciplinary nature of this position requires flexibility, and the ability to dive into individual aspects, while not losing focus on the bigger picture. Working alongside experienced team members, you will build up the skills necessary to tackle challenges independently.

  • Manual performance testing of finished gloves at the end of the production line 
  • Close collaboration with QC team members as well as other teams (Sewing, Production, Electronics, Software, Research and Development). 


  • Monitoring production processes and identifying new failure modes 
  • Assisting the Engineering Team with troubleshooting 
  • Providing feedback to other teams 
  • Strictly following H&S guidelines 


  • Sound engineering knowledge 
  • Comfortable performing hands-on tasks 
  • Software skills: Python, Matlab, MS Office, SolidWorks, Altium
