Who we are?
Smartex is a fast-growing company based in San Francisco, Shenzhen and Porto that is leading the way in reducing waste in textile production, using cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence technology, Machine Learning and Computer Vision.
Smartex has attracted some of the most significant capital funds in the world, focusing on industrial technologies such as Momenta Partners, DCVC, Spider Capital, SOSV, and also from the Fashion Industry such as Fashion for Good, a global initiative supported by C&A, adidas, Kering Group, PVH, Stella McCartney, Target, Zalando and others.
Why do we exist?
Smartex Vision is rapidly create advanced & Impactful technologies for archaic industries such as the Textile Industry. Create impact by changing and Improve the world, solving real, measurable and massive problems to help the humanity.
Nowadays the Textile Industry wastes Billions of dollars per year in defective production and the main solution to minimize defective production is having human inspection 24/7 to detect production faults. It got to be a better way!
What we do?
Our mission is to become the nº 1 solution for Textile Manufacturing automated inspection, in Q&C and waste reduction. Also to bring advanced technology to the Textile Industry in order to become transparent, traceable, sustainable, and better serve the humanity!
We build Hardware and Software to integrate camera systems inside textile production machines that can automatically inspect, act, alert, and save resources and time.
We build platforms where all the information lives. Data like textile roll virtual maps, machinery & production performance, manufacturing control, and much more.
The Smartex system is constituted of several independent devices that must be synchronized to guarantee close to 100% inspection of the textile produced.
In a nonstop environment such as the textile industry, embedded software reliability is essential to avoid the production of defective materials.
The embedded solution to this problem was based on a Linux environment and most of its logic is continuously implemented in python.
On this project, you will be able to work with a young and talented team, developing and improving industry-grade software, helping us scaling up the Smartex system.
