Who are we?

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?

Our Vision is to 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 Humanity.

Nowadays, the Textile Industry wastes Billions of dollars per year in defective production and the leading solution to minimize defective production is having human inspection 24/7 to detect production faults. There has to be a better way!



What do 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 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.



What we're looking for

We are looking for an accountable, passionate & energetic person with hands-on mindset to join our hardware team.

The activities will be performed in Porto and evolving operations all over the World, leading with a diverse group of people for a plethora of new topics every day.

The project will be a very hands-on effort, encompassing optics, software and electronics. The main goal of the project is the suggestion of a machine vision hardware setup with previously defined specifications and boundaries. Besides that, this project aims to ellaborate test plans to evaluate certain machine vision assumptions and follow-up on their execution.
