Description: At the core of GumGum’s ad targeting technology is the ability to understand imagery. GumGum’s Image Science Team is responsible for developing cutting-edge image technologies and applying them to imagery in the wild at a large scale. We are responsible for research and development for the purpose of new product development (http://www.mantii.com) as well as reactive, and highly customized, algorithmic development for current or potential clients. Our focus is all things image-related including: general object detection, logo recognition, facial recognition, image retrieval etc. Our toolbox ranges from the latest techniques in Deep Learning to traditional, tried-and-true Computer Vision methods. Our aim is to be academically informed and industrially competitive.
We are looking for an Image Scientist with practical experience and an open mind to join our Image Science team. We work in a Linux environment, using C++ and Python, utilizing a wide range of 3rd party tools. We have a laid back yet fast-paced work ethos and operate as a research team, taking our research a step beyond publication and into production. We are encouraged to author and present publications as well as put our lofty, image-related ideas into development.
