Computer Vision Job Board - Posting Details

Title: Deep Learning Research Scientist Posted: March 9, 2017
Company/Institution: Heavily Backed & Profitable Start-Up
Location: Boston

Description: I have the pleasure of working with one of the hottest AI start-ups on the East Coast, they are looking to hire a number of excellent Research Scientists (Deep Learning and/or Computer Vision) and Software Engineers. This firm already has a number of clients in place and are generating impressive revenues. Their main investor is a multi-billion dollar firm that have ensured a huge level of resources to support their research effort and growth. They are building a data-driven model of the global economy using Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques. They have access to 85PB of data from the past 5 years to work on and they are using this to build a technology base that will make them the global leaders in this space. They have a plethora of avenues into which they can research and provide useful data from unstructured sources using techniques such as object detection, recognition, GIS databases etc. It is also pertinent to note, they don’t intend to replace the need for humans or jobs; they are creating solutions and insight to augment human decision making processes. Their tech stack is largely built around TensorFlow (some Caffe/Torch/Theano) and Python, though they also use a lot of Java, C++ and some R. Their Researchers are expected to attend leading conferences (NIPS, ICML, CVPR etc) and will be able to publish papers. This firm is based within a short distance of MIT, Harvard and Boston University, they hold weekly invitation only machine learning & deep learning seminars with academics and local research groups where they present and discuss the latest in state-of-the-art research. My client is able to pay extremely competitive salaries (above typical start-up rates) as well generous equity portions.
