  • Implement model evaluation algorithms for mobile devices that run in real time
  • Apply machine learning algorithms to improve the performance of our barcode scanning algorithms
  • Extract new insights from our analytics data to improve the performance of our products
  • Build automated QA systems to guarantee robustness, speed and consistency

Who You Are

  • MSc or PhD degree in computer science or a related field
  • Practical experience in machine learning (including deep learning) and computer vision / image processing
  • Familiar with architectures, modeling, capabilities and limitations of deep neural networks
  • Experience in C++ and Python (or a similar language)
  • Published work at relevant conferences (such as CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, etc.) and the desire to mentor other team members are a plus

What We Offer 

  • A highly skilled and helpful team of international researchers, scientists and engineers to work with
  • An environment where you can put your enthusiasm for algorithmic challenges and cutting-edge technologies to use
  • Hackathons, Christmas fondue parties, company outings and other regular events
