THE COMPANY
Our mission is to build the Covariant Brain, a universal AI to give robots the ability to see, reason and act on the world around them. Bringing AI from research in the lab to the infinite variability and constant change of our customer’s real-world operations requires new ideas, approaches and techniques.

Success in the real world requires a team that represents that world: diversity of backgrounds, points of view, and experiences. Our common denominator: ambitious expectations, love of learning, empathy for those around us, and a team-first mindset. Read more about our culture at https://www.keyvalues.com/covariant .

As an Infrastructure Engineer you will:

    • Design, build, and manage the core platform used by our software engineers and ML researchers to develop and train our AI software and robotics systems
    • Evolve best practices for traditional software development to address the needs of cyber-physical systems and deep-learning-based software -- including scalability, maintainability, and security.
    • Collaborate with and support a diverse team, which includes software engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, roboticists, and ML researchers.

We're looking for candidates with:

    • Substantial previous experience in designing, developing and deploying production-grade infrastructure or backend systems.
    • A track record of architecting robust, reliable, maintainable, and secure systems. A track record of technical decision-making and setting priorities in collaboration with stakeholders.
    • Commitment to continuous learning and willingness to work in a variety of technical areas as needed, to solve real problems and deliver business impact.

You might be a good fit if you:

    • Desire to work with a small collaborative team, with a high degree of autonomy and responsibility.
    • Are motivated to work on challenging real-world engineering problems without prior solutions.
    • Are excited to join coworkers that strive to be inclusive, thoughtful, and down-to-earth.
    • Are self-directed and enjoy figuring out what is the most important problem to work on.
    • Have previously done one or more of the following: deployed client-side software, including protecting source code, establishing secure licensing, and performing release engineering; or, set up and scaled developer tooling and CI/CD systems; or built ML or IoT data pipelines processing images and metadata from live deployments.
