Computer Vision Co-Op Internship 
We’re looking for co-op students to work as software developers in the Computer Vision Group at Kitware, Inc., an open source software solutions company located in Clifton Park, NY (near Albany, NY).  We know that as a co-op student you may not have a lot of work experience. This is an opportunity to gain experience while contributing to high level complex problems related to Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning. The resume you submit should highlight technical projects you’ve undertaken either academically or during an internship. We want to know about challenges you faced, how you overcame them and what you learned. 

We do a lot of development in C++ and Python with some Javascript for web clients.  We use OpenCV, ROS, Boost, Postgres, Caffe, Theano, VXL and many other open source tools.  Kitware develops CMake, VTK, ParaView, ITK, KWIVER and a number of other open-source toolkits in a variety. 

Due to contractual restrictions, preference is currently being given to those candidates that are US Persons (citizens, permanent residents, asylees or refugees).

What You’ll Learn
The Computer Vision Group is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of world class experts in computer vision, deep learning, machine learning and software engineering.   You’ll become a member of one (or more) of our dynamic project teams, working closely with computer vision group staff to execute on our wide variety of projects for customers such as DARPA, the Air Force Research Lab, NOAA, IARPA and numerous commercial companies.   You’ll participate as a team member in project planning and execution.  Our sprint meetings provide an opportunity to check in with your teammates and sort out issues together.   Kitware schedules frequent technical lunches with internal and external speakers on a variety of topics coupled with free food for everyone.  Our well stocked kitchens are often the site of lively technical discussions on a variety of topics.  

Why this Job is Important
We consider the work that we do on our government contracts one of the ways that we give back to the community.  We relish the opportunity to work on hard problems that have a direct impact on the health, safety and security of our community; our team members choose Kitware instead of working in large internet companies to sell web advertisements.  One of our core values is to make the technology we develop as broadly available as possible.  This is reflected in the very permissive licensing terms we provide to the government and to our dedication to open source software.  If you think it’s important to help make a difference, then Kitware may well be the place for you.
