Full Time
/ On-site
At Matician, our goal is to save people time and energy through automation. Individuals spend on average 10+ hours weekly doing mundane tasks in their home. We are using Level 5 Autonomy and mobility to reimagine home devices in order to give people this time back. We build and ship great products that solve real problems for real people. Our mission-driven team values learning and curiosity in a high-ownership culture.

We’re looking for a seasoned deep learning engineer with experience in designing and building state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms targeted at perceiving the world around us. Our goal is to push these algorithms to perform real-time, on-device perception of the world so that our robots can intelligently and autonomously navigate within homes.

What you'll do

    • Help define the long-term direction of perception team
    • Translate open-ended real world problems into well-defined machine learning problems
    • Build novel neural network architectures and loss functions to improve state of art methods
    • Build scalable machine learning infrastructure to train large on large datasets and simultaneously be reproducible
    • Deploy machine learning pipelines on the edge with limited compute without sacrificing performance
    • Cross-collaborate with Hardware, Electrical, and Systems teams to bring product vision to life

What we look for

    • Robust machine learning background in computer vision and perceptual tasks, such as segmentation, object detection, 3D perception
    • Track record of product-focused research, applied to real world applications
    • Fluency with Python (PyTorch or similar tools), Rust, or C++
    • Comfort with fast-paced, startup atmosphere -- you don’t shy away from the hard work
    • High level of maturity, ownership, and pride in your work

We'd love to hear from you if...
