Full Time
This is what you’ll do:
The Infotainment/Camera Imaging and Computer Vision team delivers imaging technology and features underlying Rivian’s adventure user experiences and services.  This multi-disciplinary team brings expertise in cameras, algorithms, performance software on state-of-the art compute platforms, and validation to the actual product.  As a Senior Camera Algorithm engineer you will research and develop multi-camera image processing algorithms and collaborate with other domain experts to bring our innovations from concept to product:

·       Collaborate with image processing and system engineers to optimize synchronization and calibration for multi-camera system across a wide range of environmental conditions.
·       Analyze new imaging sensors, lenses, and camera imaging architectures.
·       Develop and maintain end to end algorithm models for multi-camera imagers.
·       Provide simulations to analyze and showcase potential Rivian infotainment imaging experiences.
·       Collaborate with platform software engineers to co-optimize algorithms and software implementation.
This is what you’ll need:
·       Masters in EE/Computer Science/Physics with relevant emphasis in image processing, optics, or signal processing.
·       5 years relevant hands-on experience including one R&D development cycle transferring algorithm results to a platform.
·       Solid understanding of camera models, calibration methods, distortion models and rectification methods, and multi-camera synchronization.
·       Good written communication and presentation skills
·       Understanding of sensor/camera component interactions.
·       Fluent with modelling and programming in MATLAB/Python and C/C++
·       Familiarity with key image processing algorithms and problems around multi-camera imagers including blending, color correction, HDC.

This is what will make you stand out:
·       PhD in EE/Computer Science/Physics with relevant emphasis in image processing, optics, or signal processing.
·       Track record of innovative thinking as evidenced by patents and peer-reviewed publications.
·       Understanding and preferably hands-on experience with deep learning frameworks and Neural Network processing architectures.
·       Experience with compute engines and tools for Graphics, Computer Vision, ML/AI

Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract. 
As a company, we constantly challenge what’s possible, never simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations. 
We operate development centers in Plymouth, Michigan; Southern California (Irvine, Carson & LA); Silicon Valley (San Jose and Palo Alto); Vancouver, British Columbia; and Surrey, England; as well as a manufacturing facility in Normal, Illinois.
