Full Time
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 Computer Vision engineer you will research and develop computer vision algorithms for vehicle security, and collaborate with other domain experts to bring our innovations from concept to product.

This is what you’ll do:

    • Manage data collection, training and validation for deep learning-based approaches.
    • Collaborate with image testing engineers to optimize algorithm performance across a wide range of environmental conditions.
    • Employ analytic computer vision methods when required.
    • Collaborate with platform software engineers to co-optimize algorithms and software implementation on SoC

This is what you’ll need:

    • Masters in Computer Science/EE with relevant emphasis in computer vision or machine learning.
    • 5 years relevant hands-on experience including one R&D development cycle transferring algorithm results to a platform.
    • Solid understanding of machine learning, frameworks, and neural network architectures.
    • Understanding of analytic computer vision methods.
    • Fluent programming in MATLAB/Python and C/C++.
    • Familiarity with compute engines and tools for computer vision, ML/AI.
    • Familiarity with dependencies between performance of vision algorithms and image processors.
    • Good written communication and presentation skills.

This is what will help you stand out:

    • PhD in Computer Science/EE with relevant emphasis in computer vision or machine learning.
    • Track record of innovative thinking as evidenced by patents and peer-reviewed publications.
    • Experience with image processing systems including multi-camera systems and low-light/IR camera systems.
