Computer Vision Engineer

San Francisco
Engineering – Computer Vision
Full Time
At Standard Cognition, we're building the future of retail and changing the way the world shops. We're creating autonomous checkout, a system that lets shoppers grab what they want from a store and be charged automatically. Our goal is to be the standard way people check out across the world.

To do this we deploy large (10-100+) multi-view camera installations into dynamic retail environments. Everything we do starts with our camera feeds: we need accurate 3D reconstruction for tracking, derived geometric features for our deep learning models, coverage maps for our installation team.

Retail environments come with their own challenges: cameras need to be calibrated in a store that never closes, and auto-calibrate if they ever move, all without placing any known objects in the scene. We're looking for engineers excited by such problems, with a strong understanding of multi-view geometry, an inventive eye for developing new techniques for our unique challenges and a desire to efficiently scale computer vision into large installations around the world.

This is a full time role is located onsite at our San Francisco office. 

What you'll do here:

    • Design and implement systems and algorithms for reconstructing dense 3D models of retail environments using multi-view geometry and deep learning.
    • Build algorithms that provide real-time scene understanding capabilities for other systems like tracking and action recognition.
    • Implement systems that help us build long-term spatial and temporal understanding of dynamic retail environments.

Who you are:

    • Expert knowledge of multi-view camera systems, 3D reconstruction, intrinsic and extrinsic calibration methods, SfM, SIFT.
    • Proficient in Python, OpenCV
    • Experience with handling multiple cameras is a must
    • Experience with parallel programming is a plus
    • Experience with a low-level or typed language a plus (C/C++/Java/C#/Rust)

    • Only meet some of these requirements? We'd still love to hear from you!
