Vicarious aims to transform robotics by creating robots with human level performance on real-world manipulation tasks, with a long term goal of building machines that exceed human intelligence. We are passionate about changing the world with science and software, and we are looking for exceptional people to join us in that mission. Here you will join a small, tightly knit collective of researchers committed to working on solving problems that will take us from the current state of the art to human-level AGI. Our underlying framework uses probabilistic graphical models functionally inspired by the neocortex.

As part of our team, you will:

    • Take algorithms that go beyond our published work and optimize them for real time robot applications
    • Optimize the end to end performance of the system in a production setting
    • Optimize other machine learning algorithms that are company wide bottlenecks.

Demonstrated skills and experience:

    • Excellent programmer in CUDA and/or OpenCL, C++ and Python
    • Experience developing within the Linux ecosystem, including device drivers
    • Experience defining hardware/software APIs is a plus
    • Experience programming a diverse set of GPUs is a plus
    • Preferred PhD or Masters in CS/EE or a related discipline
    • Experience building hierarchical vision systems and publishing relevant papers in CVPR/NIPS/ICML is a plus.

Desired personal qualities:

    • Integrity
    • Ability to admit when wrong
    • Altruism
    • Fearlessness working outside your comfort zone
