Image Quality Engineer

Foster City, CA
Engineering – Advanced Hardware
Full-time
Zoox is developing the first ground-up, fully autonomous vehicle fleet and the supporting ecosystem required to bring this technology to market. Sitting at the intersection of artificial intelligence, robotics, and design, Zoox aims to provide the next generation of mobility-as-a-service in urban environments. We’re looking for top talent that shares our passion and wants to be part of a fast-moving and highly execution-oriented team.

The Zoox image quality engineer should be highly self-driven and expected to work with small teams of multi-disciplined engineers. The image quality engineer should be able to analyze image data from opto-electrical systems using standard software tools (e.g. MATLAB, ImageJ, etc.), and should be able to communicate effectively with suppliers to understand ISP and image sensor capabilities. This candidate should have experience tuning image signal processing algorithms and should have a basic understanding of geometric optics and image formation. The candidate should be familiar with modern imaging techniques, such as high dynamic range (HDR) and tone-mapping. The image quality engineer should be able to design and perform tests in the lab and in the field to verify detector performance.

Qualifications

    • B.S. in Physics, Optics, Photonics, or EE
    • 3+ years experience
    • ISP algorithms (e.g. HDR, tone-mapping)
    • ISP tuning
    • Image quality testing (e.g. MTF, distortion, chromatic aberration)

Bonus Qualifications

    • Automotive camera systems (e.g. ADAS)
    • Geometric optics
