Research Scientist – Computer Vision and Deep Learning

Job description

We’re looking for an individual to join a talented team of research scientists as we prepare to bring DepthIQ™ – our passive, single-sensor depth platform – to market. This is a unique opportunity to apply your experience in computer vision and machine learning across a wide variety of use cases that leverage imaging and depth data in markets spanning mobile, consumer, industrial and automotive.


Who are we and what do we do?


We are a rapidly growing team looking for people who share our passion for developing solutions at the intersection of imaging and depth. AIRY3D has developed DepthIQ™, a 3D computer vision platform that consists of a Transmissive Diffraction Mask and computational imaging software that can convert any camera sensor into a versatile 3D sensor at a fraction of the manufacturing cost.


Based in Montreal, AIRY3D recently raised US$10 million in series A funding led by Intel Capital. This financing will allow AIRY3D to advance its licensing roadmap for the first commercial adoptions of DepthIQ 3D by top-tier consumer electronics companies in mobile and other markets such as automotive and AR/VR.


What are we looking for?


To be successful in this role, you must bring computer vision and deep learning experiences to apply research results to novel solutions showcasing the unique possibilities and advantages of DepthIQ.


What you will do:


As a member of the Research Team, you will be responsible for developing advanced algorithms that extract depth from sensors equipped with our Transmissive Diffraction Mask and leverage that depth in advanced use cases such as anti-spoofing for facial login, gesture recognition, and 3D-scene creation.

Requirements

What you bring to our team:


  • At least 5 years of experience developing computational imaging solutions.
  • Strong preference will be given to candidates with proven experience in-depth solutions (stereo, time of flight, structured light).
  • Expertise in deep learning algorithms in the field of computer vision, image processing, computational photography.
  • A Master's Degree or Ph.D. in Computer Science specializing in image processing, computational photography, computer vision.
  • Experience with OpenCV, OpenCL, git, gtest, JIRA, Tensorflow.
  • Expert in C++, Python, and object-oriented programming.
  • Attention to architectural considerations such as portability to embedded devices, real-time performance, and efficient memory usage is required.


Bonus points


  • Experience with Virtual/Augmented reality applications.
  • Experience with mobile camera applications.
  • Experience with industrial 3D applications.
  • Publications at top-tier peer-reviewed conferences or journals.


What’s it like working on our team?


We believe in creating disruptive technology in a workplace with great work ethics, where we truly enjoy what we are doing and the diversity of those we work with. All while having fun and not taking ourselves too seriously! We offer a flexible schedule, vibrant Mile End location, health insurance, and stock options. If you are genuinely excited about contributing to our success, we’d love to hear from you.


What comes next?


If you think this challenge is right for you, we encourage you to apply. Our application process is quite simple so, it won't take long.


AIRY3D is an equal opportunity employer. If you require special accommodation in any aspect of our selection process, please apply and you will receive instructions on how to contact us to discuss when we confirm receipt of your application.
