Senior Computer Vision Engineer - C++, Python
At RightHand Robotics, we have a rapidly growing and highly capable engineering team building robotic piece-picking solutions and deploying them around the globe. Our product has to be reliable enough to run non-stop on production fleets of robots in the world’s largest warehouses. If you’re simultaneously excited and a bit terrified about what this could mean for you, good! If working hands-on with robots on a daily basis intrigues you, read on!
Our Research and Development (R&D) team -- which is an interdisciplinary group responsible for all motion planning, computer vision, and AI product features -- is seeking a senior computer vision engineer to join the team. In this role you will be primarily responsible for developing and maintaining our proprietary suite of pixel-level and geometric vision algorithms (e.g., calibration, 3D reconstruction) in our multi-camera system. These algorithms are the foundation that enables our fleet of robots to precisely interact with its workspace. This provides an opportunity to have a major impact on our product by contributing software that regularly ships to all of our customers.
- Develop new image processing and computer vision algorithms to improve the RightPick piece-picking system
- Identify and evaluate the feasibility of new imaging sensors in our system
- Work directly with our robots at RHR’s headquarters to prototype and validate algorithms
- Collaborate with other engineering teams to deploy your solutions to address customer needs
- A Ph.D. in computer vision or closely-related discipline with a minimum 2 years professional experience (or a Master’s degree with minimum 5 years professional experience)
- 5+ years software engineering experience in both C++ and Python
- A thorough understanding of projective geometry and experience implementing algorithms for estimating geometric quantities
- Experience using OpenCV
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
It would be great if you have:
- Experience using Point Cloud Library (PCL) and Eigen
The role is perfect for you if:
- You are excited to dive into projective geometry problems and implement efficient solutions
- You have strong opinions about Horn & Schunk vs. Lucas-Kanade optical flow algorithms
- You are skeptical of deep learning, secretly believing it is newfangled hogwash
- There is copy of Hartley and Zisserman on your nightstand
Our perks include:
- Flexible vacation
- Generous premium coverage for medical and dental plans
- Robots, galore!
