PamiTC/CVPR Job Board - Posting Details

Title: Head of Deep LearningPosted: May 21, 2019
Company/Institution: Autonomous Driving Firm
Location: Bay Area

Description: My client is already demonstrating capabilities in 3D Perception/Autonomous Driving that surpasses what is widely viewed as state-of-the-art (this has been verified by their clients’ due diligence). They are well-funded by Tier 1 VCs and cash positive; they are generating revenues from several streams (inc a well-known robotics firm). I’ve seen some of their demos and was amazed by what they have achieved to date.

They are looking for a Head of Deep Learning to spearhead their research in this space. The work is very applied and product focused, but, the intention is to publish some of their work over the next 12 months as part of their growth strategy.

Applicants will ideally have:
• MS or PhD in Computer Science, Machine Learning, Computer Vision (or similar)
• Extensive experience in Deep Learning (academic research or industry)
• Fluent in Python/TensorFlow
• Humility

Preferred skills:
• A strong understanding of 3D Computer Vision
• Experience leading a team and delivering products
• C++
• Top level publications (CVPR, NeurIPS, ICML…)

Unlike a lot of AD firms/groups, my client doesn't need to achieve full autonomy before generating revenues or to be classed as a ‘success’. It is not an all or nothing approach; they are already generating strong income from existing clients and their research is applicable to a number of areas. As they hit further research milestones, more contracts will continue to follow, all the way to them achieving their end-goals.

Under an NDA, my client will be able to disclose in-depth details on some extraordinary projects they have lined up over the next year that are sure to announce this firm to the world with a fanfare.
