Title: Machine Vision Engineer (applying deep learning etc. to satellite imagery)Posted: December 11, 2015
Company/Institution: Orbital Insight
Location: Palo Alto, CA


We are looking for world­class experts in computer vision to join our rapidly growing engineering team to help us analyze and process satellite and UAV images at scale. In one recent project we used convolutional neural networks running on GPUs to identify and count 700 million cars across more than one million parking lots and roads. Other projects have used various technologies to predict corn yield from agricultural images of the US corn belt, count shadow pixels to estimate construction rates for all of China, and analyze floating lids of oil tanks to estimate worldwide oil inventory. We need engineers who are familiar with a broad range of techniques and not be tied to any particular method. They should be unafraid to try new approaches and relentlessly seek to push the state of the art, taking projects all the way from prototype to production ready.

    Job Duties

  • Collaborate with end­ user product owners to understand computer vision needs
  • Design and implement highly scalable computer vision algorithms
  • Design and implement test methodologies for unit testing and accuracy assessment
  • Rapidly iterate algorithms until accuracy requirements are met at scale
  • Support build deployment, management and monitoring systems
  • Provide production support for applications and infrastructure

    Skills & Qualifications

  • MS or PhD Degree in Computer Science or related discipline
  • 2-3 years experience in image processing, computer vision and/or machine learning (industry experience is a plus)
  • Solid software engineering skills
  • Experience with cloud computing (AWS or similar)
  • Experience with automated analysis of satellite or aerial images a plus
  • Expertise in either deep learning and/or multi­spectral analysis a plus
