The Video Engineering group is looking for a data scientist with a strong emphasis on computer vision. This position will require collaboration with multiple teams (machine learning, cloud infrastructure support, user studies). We work on multiple, related projects requiring a bit of creativity and ingenuity. You will be able to demonstrate your skills and expertise as we work together to innovate. We are an unusual team in how we operate, and we are looking for creative engineers, physicists, mathematicians, and anyone with room to grow to join us.
