  • Research and implement state of the art algorithms for domain adaptation and self-supervised learning
  • Implement state of the art models for a range of standard Computer Vision tasks to drive user engagement with the Unity simulation platform
  • Lead junior machine learning engineers with technical decisions to deploy models to the cloud and integrate them with new or existing services
  • Keep up to date with the latest in simulations, perception, and computer vision research

What we're looking for

  • B.Sc. in Data Science, Machine Learning, Statistics, Computer Science, Applied Math, or an experience in equivalent highly technical field
  • Hands-on experience in Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, or Machine Learning projects
  • Hands-on experience building production models with TensorFlow, PyTorch, or equivalent deep learning framework
  • Proven ability to ship quality software products and services

You might also have

  • Ph.D. in Data Science, Machine Learning, Statistics, Computer Science, Applied Math, or an equivalent technical field
  • Significant contributions to open-source software
  • Published research in areas of Machine Learning at major conferences and/or journals
  • Experience with Unity Engine, 3D simulators, game development and graphics
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to build relationships across the company
