  • Lead core projects and mentor junior engineers

  • Translate open-ended, real-world problems into well-defined machine learning problems

  • Architect fast, robust software where testing, debugging, and visualization are foundational

  • Innovate on novel neural network architectures and build scalable machine learning infrastructure to train on large datasets

What we look for

  • 3+ years of experience working on applied problems in computer vision, machine learning, or robotics

  • Proficient in systems programming with Rust and/or C++; fluency in Python

  • Strong software development and team collaboration skills

  • Track record of success in leading projects and teams to successfully delivering key projects or products

  • Academic training in computer science or a related field; graduate degree work is a plus

  • Publication of impactful papers in machine learning, computer vision, robotics, computer science, or related fields

We'd love to hear from you if...

  • You are genuinely motivated to help those around you

  • You are passionate about learning outside of your normal comfort zones

  • You love diagnosing complex technical issues

  • You are excited to do great work

If you got to this point, we hope you're feeling excited about this opportunity at Matic! Even if you don't feel that you meet every single requirement, we still encourage you to apply. We're eager to meet people who are keen to learn and are passionate about what Matic is building. We want to hear how you can contribute to our team in a variety of ways – not just the above boxes.
