Job Description

Our Vision: 
We are a Y-combinator backed augmented reality (AR) startup building a cloud-based visual mapping SDK for mobile AR apps. We believe that AR will fundamentally change how we interact with the web and the physical world around us, and we're looking for engineers to join us on this mission.

The job: 

We're looking for a driven computer vision researcher to join the SLAM and 3D Perception team for Placenote SDK.

Placenote SDK is visual positioning service for mobile AR apps, that helps developers build persistent, shared AR experiences in physical spaces like indoor navigation, multiplayer games, and digital information overlays.

We work with large museums, retail stores and industrial clients on apps that leverage AR to build better user interfaces for traditional mobile apps.

The Product: 

The core of our system is the computer vision algorithms that allow mobile phones to map and understand the world around them. We've also built a cloud-based mapping framework that provides an extremely simple interface to build persistent, multi-user AR applications.

Who we're looking for: 

We’re looking for people who bring together an understanding of theory and solid software skills in some of these areas:

SLAM: Design and implement advanced algorithms for visual mapping and tracking in large environments using point cloud maps. Experiment with visual internal odometry, distributed SLAM, feature extraction among others.

3D Scene Understanding: Design and implement 3D scene segmentation algorithms to intelligently map environments using geometric or deep learning approaches.

Job Description 


Design and implement visual mapping and localization algorithms 
Characterize and quantify the performance of the vision system 
Research and experiment with new approaches to robust SLAM

- Hands on experience with visual odometry, mapping, and slam
