Are you interested in working on challenging computer vision problems and having a real impact on people's lives? Read on as this opportunity might be for you..
AiCure is a VC-funded startup that leverages mobile technology by combining it with artificial intelligence (computer vision, machine learning, big data) to bring better health, better drugs, and better treatment to everyone on the planet. We re rapidly expanding and if you re passionate about making a positive impact, we d like to hear from you.
You will play the leading role in developing algorithms to solve challenging problems in computer vision on mobile devices. Your work will make a significant impact on our products, and you ll know your work will be used at scale to have significant impact on healthcare for everyone on the planet.
When participants in clinical trials, or patients in population health use the AiCure apps, information on their medication intake is reported in various dashboard products, which allow stakeholders to gain insights, and to take actions (patient alerts, etc.). For example, our apps use computer vision to identify the patient (using face recognition), verify that patients are taking the right medication (pill recognition), and that they are actually taking their medication (action recognition).
Your mission will be to work with a team to invent and implement new algorithms and methods to perform the computer vision tasks above (and several more as we continue to expand our product line), ensuring that they outperform the state of the art and work effectively and efficiently in challenging real world scenarios.
Key responsibilities
+ Design and implement novel algorithms to solve real-world computer vision problems to improve healthcare.
+ Run experiments comparing with state of the art methods, with a strong focus on performance on challenging real-world conditions (motion, low-light, and etc).
+ Work closely with scientists to ensure that research is appropriately transferred to impact products.
+ Experiment with new methods and datasets.
+ Add to our existing extensive patent portfolio.
+ Degree in CS, EE or a related field.
+ Proven experience in computer vision and machine learning.
+ Strong coding experiences in at least two of: C++, Lua, Java, or Python.
+ Experiences in at least one of the machine learning libraries: Caffe, Tensorflow, Keras, or Torch.
+ Ability to work well with scientists to improve the state of the art and impact our products.
+ Excellent communication skills at every level (product, tech team).
+ Excellent time and project management skills.
+ Highly creative, with an outstanding ability to build innovative solutions that consider edge cases.
+ Passionate about revolutionizing healthcare and having a positive impact on individuals and everyone on the planet.
+ Experience in implementing algorithms on the mobile phone is a plus.
Our selection process is highly competitive because we only hire the best, most enthusiastic candidates. Openness, flexibility, creativity, ownership, and accountability are our main pillars. We love solving challenging problems and creating solutions that have real impact on people- at scale.
We're on a mission to revolutionize healthcare and when you join us, you'll have the opportunity of having a real, tangible impact not only on individuals directly using our technology, but also on how drugs are tested and brought to market across the world. That means everyone globally will benefit from what you do. You'll be inspired every day because you'll be making a real difference and you'll see it happen. In real time and at scale.
You'll work with brilliant, positive people who thrive in an interdisciplinary, multi-cultural environment, and are curious, creative, and focused on executing our mission. You'll be up to speed on the most recent advances in Artificial Intelligence (Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Big Data) while solving challenging problems in human psychology and behavior. You'll work with Scientists, Engineers, Designers, and Medical Doctors, to create innovative products that scale in an environment that encourages learning, collaboration, and growth.
We offer great compensation packages that are not only highly competitive, but will allow you to benefit and grow as we expand and scale. This position will include some equity in the company.
Paid Time Off (PTO)/Vacation
Generous and flexible paid time off policy that starts with 20 days of accrual per calendar year so you can take the breaks that you need in order to recharge and stay energized.
Health Coverage
Full (100%) coverage on medical, dental, and vision insurance plans with one of the biggest health insurance companies in the U.S. You'll have plenty of choices for all of your healthcare needs.
We offer 401K so you when you retire, you can benefit from all of the great things you do with us.
Fantastic Location
We're in one of the best neighborhoods in NYC: in the heart of the Flatiron District, close to all that is culture, food, shopping, cafes, and parks to inspire you.
We have a fantastic open loft-space with brand new, state of the art equipment including standing desks, snacks, kitchen, areas for mingling and having a break, and plenty of sunshine. Full views of the Empire State Building included.
