Job Description

Our computer vision sensing engineer is tasked with leading the advancement of our retail behavior sensing libraries.  Our current capabilities are functional and delivering transformative but basic, compared to the breadth of our vision.  We are tasked with improving reliability, specificity, and detecting new behaviors through computer vision interpretation (where people are touching, what they are touching, sensing pickup or walking away with a product) and other sensors (bluetooth for presence), local libraries for demographic segmentation.  Our goal is to deploy these libraries distributed at scale on commoditized hardware that may not be continuously connected to the Internet.  This role is for someone who can get their hands dirty and develop the algorithms while balancing the disciplinary concerns of sensor types, hardware costs, reliability and network variation.   When successful, you have the opportunity to change how in-store digital marketing works in a $4.4 trillion industry (in-store retail).
