Owl Labs is hiring a Computer Vision Engineer to join our diverse development team.  The ideal candidate has strong experience developing computer vision algorithms for use in unconstrained environments.  Bonus if you also love developing robotics algorithms that can use the output of computer vision algorithms (and others) to build world models and make autonomous high-level decisions.

Owl Labs' mission is to solve a problem we've all experienced: meetings suck, and they are especially painful for the remote participants on the other side of the call. Considering the rapid growth in remote and distributed work, this is a perfectly timed problem for Owl Labs to solve. The market is hungry for products and content that make remote and distributed work better.

With $22.3M funding from Spark Capital, Matrix Partners, and Playground Global, Owl Labs has created the Meeting Owl, a 360° smart video conferencing camera that sits in the center of the table and uses robotics algorithms to automatically highlight different people as they talk. After launching the product in June 2017, thousands of companies have purchased the Meeting Owl, saying it offers the most natural and inclusive meeting experience they've ever seen.

In this role, you will impact some of the company's most important product development goals.

    About Us
    Help Scout is made by roughly 110 people in 80+ cities around the world, all with a passion for helping others. We come from diverse backgrounds and are united by an enthusiasm for great products and delightful customer experiences. Help Scout launched in 2011 and today we have more than 10,000 paying customers in 140+ countries.

    Why Help Scout?
    We're remote. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worked remotely before — we’ve been doing it for nearly a decade and are helping to write the playbook — we’re happy to show you the ropes. Most folks that get a taste of working in a "remote first" company have a hard time going back to the old way of doing things.

    We’re passionate about diversity and inclusion. The data is abundantly clear about diverse teams being more successful, and we're dedicated to setting the team up for success. Today our leadership team is 62% women, and that's just the start. Here’s our 2019 report. 

    We're committed to SMBs for the long term. Help Scout is focused entirely on serving small and midsize businesses, typically up to 500 employees, because those companies view customer service differently. It's not a cost to be optimized, it's their most effective marketing tool and a key differentiator from the competition. We built Help Scout for companies that truly value being customer-centric (like us) and want a product that shares their values.

    We're leaving the world better than we found it. Did you know Help Scout is a certified B Corporation, with a mission to give away at least 1% of our product through Help Scout for Good? Our company exists not just to help ourselves, but to invest in our team, our customers, our community, and our environment.

    Our commitment to you
    We are an equal opportunity employer and are committed to building a company that embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We have read the studies and understand that diverse teams build better products, bring more perspective to the table, contribute to a company’s financial success and help foster a more inclusive environment for all employees, but the bottom line is that it's the right thing to do.

    To our future Senior Embedded Engineer
    At Density, we build one of the most advanced people sensing systems in the world. The product and infrastructure is nuanced and one-of-a-kind. Building this product for scale has been an exercise in patience, creativity, remarkable engineering, laser physics, global logistics, and grit. The team is thoughtful, driven, and world-class.


    Why this is an important role
    Last week our DPUs detected a million humans walking through doors. A number that increases every week.

    As engineers, we think it's pretty cool to be capturing events at this volume. Especially when it's done anonymously, accurately, and in real-time. Although counting people is a DPU's top priority, it needs to do so much more.

    Our system must efficiently and reliably:
    - Receive and process improvements through command and control functionality
    - Seamlessly interact with our network of partner products (building automation and security integrations)
    - Push diagnostic data to allow remote monitoring and troubleshooting.

    Our DPU has a growing set of responsibilities. We need an experienced hand to help us imagine, build, and maintain these mission critical systems and functionalities. Are you up for the job?

    This role reports to our Director of Software Engineering.


    Requirements:

    • Deep understanding of modern C++
    • Exceptional comfort with networking, specifically in enterprise environments (this is big for us)
    • Strong experience with the Linux system level APIs, placing an emphasis on designing AsyncIO/event loop based embedded user space daemons.
    • Experience integrating with custom hardware via standard Linux interfaces.
    • Strong understanding of TLS based communication (ideally using OpenSSL).
    • Experience interfacing with large scale cloud based backends.
    • Experience with an embedded Linux build system (Yocto, Buildroot, Linux from Scratch)


    • Bonus Points for:

    • Computer Vision
    • Machine learning and machine learning hardware
    • Experience with building automation. Specifically Bacnet protocol.
    • Python 3 AsyncIO
    • AWS lambda
    • Nomad/Terraform
    • ZMQ
    • Kafka
    • BLE
    • 802.11 
    • CDP or LLDP
    While we have offices in Syracuse (NY), San Francisco, and NYC, we embrace and have built a culture around remote work.
