About the Role
As the Head of CV and ML, you will be leading a team of highly qualified and talented Machine Learning and Computer Vision engineers working on Dexterity’s computer vision and data analysis initiatives. The role will involve understanding our current products and future requirements and bringing your substantial expertise to augment the products and help us to meet the future requirements. Previous experience leading CV and ML teams to create CV models, large training sets as well as robust regression pipelines is a prerequisite for this role.
We are very interested in expertise around the subfields of semantic segmentation and instance segmentation and you will be involved in keeping up to date with the latest research papers in these areas and implementing them using platforms like PyTorch or TensorFlow. Robotics data also comes in a variety of different forms that are targets for models to help us predict and analyze behaviors emerging from our robotics systems. You will oversee the overall architecture and lead development of the perfect models, in addition to identifying additional opportunities throughout our system that can be solved with machine learning.
In order to thrive in this role you will have significant experience with RGBD datasets and point clouds as they are important to the type of problems you will encounter in robotics. You will have solid experience in writing optimized code in c++ and python and mentoring other developers. You will have experience architecting models, training pipelines and serving infrastructure at scale. The end to end process of gathering and augmenting data, creating balanced training/validation/regression sets, studying the performance of different models and optimizing their quality, and finally deploying and troubleshooting the models as part of a complex robotics system will be under your supervision.
At Dexterity, we believe robots can positively transform the world. Our breakthrough technology frees people to do the creative, inspiring, problem-solving jobs that humans do best by enabling robots to handle repetitive and physically difficult work.
We’re starting with warehouse automation, where the need for smarter, more resilient supply chains impacts millions of lives and businesses around the world. Dexterity's full-stack robotics systems pick, move, pack, and collaborate with human-like skill, awareness, and learning capabilities. Our systems are software-driven, hardware-agnostic, and have already picked over 15 million goods in production. And did we mention we’re customer-obsessed? Every decision, large and small, is driven by one question – how can we empower our customers with robots to do more than they thought was possible?
Dexterity is one of the fastest growing companies in robotics, backed by world-class investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Lightspeed Venture Partners, and Obvious Ventures. We’re a diverse and multidisciplinary team with a culture built on passion, trust, and dedication. Come join Dexterity and help make intelligent robots a reality!
