Light is pioneering the era of the software-defined camera. Powered by sophisticated computational processes, software-defined cameras deliver intelligent, high-quality imaging at cost-effective, global scale. Light’s first product, the award-winning L16 Camera, has eliminated the quality or convenience dilemma that has plagued photographers for a century. Light’s foundational technologies, including its Lux Capacitor camera control chip and its Polar Fusion Engine for multi-image processing, are licensed for use in applications like smartphones and beyond.

The Computational Imaging (CI) team develops breakthrough image processing and computer vision technologies that produce high quality photographs captured using patented Light camera technology.
The ideal candidate will have experience on classification and semantic segmentation, and programming skills on machine learning tool/library development. You will focus on implementation of model forward inference, and model optimization for deployment on both PC and mobile devices.
While we love new grads at Light, this is not a role for a new grad.

what you will do...

    • Deep learning model development for L16 image processing pipelines
    • ML model profiling, optimization, and deployment on different computing environments
    • Cross platform implementation of forward inference using CPU/GPU/APU//DSP
    • Developing ML computing requirements to guide Light next generation ASIC design

what you bring to Light...

    • MINIMUM 2 years of full time software development experience in industry (not academic)
    • Masters in Electrical Engineering or Computer ScienceStrong software development skills
    • Solid understanding of machine learning fundamentals
    • Proficiency in C++11 and Python
    • Hands on experience with machine learning frameworks Tensorflow, Caffe2
    • Good communication skills and experience collaborating with cross-functional teams

oh, but there's more...

    • You get your very own L16!
    • You get to up-level your game as you work with world class technologists who have proven they know how to create extraordinary technology.
    • We offer medical, dental, vision, life, family leave and commuter benefits.
    • We value flexibility and know that it's a 2-way street. So our teammates get to enjoy our open time off policy.
    • Our passion for photography is evident in everything we do from our in-house photo talks, gallery walks and other photography-obsessed events!
    • Food. Yes. We eat a lot.
