Position Overview and Responsibilities

This position reports to the Chief Technology and Product Officer. 

Computer vision is the core of Metropolis’ product. It not only drives the customer experience but also directly impacts our bottom line. We are looking for the founder of our computer vision team to lead our development efforts towards real time analysis of images and videos. 

You will work closely with the Product team to understand the problem and identify short and long term solutions that will delight our customers. As the lead of a team that will deliver highly technical features, you should have the ability to communicate technical terms in a way that can be understood by all team members, regardless of their technical capabilities. You will work with software engineers to build the infrastructure that will enable data collection, implementation, evaluation, and optimization of our models. 

When you join Metropolis, you’ll join a team of world-class engineers building an ecosystem of technologies at the intersection of parking, mobility, and real estate. Our goal is to build an inclusive culture where everyone has a voice and the best idea wins. You will play a key role in building and maintaining this culture as our organization grows.

Key Responsibilities
  • Develop proprietary algorithms and models that identify objects, their orientation, and their motion in a physical space. 
  • Own the end-to-end development of our computer vision and machine learning efforts from problem definition to deployment and optimization.
  • Partner with the Director of Product to build and execute the product roadmap for the computer vision team.
  • Collaborate with engineering to build the foundational architecture to support the robust development, testing, deployment, and optimization of our models and algorithms. 
  • Assist in the evaluation of cameras, sensors, and other hardware that could be used to enhance the efficacy of our models.
  • Build and lead a world-class team of computer vision engineers.
Requirements and Qualifications
  • Ph.D. or advanced degree in computer science, computer vision, image processing, applied mathematics, or related technical field.
  • 5+ years of hands-on experience building computer vision algorithms. 
  • Deep knowledge of the computer vision and image processing landscape from established techniques (e.g. neural networks, PCA, Kalman filters, and SVMs) to well known frameworks such as TensorFlow.
  • Hands-on and working knowledge of a programming language (e.g. Python, C++).
  • Some experience with cameras, sensors, and other hardware technologies.
  • Solid experience with cloud computing (AWS preferred).
  • Demonstrated experience working collaboratively with Engineering and Product teams.
  • Very strong written and oral communication skills. 
  • Prior experience hiring and managing computer vision engineers, while not required, would be a huge plus.
  • Experience with mobility services or real estate would be a huge plus.

An Insider's view of Metropolis

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Building a network of technology-enabled real estate. We use machine vision, IoT, apps, and distributed computing to blur the boundary of the physical and digital world. Every day is a challenge and a ton of fun.

Bryant

Director of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

The engineers that are successful on our team know how to focus on not only the technical implementation but also have the ability to deliver results that match the product vision and business needs. Ultimately the more the individual contributes to team success the more they will achieve individual success.

Jamie

Principal Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

If you believe that at some point there will be a critical mass of vehicles on the road that are autonomous, there needs to be tech-enabled infrastructure for that ecosystem to function. We want to transform what has always been a narrowly defined parking business into a mobility company that powers every component of the mobility ecosystem.

Courtney

Co-Founder & Head of Partnerships

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our offices are pretty cool -- we have a relaxation room with turf and couches, great snacks and coffee, a monthly “happy hour” where we go to new places like rooftop restaurants and VR arcades to have fun and connect.
