  • Touchless mode...is the most useful feature [on Moto X].

    David Pogue, NY Times
  • The defining feature of the Moto X is it’s a virtual ear, always straining to hear its owner’s voice say three magic words that will rouse it to action: "Okay, Google Now."

    Steven Levy, WIRED
  • The phone [Moto X] has all the standard features expected of today’s top smartphone, with a twist: the ability to control the phone by talking to it, without lifting a finger.

    The New York Times
  • The voice-response system, called BlueGenie is surprisingly accurate for such a small device. It's better than the voice system in my Blackberry phone.

    US News and World Report
  • [BlueGenie is] an intuitive voice control system...the finest voice recognition user interface we've seen.

    Good Gear Guide
  • Sensory is trying to revolutionize voice and speech recognition by creating TrulyHandsfree, which looks to evolve our interactions with our smart devices.

    Talk Android
  • It may not seem like much, but that little detail of getting the phone to wake up via a voice command - which Sensory calls ‘TrulyHandsfree’ - is one of the trickiest.

    Mashable
  • With its dual biometric factors, AppLock comes closer to the security-and-convenience ideal than I've ever seen.

Research Scientist

Job Code: 18-06 (GH)
Location: Boulder CO

As a Research Scientist within Sensory’s Vision Technologies team, you will bring your intelligence and drive to our patented and award-winning speech and vision products.

Sensory (www.sensory.com) has been a leader in providing speech recognition technologies for many of the top consumer electronics manufacturers. We recently established the Vision Technologies team to create innovative new products that combine Sensory’s speech technology with world-class computer vision, and now our TrulySecure face recognition product is rapidly gaining market share. That’s where you come in. Join our team of outstanding researchers and developers located in Boulder CO, and you’ll have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge mobile and desktop technology, and help further drive the success of our vision products.

Performance Objectives

Here’s what you’ll do when you join the Sensory Vision team:

  • Extend and improve our existing algorithms: help us remain at the cutting edge of deep learning research, as we continue to improve the accuracy, robustness and ease of use of our face recognition and speech technologies.
  • Create new vision-based biometrics: help us deepen the connections between voice and face by looking at things like lip tracking, or exploring 3-D face recognition.
  • Extend our technologies: take us beyond biometrics or even computer vision, in areas such as demographics, lip reading, gesture recognition, and sensor fusion. Bring your ideas on what can be done to leverage our existing technology and then make those ideas real, whether it involves taking existing algorithms off the shelf or inventing new ones in house.
  • Provide technology leadership: we’re innovators – that’s what makes us successful. We need someone who is going to bring vision and technical knowledge to help us maintain our industry leadership. You will need to keep track of new developments in machine learning and computer vision, and bring them to bear on our problems.

Qualifications

For us, qualifications are whatever enables you to meet (and exceed) your performance objectives. So we’re not going to specify a number of years of experience, or tell you exactly what degrees you must have. But here are a few things that should come through on your resume:

  • Strong research record: You’ve published papers (e.g., in NIPS, ICML, CVPR, ICCV), and/or have demonstrated industry research results in patents or products.
  • Experience with machine learning and computer vision tools: You’ve used neural network libraries such as Caffe, Keras, Tensorflow, and Torch, and scientific libraries such as NumPy, Matplotlib, scikit-learn, skimage, and hyperopt. You understand images and video, and the computer vision tools used to manipulate them (e.g., OpenCV).
  • Cutting edge knowledge: You follow trends in the industry, and look to take advantage of the latest breakthroughs when applicable. As a result, you are intimately familiar with a wide array of methods.
  • Results oriented: You understand deeply why designing the algorithm itself is just one part of delivering a real solution. There are lots of reasons for this: your test data never quite covers what you will actually experience in the field, there are almost always considerations related to bandwidth or processing power or something else that put constraints on what you can do, and the calibration and configuration steps cannot require the end user to obtain a Ph.D. to complete. But these are challenges you relish.
  • Solid programming experience: We prototype in Python and Matlab, and write our shipping code in C++. If you’ve done those, that’s great, but we mostly just need to be convinced that you understand optimization concerns, are comfortable with OOP, and understand issues related to speed and footprint of the code you write.
  • Innovative thinking: There’s lots of buzz about security and biometrics, and Sensory is perfectly positioned to be a major player in making that vision reality. So if you’ve thought seriously about how to approach this, then you’ll find opportunities here to try those ideas out.

Culture

  • The Sensory Vision team uses an iterative/agile development methodology (borrowing heavily from Scrum), and you will be a key contributor in the entire development cycle – building data sets, developing the algorithm, implementing it in production code, and making it work in real products.
  • At Sensory, we put a great deal of emphasis on collaboration and maintaining an open working environment – having great coworkers is one of the strongest determinants for enjoying work, and we take our enjoyment of work very seriously.
  • Your opinions matter. We’re driven by technology and innovation, and we look to the smartest, most passionate people on the team as the source of ideas.

Cover Letter

If this sounds like the kind of opportunity you’ve been looking for, then we’re going to need your CV, of course, but equally importantly send us a cover letter giving us a sense of why you think you are absolutely the right person for this job. Tell us how and why you are going to meet and exceed the objectives above, and then we’ll tell you how we can meet and exceed your goals for a great place to work.
