JOB: Computer Vision PhD/postdoc wanted for IP video analytics startup


Excellent opportunity for PhD graduates/research fellows with a computer vision/image processing background  Surrey, UK.
We are still looking for candidates.
A unique opportunity to join an internationally funded start up company specialising in the development of video content analysis applications for the CCTV/surveillance market. The company is at its formation stage so this is your chance to get a piece of the action.

Based near Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, the company is looking for PhD graduates/research fellows to join its team of experienced technical and management personnel that are well respected within the CCTV arena. You will be a key player in the development of video content analysis software for a new range of IP security cameras.

Reporting to the Chief Technical Officer, you will be a technology driven individual with a research background in computer vision or image processing and strong C/C++ software development skills in this field. Ultimately, the algorithms will be ported to a Texas Instruments DaVinci DSP with embedded Linux on an ARM9 platform but much of the prototyping work will be done in Windows so excellent C and C++ development skills on both Windows and Linux are essential. You will have a good bachelor's degree from a top-tier university in electronics/computing or related discipline. You will be proficient in written and spoken English.

Your background in computer vision/image processing means you will play a key part in the prototyping and development of our algorithms. You will also be exposed to software development on a wide range of platforms including Windows, Linux and TI DSP, further broadening your skills as a professional engineer.

Some hands-on experience with DSP software development would be highly desirable, but is not essential.

In return you can expect a competitive salary, 25 days paid holiday and share options.
