JOB: Candidates with Computer Vision background required - intelligent IP camera manufacturer, Surrey, UK

Contact: recruitment@vcatechnology.com

Excellent opportunity for PhD graduates/research fellows with a computer vision/image processing background - Surrey, UK.

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.

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. The company has developed a prototype tracking engine on a Texas Instruments Davinci DSP and the successful applicant will be a key player in the continuing development of embedded 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.

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