Pre-Series A

We are solving the fundamental perception problem for self-driving cars, drones, consumer robots and beyond.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • We have early revenue and are seeing significant interest from car manufacturers and Tier 1's, who have a sophisticated understanding of what makes for good computer vision technology from ~15 years of experience in deploying active safety technology to hundreds of millions of customers.

  • Our technology has the potential to save thousands of lives per year and prevent hundreds of thousands of traffic injuries.

  • Our team comes from institutions including Stanford, MIT, Caltech, and Harvard; companies like Quora, Stripe, Google, and Facebook; and we have collectively over a hundred publications and thousands of citations to our names.


Engineering at Helm.ai
Engineering team and processes

We operate on fast weekly sprints where we prototype and evaluate new machine learning algorithms. Engineers work extremely closely with researchers generally around the following areas:

  • improving R&D infrastructure, including:
    • multi-cloud Kubernetes clusters with many machines
    • custom fair job scheduling systems
  • processing and managing our datasets in the cloud
  • improving software abstractions for training models with different prediction semantics with minimal code changes
Technical Challenges

We're solving the fundamental open problem of robust machine perception. We are pushing forward the state of the art in machine learning at the intersection of classical robust statistics and modern deep learning.

Projects you might work on
  • A fair job scheduler for large-scale neural network experiments in the cloud that is now used daily by the entire company for all experiments, data processing pipeline runs, and neural net training.

Working at Helm.ai

We are all extremely driven and focused on effective problem solving. Everyone learns from each other, iterates quickly, and contributes to the effectiveness of our perception systems.

Health Insurance

We offer the best health insurance available to us.

Other

Unlike other companies that have machine learning as a secondary focus, our entire purpose is to solve the robust perception problem, so our algorithms ARE our product.
