Role Description

We're putting powerful CPU/GPU clusters into the back of every store in the world, and need to build software that can run across this compute in real-time, under heavy loads, executing some of the most intricate ML models in the industry. Performance is everything. We are electricity/size/compute bound, and must use every ounce of FLOPS we can squeeze out. We're currently rewriting our streaming Python multiprocessing pipeline in Rust and are looking for performance junkies to help us design it and optimize the hell out of it.

About Standard Cognition

We build a machine vision solution that allows automatic and instant checkout in stores. Shoppers go to a store, grab what they want, and then leave. No lines and no scanning.

Company Culture

We value independence, candor, and grit. We're solving hard problem and we value people that love taking ownership and drilling into finding a solution. We also value and encourage failure. Most approaches to the problems we work on will fail. Sharing those failures is an important way to move the entire team forward. Because of that we value people's implementation of approaches, not whether those approaches pay off.
