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.
