The computer vision tools of yesterday were fragmented, incomplete, and inaccessible to nearly all developers. Standard Cyborg is founded on the belief that computer vision should be accessible to all and that there is immense potential to be unlocked by bridging the gap between bits and atoms.

Hackers, students, startups and large companies use our tools to design, test, run and scale computer vision applications such as: designing post-mastectomy bra inlays, capturing faces for custom eyewear, scanning parts for documentation in factories, measuring feet for shoe sizing, and much, much more.

Simply put, we solve some of the hardest and most central problems in computer vision infrastructure so our customers can build amazing things faster.

Active Roles
Why join us?
  • Our impact: - We're empowering the next generation of spatially-aware products and applications. Hackers, students, startups and large companies use our tools to design, test, run and scale computer vision applications such as: designing post-mastectomy bra inlays, capturing faces for custom eyewear, scanning parts for documentation in factories, measuring feet for shoe sizing, and much, much more

  • Our economics: - We've grown from 0 to 1 million in recurring revenue in our first year offering the SDK

  • Our technology: - We're working on really hard technology, usually involving math. Our team are experts in graphics, geometry, vision and machine learning. - We work on tools as well as solutions. We eat our own dog food which we think makes our tools even better.

  • Our team: - We're a team of ambitious and humble engineers who, first and foremost, care about solving real problems shipping great products that we're proud to put our names on. - We have deep expertise in graphics, geometry, computer vision, and machine learning. We love solving hard problems and want to push the boundaries of what's technically possible.


Engineering at Standard Cyborg
Engineering team and processes

We run a weekly development cycle but many of our projects are more unbounded, hard problems so we're not strictly agile.

We start the week on Monday to review what we got done last week and review what we want to get done this week in order to make sure we're on track to hitting our team-committed timelines and goals. Daily standups are informal in a slack channel and are done when people want to give a small tweet-like update.

We use Github and Github PRs to review code. Designs/Specs can be generated where useful, but we don't yet strictly enforce them. We optimize for speed and data model correctness. All our engineers have a large degree of autonomy in accomplishing their goals. There is a lot of collaboration and sanity checking conversation that happens in Slack and helps keep everyone on the same page.

Technical Challenges
  • Real-time RGB-D SLAM for the TrueDepth sensor. Now we are implementing SGDs to further speed things up.
  • C++ SDK for handling 2D and 3D data structure, IO, and relevant algorithms
  • Extended GLTF file format as a flexible scene container for representing 3D data, 2D data, and analysis data.
  • Emscripten WebGL viewer for viewing and editing scenes
  • Novel CoreML architectures for 2D landmarking on mobile
  • Novel 3D point cloud semantic segmentation networks
Projects you might work on
  • Our customers need to use ML training, inference, as well as run conventional CV programs (backed by our SDK) as-a-service in the cloud. These jobs will be trigged manually via the web dashboard, through our API, or through events and hooks in our web platform. (eg a webhook could trigger a validation job, or onCreate could trigger a ML classification). You'd build this service from the ground up.
