Engineering at Vannevar Labs
Engineering team and processes

You will be the fourth member of the engineering team. The team collaborates on weekly sprint objectives and divides work into interface and AI, Vannevar's key areas of innovation, but the whole team shares progress and ideas often. The next people on the team will have a disproportionate impact on the success and direction of the company, and will play a role in setting the structure and processes the engineering team will follow. Vannevar currently uses Slack, Github, CircleCI and JIRA/Confluence.

Technical Challenges

You will be applying the latest advances in deep learning to solve important and difficult CV and NLP problems.

You will be responsible for working with the team and our national security customers to build, deploy, and support our first product. This will involve translating our customers' goals into product objectives, and building robust systems to meet these objectives.

You will also be working on national security problems with some of the most unique and interesting ML datasets in the world. For some problem sets, dealing with compute constraints and high volumes of data will be important. For others, training deep learning models with limited training data will be important.

Projects you might work on
  • OCR and NLP for counter terrorism

  • Add support for new languages

  • Extend our product from analyst-only to operational users who serve in harm's way, helping them prevent civilian and friendly casualties.
