Engineering at Zippin

Engineering team and processes

We are a small team and work on two-week development cycles with daily morning sync-ups. We are not religious about technologies; we try to use the right tool for the job, but also try to avoid tool proliferation. We organize our work around ownership - every engineer gets to own one or more business functions for which they are responsible (and accountable). A given engineer may be doing machine learning, video compression, data management; all at the same time.

Technical Challenges

Because we are a real-time computer vision startup, we deal with large amounts of data. Lots of frames of video that need to be processed quickly (in under 30ms). We spend a lot of time debating the trade-offs in performance, storage, and code complexity.

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on real time sensor fusion - combining the outputs from multiple sensors (dozens) in real time to make sense of complex scenes.

  • You would be building our internal tools and dashboards to visualize various types of data. The performance of these tools is measured in the productivity improvements they can deliver to the users.

  • You would get to work on training our machine learning models that are at the core of our tech.
