Research Scientist

Do you want to work on world-changing problems in machine learning?

Have you got experience in computer vision?

Do you have a publication record at NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR, CVPR etc?

It’s 2020, and the world has changed a lot. Data is power and we’re creating and downloading more than ever. Streaming services are at an all-time high and on-demand gaming has only just begun. Netflix alone is responsible for over 40% of the data consumed in the US.

That’s one website.

40% of the countries data.

Herein lies the problem, we are consuming too much, too fast. Exabytes of data simply cannot be transported over old, archaic networks, cables installed 20 years ago can’t keep up and it takes huge amounts of time and money to replace them.

BigCloud are hiring for experts within computer vision or media compression to join a fast-growing start-up in London. They are using deep learning to make data compression more efficient, allowing existing infrastructure to be able to transfer huge amounts of data, keeping both vital and non-vital services online. They are already proving that their experiments ae working with images, now they need to apply this to video.

If you want to build something that would literally change our industry, then look no further.

This company is small, so they can only take on exceptional individuals. This is what exceptional means to them:

  • You’ll have a background in compression algorithms. Failing this, experience in computer vision is great.
  • A PhD from a top-tier University and multiple publications at top tier conferences (NeurIPS, CVPR, ICCV, ICLR, ICML, AAAI etc).
  • The ability to read, digest and understand complex technical documents, patents, publications etc.

In return you’ll work with an incredible team, publish your work internationally, develop bleeding-edge products and solve a truly global problem. You’ll also receive a great salary, over £10k of personal hardware to complete your experiments, and generous equity.
