About the role

At Standard Cognition, we’re revolutionizing the way the world shops. By replacing cash registers with computer vision-powered checkout, we’re creating a frictionless experience for shoppers. Since launching in 2017, Standard has contracts with multiple global retailers and is in the process of deploying our Standard Checkout solution across thousands of stores globally. We’re backed by some of Silicon Valley’s leading investors including Softbank, CRV, Initialized, EQT, Draper Associates and YCombinator. We just announced our series C in February 2021!

We’re building real-time vision based system to completely map an entire store and automate most retail operations to provide customers with a frictionless checkout experience. We use machine learning and large-scale data to elevate customer experience, improve efficiency, and reduce costs in the world of retail. We train our models on large datasets of multi-camera perspective images which enables us to build and experiment with a huge diversity of approaches. We are a mix of researchers and production engineers from all kinds of backgrounds, and find that a diversity of perspective helps the problem solving process. You’ll be designing, building and deploying machine learning solutions into production.
