Who we are:
Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan. We will use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place.
Calico is seeking a machine learning engineer to develop and productionize computer vision (CV) algorithms and software tools to analyze biological imaging data sets. Such datasets span a variety of dimensionality (2D images, 3D images, videos) and length scales (physiology to microscopy). This person will be part of a cross-functional effort to build a world-class computing and data analysis platform to support research efforts at Calico. Candidates should be comfortable both with implementing and extending known CV algorithms, and with developing novel, scalable methods to solve challenging questions that help further Calico’s mission.
The ideal candidate should be familiar with state-of-the-art computer vision techniques, ranging from image processing to semantic annotation of images and videos. He or she should have experience implementing, extending, and debugging CV models, and have expertise in designing and building high-leverage data infrastructure and tools. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a strong ability to communicate ideas and results, and work cross-functionally to execute on complex projects.
Nice to haves:
