Become the A.I Lead and co-founder of a fast growing start-up
Draagu is a fast growing tech start-up based in Barcelona, Spain.
We are on a mission to create value with the billions images tapped in smartphones using Artificial Intelligence on-device.
We are looking for an A.I expert to join the management team as a cofounder (with salary + equity) before the summer
Draagu team gathers professional photographer, top level developers, Marketing growth hackers and in App A.I models experts among others, supported by top notch advisors.
In 10 months, we gathered a worldwide community of 40K. mobile App users, with 10M. images accessible and aiming at 100M. images in 2019 ( 50% of Shutterstock base);
We are NUMA accelerated, TechCrunch pitch winner at World Mobile Congress 2017, were selected for Google for Entrepreneur A.I program and just closed a Seed Round of 400K€
Draagu is the opportunity for you to embody your vision of Image recognition best potential applications into a real, widespread, successful product.
Our 400K€ Seed round, soon completed by public loans, gives us a 16 months runway at least.
That will allow you, with us, to imagine innovative ways of using A.I to create value with smartphone images; test and implement latest neural networks solutions or ways to create/use qualitative photo dataset; onboard more efficient in-App image recognition solutions, to find relevant images, rate them, sell them : bring them back to life in one word !
You will be supported by an international talented team, in a project
that demonstrated traction and with the possibility to measure impact
on a large crowd of App users worldwide and several large European
Corporate we are already in discussion with
As a cofounder, this company will be yours and you will represent it; you will take part in strategic decisions (A.I, HR, Tech…) and will have full autonomy to design, execute, assess needed A.I actions. You will receive a competitive salary and will be the 2nd equity holder in the Cap Table of the company, valued at 1,5M€ 10 months only after launch.
We are looking for a Computer vision and Neural Network specialist to act as a cofounder: help us identify business A.I opportunities image related (vision of the sector); define and execute our A.I Roadmap, mixing quick wins and long term cluster (hands on); gather around you a team of A players in A.I field (management).
Draagu has started using pre-trained Neural network (TFL) and on boarded it in an App that notify users whenever we detect they shot an image that can be sold. Disrupting image stock industry is on the way, and we have great traction. But we want more.
We feel there is a lot to be done using A.I on-device for image recognition: crowdsourcing smartphone photos to create images dataset to democratize A.I models training; easing retrieval of image authorization through blockchain are other applicable models to our approach.
