Interested in applying your cutting edge deep learning (computer
vision) research to real-world applications? Want to work in a startup,
get paid properly, and have meaningful equity? Lead a small, multi-PhD
Xihelm is a venture capital backed, applied deep computer vision startup developing the first viable automated handwork robot for glasshouse vegetables. Our co-founders worked at Google and studied at IIT and Stanford. We have real enterprise and government customers, and are working on some cool recognition tasks that could save billions, and hopefully even save lives.
As employee #11, this is an exceptional chance to join at the start and help define our culture. So far, we enjoy our team lunches, and the CEO’s lightning trigger finger at Laser Quest. What would you like to do?
We’re looking for impressive people. Think you can implement Faster R-CNN in the time most people eat their lunch? Come talk to us.
