Aquabyte is seeking a Deep Learning Platform Engineer in SF to work on product and algorithm development. We build computer vision and machine learning algorithms for aquaculture fish farms, primarily focusing on salmon farms in Norway. We develop software on off-the-shelf cameras for biomass estimation, sea lice counting, and optimal feeding that help fish farmers better manage their day-to-day operations
Our system operates like an autonomous vehicle with underwater cameras. We work on stereoscopic 3D video, object detection and segmentation, classification, re-identification, and other problems in the underwater domain. This role is flexible and is based out of our SF offices and involves occasional travel to Norway.

Job Responsibilities

    • Build entire application production pipelines from ingest to visualization.
    • Ensure performance and robustness of GPU deep learning pipeline.
    • Assist with deep learning algorithms as needed.
    • Build new products from the ground up.
    • Work at the cutting-edge of the latest machine learning and computer vision research.
    • Serve as a key advisor to all algorithm-related product decisions.


    • Masters or PhD in CS / EE or equivalent from a top research university.
    • Expert in deep learning and computer vision, especially stereographic video, object detection + segmentation, classification, and re-identification.
    • Excellent developer with experience building production-scale data pipelines and web applications in Python or JavaScript.
    • Intimate experience with deep learning frameworks (Caffe, Keras, Pytorch …)
    • Previous startup and product experience.
    • Ability to work independently and efficiently on projects.

Bonus Qualifications

    • PhD in Computer Science with focus on Computer Vision
    • Published papers in stereo video or object segmentation / detection, classification, and re-identification.
