Labelbox’s mission is to build the best products for humans to advance artificial intelligence. Real breakthroughs in AI are reliant on the quality of the training data. Our training data platform enables organizations to improve their machine learning models far quicker and more accurately. We are determined to build software that is more open, easier-to-use, and singularly focused on getting our customers to performant ML faster.

Current Labelbox customers are transforming industries within insurance, retail, manufacturing/robotics, healthcare, and beyond. Our platform is used by Fortune 500 enterprises including Allstate, Black + Decker, Bayer, Warner Brothers and leading AI-focused companies including FLIR Systems and Caption Health. We are backed by leading investors including SoftBank, Andreessen Horowitz, B Capital, Gradient Ventures (Google's AI-focused fund), Databricks Ventures, Snowpoint Ventures and Kleiner Perkins.

About the Perception Team
The vast majority of machine learning projects fail because of insufficient or poorly labeled data. At Labelbox, the Perception team’s mission is to build the most efficient tool for creating high-quality training data, allowing our users to make breakthroughs in their domains and advance the field of artificial intelligence.
Our team focuses on building a beautiful browser interface, served to users all around the world. We are responsible for processing images, documents, videos, and more for display in a browser. We build tools that visually annotate and manipulate those assets, and we design the custom components and SDKs that allow customers to build their own interfaces. 
About the Role

As a WebGL Software Engineer on the Perception team, you will be instrumental in pushing the boundaries of what is possible in a web browser. You will work closely with product, design, and other engineers to implement reusable, extendable, performant components that will not only be used internally but can be shared with customers who wish to build their own novel experiences for their labelers. You will balance innovation and pragmatism to not only deliver on business initiatives but to build the right technology foundation for future use cases.

The bottom line: you will personally build, but also empower other engineers to build jaw-dropping experiences to allow the rendering of arbitrary real-world data into a web browser.
