About You

 Your specialization in Computer Vision is evident, and you have a genuine passion for the field. You are unsatisfied with simply adding superficial features to existing products, working on projects that will never be implemented, or publishing theoretical ideas without practical applications. Instead, you are seeking a position where your models will be utilized in real-world applications, such as controlling robots that operate continuously around the globe.

You possess a strong understanding of neural networks and the ability to write custom training loops, but also have the insight to avoid reinventing the wheel when appropriate. You are well-versed in utilizing inductive biases, invariances, and normalization strategies to optimize performance and generalization. You are proficient in Python and able to effectively script and automate tasks for experimentation and hyperparameter tuning.

What we offer

Apera AI offers a highly competitive compensation package as well as a career track that is filled with growth opportunities. As a fast-growing company, we are always looking for ways to expand and improve, and we want our employees to grow and develop with us.
