Are you searching for meaningful work in image and video processing?

Are you passionate about machine learning and artificial intelligence?

Do you like contributing to critical challenges that require cross-disciplined approaches?

If so, we're looking for someone like you to join our team at APL.

We are seeking a computer vision engineer to help us detect, classify, and track cruise, ballistic, and hypersonic missile threats. In this position you will have the opportunity to develop algorithms that address critical defense problems that impact our country. You will devise creative solutions to unusual problems in a small team environment. We need someone who possesses initiative, creativity, breadth of knowledge and a desire for continuous learning. We provide an inclusive environment for hardworking teams of engineers and scientists to apply their diverse backgrounds in physics, math, electrical engineering and computer science to tackle critical missile defense challenges.

As a Computer Vision Engineer...

* You will develop algorithms for computer vision, image processing, machine learning, and data fusion for unmanned air and space platforms to enable detection, tracking, discrimination, aim-point selection and intercept assessment in stimulating, uncertain environments.
* You will build physics- and experiment-based models of state of the art air- and space-based sensors to enable signal processing and intelligent algorithm development.
* You will collaborate with other hardworking staff to implement, verify and test algorithms in computer-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop environments.

You meet our minimum qualifications for the job if you...

* Possess an M.S. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or other related technical discipline
* Have 3 years of experience working with Computer Vision and/or Machine Learning algorithm development.
