In Cognition, people-not devices-are at the center of everything we do. Our tech moves beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together-whether that's colleagues brainstorming around a giant digital whiteboard, scientists "meeting" on the surface of a virtual Mars, or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we're incorporating diverse groundbreaking technologies, from the revolutionary Holographic Processing Unit to computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and more. We're a growing team of talented engineers and artists putting technology on a human path across all devices, including Microsoft HoloLens, Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Kinect for Azure, the Internet of Things, Tablets, Desktops and more! We believe Mixed Reality technology empowers every person and organization to achieve more. If you do too, we need you!
We are looking for a scientist to join our research team. You will be part of a group that uses the latest engineering practices, works on cutting-edge technologies, and faces complex problems in computer vision and machine learning.
* 3+ years of research and development experience in computer vision or machine learning.
* The ability to serve as a technical leader while making significant individual contributions. (No managerial experience required)
