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 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 Windows devices, including Microsoft HoloLens, the Internet of Things, phones, tablets, desktops, and Xbox. We believe there has to be a better way. If you do too, we need you!
* A BS, MSc or PhD in Computer Science or equivalent, advanced degree preferred * 4+ years of relevant software design and development experience preferably on shipped consumer products or platforms * Deep native development skills in C/C++ design and coding * Proven experience working through the full product cycle from initial design to final product * Outstanding technical problem solving and debugging skills * Excellent optimization skills working in a multi-threaded environment * Excellent written and verbal communications skills
There are plenty of other skills that aren't required, but you'll find useful in this role. Let us know if you have experience with computer vision and/or machine learning.
