Senior Backend Engineer (San Francisco)

LaBine & Associates - San Francisco, CA

Our client is teaching cars and other robots to see like humans see.

We're looking for a few great engineers to join a team that is still less than 10 people. We need you to be fluent in C++ and to enjoy working with a team of peers. We don't require experience in computer vision or robotics, only interest and aptitude.

In case you'd like to know:
We have no non-technical managers. We already have revenue and we recently raised a large Series A round led by a tier one VC. We're building out a new office in Redwood City CA, not far from the Caltrain station. We do not have set working hours and are open to you working remotely one or two days a week.


  • Contribute to the development of state-of-the-art techniques for robotic perception.
  • Research and evaluate both classical and/or machine learning approaches to hard problems.
  • Write production code in C++ for a variety of platforms, including GPUs.
  • Help to recruit and potentially lead a team of similarly-qualified engineers.



  • Bachelor's or higher degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Solid grasp of linear algebra.
  • Fluent in C++
  • 5+ years of professional software development experience with top tier engineering practices like FB and Google.
  • If not from known top tier companies with high engineer bars, need to have other strong signals like github, open source creator, fast career progression.

Nice to have but definitely not required:

  • Experience with multi-threaded or highly parallel programming frameworks: CUDA / OpenGL / Metal / NEON etc.
  • Research or professional experience in computer vision in the context of robotics / AR / VR.
  • Research or professional experience in computer graphics or game engines
  • Worked on highly distributed systems processing massive data set at real time. Example, multi-player real time AR game, Ad tech, Unity engine (Compound Eye processes GB data per second)
  • Strong github profiles - active C++ coder
  • Open source contributor, side projects. Especially in Computer Vision area
  • ACM competition
