Computational Photography Researcher

Mountain View, California, United States

Description

Join a cutting edge research & development team, applying novel computer graphics & vision technologies to a mass-scale consumer application, in an industry neglected by innovation for decades.

We are looking for an imaginative computer scientist with experience in computational photography to join our core startup team of vision and graphics specialists. In this role, you will develop novel algorithms to generate attractive, high-resolution, high dynamic range photography from multiple pose-calibrated photographs, depths, surface meshes, and synthetic object models.

This position requires practical experience developing cool photographic imaging applications, such as experience in image alignment, novel view synthesis, super resolution, motion stabilization, mosaic stitching & blending, focus-from-depth, HDR, 3D video conversion, VR capture, multiview/polycameras, synthetic lighting & relighting, ray tracing.

Ideal candidates will have a solid academic foundations in 3D computer vision and computational imaging, and some experience with 3D graphics --- combined with strong scientific method, substantial hands-on software development experience, and an appreciation for visual aesthetics.

Note that this role is NOT a 3D graphics modelling or animation role, and it is NOT sufficient experience to have rendered models using off-the-shelf software or libraries. Candidates will need to be familiar with underlying rendering algorithmic foundations, and be capable of developing new algorithms from foundational theory.
