  • Posted: April 27, 2022
  • Full-Time

Voyant Photonics is creating a new class of LiDAR devices that fit in the palm of your hand, measure range, velocity, and reflectivity more accurately than anything available today, with costs low enough to meet the needs of any system. We are revolutionizing machine perception, developing low-cost sensors built on silicon photonic chips smaller than your finger tip.

Interested in a career at a young and venture-backed startup making real products out of cutting edge research in silicon photonics? Come join us! We are based in the heart of New York City.

Perception System Engineer

Analysis systems that use 5D active sensing from FMCW LiDAR are in their infancy. Why? Because the FMCW LiDAR systems that generate this data do not yet exist outside of research labs.

Voyant is bringing these incredible technologies to every-day opportunities, and we need creative, talented problem solvers to create the algorithms that will make these sensors a vital part of the next generations of machine perception products.

What you will be doing:

+ Create algorithms that utilize 5D data sets in real-time to analyze real-world scenes using geometric filtering as well as ML techniques

+ Create simulations of sensors to support algorithm development

+ Analyze algorithm performance by comparing simulated data to real data

What we need from you:

+ Deep understanding of appropriate data structures for manipulating multidimensional real-time data sets.

+ Understanding of point-cloud-based image processing.

+ Expert capabilities in Python, Matlab, or appropriate non-real-time algorithmic development environment

+ Understanding of real-time algorithm development for scene analysis from point clouds

Nice to have:

+ Solid organizational and communication skills vital to succeeding in a startup environment

If you are a skilled scientist or engineer seeking an opportunity at a well-funded early, stage startup who takes shipping innovative, world changing products seriously- this is a great job for you.
