  • Experience with training custom deep learning models, pre-trained CV models like OpenPose/YOLO, or more traditional frameworks like OpenCV or SciKit-Image.
  • Experience with data engineering, writing unit tests, and generally maintaining good code and data quality are a huge bonus.

Preferred Skills

  • Must be strong in computer vision and machine learning and ideally have good software engineering skills or a strong desire to learn and improve in that area.
  • Python/pytorch preferred, familiarity with other frameworks and languages welcome.
  • Ideally would like sports and in particular, American football / NFL.
