Are you ready to help us design and build our LaserWeeder that solve real problems in our food supply?

An Deep Learning Engineer at Carbon Robotics will work with the team that designs experiments to test new models and algorithms, optimize them for daily deployments to operational resources in the field, and integrate them with our robotics software stack with your Engineering and Product Management peers.  You’ll do whatever it takes - which might include going to the farm - to ensure our customers have reliable and safe products.

What you’ll do:

  • Design experiments to test new models and algorithms, optimize them for daily deployments to operational resources in the field, and integrate them with our robotics software stack.
  • Build quickly through ownership and collaboration with Engineering and Product Management
  • Drive decision through project planning, task delegation and leading problem solving efforts to reiterate quickly

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities for Success:

  • 2-5 years post gradation working experience as a Deep Learning Engineer or Data Scientist developing and putting Computer Vision Deep Learning models into production using Python and C++
  • Implement model improvements in training code (Python) and robotics execution environment (C++)
  • Effective verbal and written communication skills to explain model details and behavior to non-technical staff and customers
  • Improve labeling strategies to ensure Carbon Robotics maintains leadership in high-resolution plant data
  • Work with product leads to define achievable tasks for ML models
  • Experience in Deep learning model optimization and deployment.
  • Creating high-performance algorithms in CUDA.
  • BS+ in Computer Science, Data Science, or related field - software engineering background are strongly preferred.

Commercial growers of specialty and organic crops buy LaserWeeders from Carbon Robotics because they reduce weed control costs by up to 80% and increase crop quality, yields, and consistency. High precision LaserWeeding is vastly superior to alternatives: labor intensive hand weeding, toxic herbicide spraying, and/or the disruptive mechanical cultivation of planted soil.

Today, Carbon Robotics LaserWeeder shoots and kills up to 200,000 weeds per hour, eliminating up to 99% of weeds, with sub-millimeter accuracy. Our AI/ML deep learning models identify a growing range of crops and weeds at all stages of growth - and our patented technology led only widens with more time, customers, and acres laserweeded.

We are equally committed to equal employment opportunity, and it is foundational to how we recruit and hire our talented team. Employment is determined based upon capabilities and qualifications without discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, sex, gender identification and expression, marital status, military status or status as an honorably discharge/veteran, pregnancy (including potential pregnancy, pregnancy-related conditions, and childbearing), sexual orientation, age (40 and over), national origin, ancestry, citizenship or immigration status, physical, mental, or sensory disability , HIV/AIDS or hepatitis C status, genetic information, status as an actual or perceived victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, or any other protected class as established by law.

Our people are our most important competitive advantage. If solving major real world problems with state of the art technology that you can see performing in customer’s fields excites you, laser in to learn more?
