   Job Description

Archangel Imaging is a startup developing distributed intelligence and advanced unmanned camera systems. We have worked on World Record projects and have developed unique machine vision payloads including edge AI devices featured at BT Augmented Intelligence 2018 (winner), Dubai’s Robotics for Good award in 2017 (finalist) and at Innovate 2017 exhibition.

Our mission is to help organisations gain and manage easily machine vision capability on edge devices deployed in remote areas, such as in automated search and rescue operations, sea crime monitoring and environmental protection missions. Our products combine cutting-edge machine learning with specialist cameras, advanced communication terminals and different levels of swarm intelligence to meet this challenge.

Role description

We are looking for a driven professional with experience delivering complete embedded devices, including hardware (mechanics, electronics) and software. These devices will be our smart cameras, capable of being deployed in remote places.

The ideal candidate will be very hands on, capable of prototyping devices, for example by integrating components, implementing software and designing PCBs and 3D models. Production devices would be produced by partners, so the tech lead will own and manage the end-to-end partner delivery from requirements to acceptance.

Experience with IoT, wireless technology, computer vision and machine learning platforms would be highly beneficial. Depending on your specialities you could be contributing in other areas of the business.
