​​The Position

We are looking for an experienced Computer Vision Scientist to join the computer vision and machine learning experts on our Cabin Monitoring team, that is building key functionality of SmartEye’s next generation Automotive Interior Sensing product – novel automotive technology that will significantly improve road safety and will transform our transportation experiences.

The Cabin Monitoring team is developing a variety of new features related to understanding the state of the car interior and that of the people in it through the intelligent application of the latest machine learning techniques. These include safety features such as detection of child and pet left behind, and where people are sitting in a vehicle. As well as features that understand occupant mood, emotions and reactions, using Affectiva’s groundbreaking Emotion AI, to deliver better mobility experiences that enhance comfort, wellness and entertainment. The Cabin Monitoring features vary from early stage prototyping through to porting and deployment to a wide set of automotive embedded platforms.

We are looking for driven candidates who want to help shape the future of automotive safety and mobility experiences.  The ideal candidate will contribute ideas and can then execute these effectively and efficiently.


  • Design, implement and improve a computer vision/machine learning based feature to meet product requirements.
  • Develop cabin monitoring features using computer vision and a variety of machine learning methods (detection, classification, temporal ML, activity/gesture recognition).
  • Design data collection protocols and annotation guidelines in collaboration with Smart Eye’s data team. 
  • Investigate tradeoffs between accuracy and computational efficiency for edge/embedded environments and propose solutions to meet run-time requirements.
  • Develop and maintain KPI reports to measure and analyze model performance.
  • Contribute to Smart Eye’s shared machine learning infrastructure, including data preparation, model training, embedded conversion and benchmarking/KPI generation.
  • Coordinate with the engineering and QA teams to finalize and test model integration.
  • Communicate effectively with other team members.


Must have:

  • At least 3 years of experience using computer vision, machine learning and deep learning techniques.
  • Experience working with deep learning frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow/Keras, PyTorch) including implementing custom layers.
  • At least an intermediate mastery of programming languages (C++ and Python). 
  • Clear communication and team collaboration skills.
  • Strong software engineering background: ability to write efficient, readable, well-documented code.


  • Experience in the automotive industry a plus.
  • Experiencing with end-to-end development (design, planning, evaluation, deployment) of a machine learning based system.
  • Graduate degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Sciences, or Mathematics with specialization in computer vision or machine learning.
  • Experience with deploying ML models on mobile/embedded platforms.
  • Preference for candidates willing to work in person (hybrid model) in Boston. 
  • Massachusetts employment required after 6 months of employment.

What we offer:

  • Competitive Salary
