Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan. We will use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place.

Position description:

Calico is seeking a computer vision (CV) engineer to develop and productionize CV algorithms and software tools to analyze biological imaging data sets. Such data sets might include static images or videos, both at the macro scale (physiology) and the micro scale (microscopy). This person will be part of a cross-functional effort to build a world-class computing and data analysis platform to support research efforts at Calico. Candidates should be comfortable both with implementing and extending known CV algorithms, and with developing novel, scalable algorithms to solve challenging questions that help further Calico s mission.

The ideal candidate should be familiar with a range of standard computer vision techniques, ranging from basic image processing through more semantic annotation of images and/or videos. He or she should have experience implementing, extending, and debugging CV techniques, and have expertise in designing and building high-leverage data infrastructure and tools. Candidates should be able to demonstrate a strong ability to communicate ideas and results, and work cross-functionally to execute complex projects.
