Imaging Pipeline Software Director/Manager Pelican Imaging
We design, develop and ship all of Pelican's deliverable software products and many internal tools as well. This is where the rubber hits the road - bringing our computational camera processing to the Smart Phone platforms and operating system you know and love. Our knowledge is broad and deep covering optics and imaging through compiler optimization, hardware accelerators, and operating systems. We conceive, design, develop, port, accelerate and qualify. We support and create interfaces for customers, independent SW developers and end-users. Our cycle is fast and energetic - the results of your labor are quickly visible in our products.
Imaging Pipeline Software Director/Manager
The Imaging Pipeline Software Director will work on our next generation imaging pipeline embedded software running on multiple hardware families and OSs (Android, IOS, Windows, etc.). Primary responsibility will be owning the unique Pelican Imaging Pipeline and surrounding systems. Manage, lead, architect, and implement with your team of high powered engineers.
This is a senior Technical Director position that requires the ability to work from imaging algorithm design, to high level software architecture development, to detailed optimization of these algorithms. This is a hands-on position.
You are a Software Director who loves solving impossible problems and have led multiple cutting edge technology development efforts.
Your imaging expertise spans from broad system definition to algorithm design to detailed implementation, and ensuring the architectural integrity of the software design across the whole team.
Apply your embedded software expertise to optimize advanced imaging/video algorithms in our camera. Use your understanding of heterogeneous processing environment to take advantage of the full computing potential offered by CPUs, GPUs, DSPs, and ISP co-processors, and building software that seamlessly works across all these variations, optimized for performance and function.
This hands-on role requires experience in imaging algorithms and digital signal processing.
This team delivers high-quality production software to Smartphone OEMs. You will work closely with a highly skilled, multidisciplinary team of engineers.

Going beyond megapixels, the Pelican array camera provides complete depth information of the captured scene, allowing users to refocus after the fact and perform an unprecedented range of edits. Focus on any subject, change focus (even on multiple subjects) after you take the photo, capture linear measurements, scale and segment your images, change backgrounds, and apply filters, all from any device.
The Pelican camera architecture is designed with no moving parts, which enables the user to take an immediate first shot, followed by very rapid sucessive shots. Every scene is captured in compleInvestors: Globespan Capital Partners

Pelican Imaging's advances in computational imaging have enabled a high-resolution light field camera in a mobile form factor.
At under 3mm thickness, Pelican's array camera is about 50 thinner than best-in-class current smartphone cameras. It is the first mobile plenoptic camera to capture video, 30 fps at 1080p resolution, and to capture still images at approximately 8 megapixels, with excellent image quality.
Pelican's technology has been featured in many press articles, including Forbes, MIT Technology Review, and the Huffington Post; read more about our recent coverage. |
