DSP / IMAGING PIPELINE SOFTWARE ENGINEER 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 ENGINEER
Pelican Imaging is building the next leapfrog technology in computational imaging - with the potential to change every camera in the world.
You are a software technical leader who loves solving problems and have led multiple cutting edge technology development efforts.
Apply your imaging and signal processing software expertise to integrate advanced imaging/video algorithms in our camera. You will be working in a heterogeneous processing environment taking 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 team delivers high-quality production software to Smartphone OEMs. You will work closely with a highly skilled, multidisciplinary team of engineers.
The Imaging Pipeline Software Engineer will work on our next generation embedded software that is targeted to multiple hardware families and OSs (Android, iOS, Windows, etc)
This is a senior technical position that requires the ability and academic background to understand advanced imaging algorithms and requires experience implementing computationally demanding algorithms on mobile platforms for shipping products.
In general, for this position we like to see Ph.D. or M.S. level of understanding of image processing as well as previous experience with real-world implementation of algorithms in embedded or mobile systems. Previous work targeted towards delivery of image processing algorithms for real-time operation on mobile platforms is a plus. A working knowledge of vectorization, stages of optimization, pros and cons of different types of processing units (i.e. DSP, CPU, GPU), and some reasonable understanding of lower level hardware dynamics (caching, implications of memory transfers) is particularly important for this position. A desire to dig in and understand the critical details needed to ensure success is essential. You are someone who is willing and able to span the gap from high level algorithms understanding to implementation details of small blocks.
You are a strong communicator that can clearly and comfortably discuss alternatives with respect to image processing algorithms, experimental results, and able to represent in a coherent and logical way whatever you believe is needed to help achieve our goals.
This is a challenging position, with much opportunity for personal growth, and an opportunity to make a real difference to the course of our product and applications as we move forward.

Understanding of MATLAB a plus
Aggressive optimization experience in networking, imaging, graphics, multimedia or similar and familiarity with different levels of optimization on different platforms
Comfortable at different levels of abstraction from high level design on a desktop to tuning on an embedded processor
Experience at delivering products --- this is not a 100% research role
Passion for solving problems and identifying new ones
You want to see "the big picture" in what you are working on
Led or worked in a team developing imaging software
Expertise with digital cameras, camera processing pipelines and image quality fundamentals and metrics
Experience shipping a Smartphone or Smartphone component through qualification and mass production
Imaging, 3D, machine vision, AI, and related experience a plus

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. |
