Head of Quality (Automotive) at DeepScale


Head of Quality (Automotive)

Full-Time in Mountain View, CA - fulltime

DeepScale uses deep learning to build accurate and efficient perception systems that enable automated machines to “see”. Our software takes input from sensors and produces an environmental model of the real world. Our prior work has produced neural nets that maintain state-of-the-art accuracy but are up to 500x smaller than other nets designed for the same task. We have thought leaders and experienced practitioners in computer vision, AI-powered 3D reconstruction, and deploying small neural nets in embedded applications.

Our R&D and Business Development efforts are proceeding at a blistering pace, and we are looking to bring on a Head of Quality to ensure we are prepared to meet and exceed industry and customer quality criterion as we bring our perception software product to market. The Head of Quality will build a QA organization that encompasses QA/QC processes, best practices, and test methodologies to exceed industry and customer-specific quality criteria.
