To enable any business, large and small, to leverage the sense of sight to automate any visual task.
To achieve this, we must allow vision AI to be reliable, versatile, and easy to use. In doing so, we are ushering a new era of "living software", where the source code is training data, and the outcomes extend beyond what we humans can manually code.
The world relies on visual decision making. In medicine, engineering, or food production, we continuously see and decide upon what is seen. In a world where technology works for us, technology needs to see.
We are working towards making deep learning more robust and easier to develop, so that any business can implement state of the art AI from a single platform. If we had to make a promise, it would be that adding V7 to your tech stack brings the equivalent advantage of a machine learning & software development team of 10.
In less concrete terms, we believe any device, whether robotic, handheld, wearable, or fixed, should easily gain human-like sight and interact with the world around it once it uses V7. 99% of the impact that vision AI can have on the world is unclaimed: from economical precision agriculture, to surgical assistance, to early detection of cancer. If we make AI accessible to those who work within these fields, down to single individuals, we can truly change the fabric of our society for the better.
We aim to work on problems that you would be proud of talking about with your family and friends, or when you introduce yourself to someone for the first time. We value impact and seek partnerships where impact is massively scaled. In turn, our company is made of pragmatic individuals with ambitions and a desire to apply their skills in a field that will radically hasten our scientific and technological progress for decades to come. We put execution before research, and research before profit. We are remote-friendly and lean on meetings. We automate micromanagement to focus on macro.
Your background and past experiences will have a lasting impact on our culture at this stage of our growth. We involve you in the planning, development, and rollout of products, and encourage you to learn new concepts and skills should you wish to.
We have a surprisingly good work-life balance, valuing the achievements over time spent at your desk. We attend machine learning conferences like NeurIPS or CVPR as a team (sometimes exhibiting) and attempt to cross pollinate ideas by interacting with other ML startups, research labs, or meetups.
Most importantly, we want your life's most pivotal work to happen during your time at V7. If you're looking for an inflection point in your career, this is the sign you're looking for.
We're keen on keeping an environment where you'd go every Monday without hesitation with continuous improvements driven from our team. We have stocked fridges with (mostly healthy) snacks and drinks, quality coffee from a high-end machine, teas, and occasional treats brought in by members from our team. Everyone gets a standing desk with a reclining chair and 4K monitor, and any working tools they might require. More GPUs can be requested anytime for your DL work.
The office is quiet and well heated/cooled with plenty of 5000 kelvin lighting, whiteboards, and a small area for hardware hacking.
We work near Victoria station, and once the current office is outgrown we will remain within Zone 1 close to a tube station.
Half of our team is remote. We accept applications from around the world and maintain a remote-friendly culture with company updates and communications reaching everyone in equal measures.
