Standard AI has transformed retail as we know it. With the first autonomous retail solution that works in any existing store, we enable customers to walk in, grab what they need, and walk out - without waiting in line or stopping to pay. The company’s computer vision solution is the only one that can be quickly and easily installed in retailers’ existing stores, representing a giant leap forward for retail tech that enables retailers to rapidly deliver amazing new shopping experiences to customers. Standard has launched dozens of stores alongside Circle K, Compass Group, and others and have hundreds more on the way. We’re the most well funded in our space, backed by some of Silicon Valley’s leading investors including SoftBank, CRV, Initialized, EQT, Draper Associates, and Y Combinator.

We're building a soft real-time machine learning system that provides shoppers with a seamless checkout experience. Our system is vision only, and every store must stream process terabytes of video per day from hundreds of cameras, touching on a multitude of interconnected models. We're pushing the limits of what video comprehension can achieve, and we're expanding to do it at scale. You'll help us solve problems that few teams have ever tackled.

You’ll help build our production system that does real time mapping, localization and classification of all items in a store in real time. This role blends challenging tasks with our multi-view camera system, graph optimization problems, and hard localization, segmentation as well as few shot classification problems. Like other Machine Learning Engineer (MLE) roles at Standard, you will partner closely with full stack engineers, product managers, and operational teams to drive critical business impact.

As a successful MLE at Standard, you will design and build high-quality production inference systems that impact our core business. All our ML Engineers contribute to the full life cycle of model development, from cross-functional data set acquisition, to training pipelines, to model design, to scaling out model serving and monitoring. If this sounds like fun, we'd love to hear from you!
