My client is seeking a Computer Vision Research Engineer, to work on Multi-View Planar Tracking. In this project, you will work with their diverse R&D team to advance the state of the art in multi-view computer vision, leading to real-world advances in the tools visual effects artists use to create compelling visual stories.

They are the developers of an Academy Award® winning visual-effects software application for planar motion tracking and rotoscoping. It is used by more than 50,000 artists worldwide and has been used on a multitude of high-profile movies including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Avengers Assemble, Spider-Man and Black Swan.

This position is an excellent entry point into the visual effects industry for someone with a demonstrable track record in an academic research environment.

Responsibilities Include

  • Develop algorithms to transfer the 2D, single-view planar tracker into the stereo and multi-view domain
  • Advance computer vision techniques in our key areas of motion tracking, rotoscoping and in-painting.

Required Education and Experience

  • PhD in a related area of computer vision
  • 1-2 years of post-doctoral research experience, or commercial research work in a relevant area
  • Excellent mathematical skills, especially linear algebra and graph theory
  • In-depth understanding of projective geometry, non-linear optimisation techniques and stereo vision
  • An ability to express your ideas in C++ is vital

Desired Skills

  • Experience of cross platform development
  • Experience in structure from motion algorithms: homography computation, fundamental matrix, trifocal tensor and multi-view constraints
  • Knowledge of visual effects tasks and requirements
  • Any experience releasing software for non-technical users would be beneficial
