Open position

Computer Vision Engineer

Sensible 4 is a leading All-weather Autonomous Driving startup. We develop software to make shared driverless mobility mainstream – starting with last mile vehicles that work in all weather conditions. To support our company’s growth, we are looking for two Computer Vision Engineers to help us develop our all-weather 3D object detection capability.

This is a hands-on technical position, requiring technical competence in computer vision, machine learning, data engineering and software development. A successful candidate is expected to demonstrate strong skills and track-record in at least one of these areas, and the job title could also be Machine Learning Scientist, Machine Learning Engineer or Software Developer.

The position involves working with deep learning based 3D object detectors (eg. PointPillars architectures). Experience with other deep learning based computer vision methods, such as 2D object detection (eg. YOLO architectures) or image segmentation is also an asset. Experience with multi-modal object detectors that combine multiple different sensor modalities (eg. camera + LIDAR + RADAR) and experience with object detection in particularly challenging and noisy conditions are valuable. Object detector development is data-intensive work, so experience with data gathering, storage, selection, annotation and quality management is valuable. Understanding of machine learning fundamentals is naturally essential in this position, and experience with mobile robotics, autonomous vehicles and MLOps is an asset.

Regarding development work, we expect you to be comfortable with Python, C++, git, Docker, Unix shell and modern software development practices. Knowledge of data structures, algorithms, software architecture design, testing, CUDA, safety standards and DevOps are assets. We hope that you are used to working with Agile methodologies and utilising Agile frameworks.

As we are a growing start-up, the roadmap is flexible. It would be good if you had previous experience with working with ambiguous or uncertain requirements that get clarified over time. Many of the problems we face may not have good existing solutions, so the ability to think and act in an innovative and methodological manner is useful.

We offer you an opportunity to work with the latest autonomous vehicle technologies and develop them further. Our working hours are flexible and partially remote work within Finland is possible. You also have an opportunity to learn from our in-house experts who have decades of experience in autonomous driving technologies. We also offer an employee stock option plan.

Apply now, as the positions will be filled as soon as suitable candidates are found. Please attach your CV and a short cover letter as a PDF with a salary request to your application. For more information please contact Head of research Dr. Antti Kangasrääsiö, antti.kangasraasio@sensible4.fi.

About Sensible 4 

Sensible 4 is an award-winning self-driving technology company developing software for last-mile vehicles that work in all weather conditions.

We believe that the future of transportation will be shared, driverless and electric, and our mission is to take this technology to the mainstream. 

Founded in 2017, our team has grown from four founders to over 80 employees from 20 different countries. Our working language is English. 

We take a sensible approach to self-driving, and we believe this approach will make us first in the market with Level 4 shuttles for commercial use.

Sensible 4’s headquarters are in Espoo, Finland — only a 13-minute train ride from the city centre of Helsinki. 

We secured our first funding of €6 million in 2020, in our Series A round led by a Japanese VC backed by global brands such as Panasonic, Omron and Honda.

About Finland 

Finland is one of the safest and cleanest places on earth. With world-class free education, beautiful nature, and the happiest people in the world, it’s a great place to live. (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-56457295)

The Finnish language can be hard to learn, but fear not, almost everyone in Finland speaks English which is also our working language. Our headquarters are located in Espoo, just outside of Helsinki. There are many ways to commute to our office, by train from Helsinki central railway station (13min) or buses, which stop right outside the office building or take the city bike. 

We have four seasons in Finland, and even if the winter can be cold and dark, the summer days are long and light. The Helsinki metropolitan area offers both an urban city environment and is close to nature which allows you to experience both the archipelago and other outdoor activities as well as big city life.
