CAREERS AT ALCHERA

We exist to help our clients build responsive, human-scale intelligence into their cities, transport systems and public and private spaces. Founded by researchers from the University of Cambridge & UCL, Alchera Technologies has a strong and rich pedigree of world-leading machine learning and computer vision sensing technologies.

 

At Alchera we design, develop and deploy a real-time data platform for the automation of smart infrastructure. With a strong core of computer vision leveraging existing video infrastructure, we fuse a number of data sources to provide real-time and predictive insights into the current state of a range of infrastructure and mobility assets.

 

We are looking for bright and enthusiastic individuals who can demonstrate a keen passion for technology and a desire to improve their knowledge and skills to join the team. Working with us means working in an energetic and fun start-up environment with a team of exceptionally talented colleagues, in a position to shape the future of transport and the built environment.

 

To apply, please get in touch at careers@alcheratechnologies.com with a 300-word cover letter and CV.

CURRENT FULL-TIME ROLES

Machine Learning Engineer

You will be working on our data fusion models, working closely with timeseries data. You will be involved in the implementation and training of new pipelines of functionality tackling complex data science problems with machine learning techniques, with a focus on simulation and modelling. You will also spend time on the optimisation of core vision models implemented across other departments in the technical team.

Computer Vision Engineer

This position is within a fast-emerging field based on automated traffic analysis from urban surveillance cameras. This position allows you to explore cutting-edge computer vision techniques on a rich and diverse set of vehicle and pedestrian traffic videos.

 

We are looking for candidates with a background in engineering or Computer Science with solid experience in developing CV algorithms and implementing them in frameworks such as OpenCV. Preferably a good understanding of video and ‘real time’ stream analytics. Any additional programming experience or machine learning awareness is a plus. We will consider motivated graduates.

 

You will work on CCTV feed analysis and on furthering our current capabilities using ML models for object detection (e.g. pedestrian detection capabilities) of further the traffic capabilities (deep scene understanding and contextualization). You will be exploring interesting problems in the areas of:

 

  • Camera to camera matching and tracking
  • Multiple view geometry
  • Using established methods and exploring new ones in the area of object detection and tracking.
