Our client is the Public Sector team of a massively-funded Silicon Valley Geospatial & Signals Intelligence firm backed by nearly 20 VCs. They utilize Artificial Intelligence (computer vision, deep learning, convolutional neural networks) to process the rapidly expanding imagery and other data sets from satellites, drones, mobile devices, and IoT devices, world-wide. This is true Petabyte-scale cloud computing, translating enormous visual information into actionable intelligence that the world's leading decision-makers (both in government and in private industry) use to answer critical questions. Their accolades are impressive, being named to several "most innovative companies" and "best machine learning companies" lists, and they are viewed as a likely future unicorn (the venture capital industry's term for a privately-held company with a value over $1 billion). Their credo is using the power of AI ethically, to create progress in the world.
Our client is seeking a Solutions Engineer to help grow their Public Sector practice by designing, developing and demonstrating their capabilities and products to clients. This is an opportunity to be at the crossroad of the sales, product, and engineering teams. For example, you might be in a morning client meeting with the sales team articulating how a certain computer vision algorithm works to an audience of mixed technical aptitude. Following the meeting, you write some Python code for a new use case you’ve been exploring and then finish the day by joining an internal meeting with various product managers to describe new user requirements, and help prioritize future developments to maximize long-term revenue in the Public Sector.
Work locations are REMOTE, work-from-home, with visits to customer sites throughout the DC metro area. Compensation includes a strong base salary, an annual performance bonus incentive, and very generous stock options that could be extremely valuable over time. The company pays 100% of medical / dental / vision for employees and almost 100% for dependents, and there are many other benefits as well.
All roles require US citizenship and clearance eligibility. A current clearance is preferred but not required.
