Machine Learning Engineer


Vision is the dominant human sense and thus vital for informing our understanding of the world. At Pupil Labs, we believe that eye tracking should be used to unlock the vast potential of the human mind. Our mission is to provide cutting-edge eye-tracking solutions. Already today, our products empower thousands of users in academia and industry, clinical surgeons, elite athletes, astronauts on the international space station, and many more. Unlocking the full potential of eye-tracking technology relies on solving hard research problems, ranging from core gaze-estimation algorithms employed in our head-mounted eye trackers to developing cloud-based algorithmic tools allowing for the high-level analysis of terabytes of egocentric video data (e.g. semantic segmentation, pose estimation, action recognition, SLAM, SfM, …).

The interdisciplinary R&D team at Pupil Labs, comprising members with backgrounds in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics, is tackling these challenges head on! In close collaboration with other engineering teams, we identify promising R&D avenues and take pride in seeing our results being swiftly integrated into the latest products shipped to our customers.

To support our efforts, we are looking to grow our R&D team in Berlin with a full-time Machine Learning Engineer.
