DESCRIPTION

Recently acquired by Amazon Robotics, Canvas Technology is using spatial AI to provide end-to-end autonomous delivery of goods. By using state-of-the-art cameras and other sensors, the system perceives its surroundings with unrivaled vision and fidelity. The system combines a mix of high-performance sensors with simultaneous localization and mapping software that builds and continuously updates maps in real-time, completely automatically. It has the capability to ‘see’ and identify different objects, people, vehicles, and places as it moves and react to moving people and vehicles in an intelligent way.

We are looking for a Systems Development Engineer with a strong foundation in automation, monitoring, logging, and configuration management. We are building the next generation of our systems and infrastructure, and we happily embrace open source technologies to do so.

Partnering with internal and external engineering customers, you will help ensure seamless deployment and monitoring of our software and systems.

Who You Are:

You have a strong understanding of large scale computing solutions and embedded Linux systems. You have experience working as a systems engineer in an enterprise environment, and have implemented automated solutions across a variety of platforms.

You’re knowledgeable. You love digging into new technologies and figuring out how to incorporate what they offer into your infrastructure.

You’re passionate about success. You obsess over how to help your customers do their job, not their computing environment. You understand different people have different needs to be productive, and strive to develop self-service oriented solutions. You have a passion for learning, designing, and building cloud computing systems for a diverse set of customers.

Sandra McQueen

VP Marketing

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The type of autonomy that will dominate industry in the decades to come will be of a new kind: adaptive. It will work around its changing environment with ease. It will work seamlessly with people and it will be reconfigurable in minutes. It will do this through the power to see. Visual perception is the harder road, but it will be future proof.

Nima Keivan

CTO

What makes someone successful on your team?

We look for bright people with low ego and a talent for communication and collaboration.
We have witnessed world-class PhDs deferring to engineers just out of school because they came up with a great idea. We have given people with less experience enormous responsibility when they showed drive, good sense and the ability to bring people together.

Sandra McQueen

VP Marketing

What is your vision for the company?

We started CANVAS with the belief that autonomous technology would help transport resources more wisely, both human and material. We set out to create a system with excellent perception that could see well enough to find its way through the most complex indoor warehouses and factories, and also navigate outdoor roads and construction sites.

Jonathan McQueen

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our culture is deeply rooted in learning and continuous improvement. It means that employees are voluntarily enrolling in classes, going to seminars, reading the latest papers on computer vision and machine learning, etc. In addition, we’ll sometimes hear how a developer has spent the weekend building something they were excited about.
