CVEDIA is a funded AI company that develops deep learning solutions for some of the largest organisations on the planet. Our computer vision simulation platform SynCity is the first of its kind - using gaming development tools and machine learning theory, we’ve created a custom, simulated universe that can train and validate AI models for things like autonomous cars, boats, and drones, as well as for applications like robotics, industrial AI, smart cities, and agriculture. Our team is located in 19 countries and we pride ourselves on being autonomous, invested, and highly communicative team members.

vision with a mixture of public speaking and technical writing.

The position involves taking a leading role in building the data 
science capability within the organisation, helping to turn
dataset generation into a repeatable, reliable, value-creating 
business process.
