  • Familiarity with machine and deep learning (e.g. supervised/unsupervised learning, training/validation/test sets, classification/regression, metrics, neural networks, loss functions, optimization, data augmentation, transfer learning)
  • Familiarity with modern computer vision techniques – convolutional neural networks, ResNets, object detection
  • Basic knowledge of linear algebra, calculus, and statistics (matrix manipulation, derivatives and integrals, statistical distributions, performance metrics)
  • Experience with PyTorch
  • Strong Python knowledge
  • Experience with Python data science stack – Pandas, Numpy, Scipy, Jupyter, data visualization
  • Experience putting deep learning models into production
  • Strong verbal and written skills, ability to communicate effectively with all levels throughout the organization and effectively present results
  • Results driven, with strong analytical and problem solving skills
  • Ability to read, discuss, and implement new research papers

Willingness to learn

  • Deep learning techniques for video data
  • Transformer based neural network architectures
  • SQL, Docker, REST APIs and a backend framework (e.g. Django, Flask) to access datasets.
  • Distributed training/inference management using cloud technologies like AWS, GCP, Azure.
  • Wastewater infrastructure inspection domain knowledge

About The Job

We are looking for an AI engineer to work on our entire machine learning pipeline. The ideal candidate should have a passion for AI and be ready to learn on the job. Deep learning is a rapidly evolving field, and working in AI is a process of constant learning and exploration – what is considered state of the art changes extremely quickly. We need someone ready to dive into the messy jungle of real world data, with all its noise, inconsistencies, and variation. You'll be working on the forefront of deep learning to solve novel problems and create robust production systems. Although we primarily work with videos, projects may involve other data types such as tabular and point cloud datasets.

Working alongside the AI Team, you will:

  • Analyze and manage data
  • Research and Experiment with new AI architectures and systems
  • Produce reports and visualizations depicting system performance
  • Assist in Managing the ML Production Pipeline
  • Collaborate to develop requirements
  • Participate in agile development process


SewerAI is applying AI to the massive problem of sewer overflows. Most people aren't aware but our sewer infrastructure is crumbling around us, leaking enough sewage nationwide to cover the entire SF bay area in 7" of raw sewage.

We are revolutionizing the antiquated industry by automating the labor intensive part of labeling cracks, roots and grease in pipeline inspection videos.

We are a Series A funded startup with a large and growing client base looking for a talented engineer to help improve our AI system.

Come join a startup that is solving a real world problem with AI.
