View Full Job Details

Archangel Imaging is a startup developing distributed intelligence and advanced unmanned camera systems. We have worked on World Record projects and have developed unique machine vision payloads including edge AI devices featured at BT Augmented Intelligence 2018 (winner), Dubai’s Robotics for Good award in 2017 (finalist) and at Innovate 2017 exhibition.

Our mission is to help organisations gain and manage easily machine vision capability on edge devices deployed in remote areas, such as in automated search and rescue operations, sea crime monitoring and environmental protection missions. Our products combine cutting-edge machine learning with specialist cameras, advanced communication terminals and different levels of swarm intelligence to meet this challenge.

You will be our hardware hero, responsible for delivering complete embedded devices (prototype to production stage). Strong hands-on experience with hardware (mechanics & electronics), plus awareness of embedded software, are key as you will own the end-to-end design, prototyping, development and manufacturing.

You will be working with your small team, contractors and suppliers, making AI-enabled smart cameras and wireless communications devices. The challenge is to enable real-time monitoring and alerts in remote areas to protect: lives, wildlife and assets. International travel for trials and demonstrations may be required.
