The KakaoBrain, Seoul office, is looking for exceptional engineers/scientists
to work on exciting drone projects. We have multiple openings on machine
perception where the primary tasks are to tackle the challenging, perception
problems for autonomous drone flight. 

A successful candidate should have 

 1) Good understanding on one of the related fields for drone / mobile-robot
perception / machine learning, 
 2) Demonstrable record of software development experiences, and 
 3) Good communication skills. 

Any advanced understanding or knowledge and/or hand-on experience on
computer vision and machine learning would be seriously considered. For the
experience on software development, it’d be perfect if a candidate can share
with us any of his prior codes, for example, through the Github. As we
believe, it’s important for an engineer to effectively and efficiently
communicate in verbal and written form about his/her
designs/products/modules as well as producing codes, a desired candidates
should have strong skills in presenting and documenting his/her ideas and/or
products. 

*About Us:* 
KakaoBrain was established in March, 2017 to develop technology, service and
business through future core technology development related to AI and
Robotics. KakaoBrain is a subsidiary of Kakao Corp., a Korean mobile company
that has developed a free mobile instant messaging application (called
“KakaoTalk”), used by 93 % of smartphone owners in South Korea, available in
15 languages and used in over 230 countries. Kakao Corp. has also provided
users a large range of services including games and retail commerce. 

KakaoBrain is located in Pan-Gyo Techno Valley in South Korea, which is
called Korean Silicon Valley. The team of DeepDrone (Deep Learning + Drone)
at KakaoBrain would like to contribute to the development of technologies
such as agriculture, and construction through data acquisition via
autonomous aerial flight as well as a selfie drone.
