Job description
Bay Labs is at the forefront of bringing deep learning advances to cardiovascular imaging to improve heart health worldwide.

Our mission is to make medical imaging universally accessible to improve wellness and healthcare. To achieve this, we’ve assembled a team of domain experts in machine learning, visual neuroscience, physics, medical devices, and cardiology. As an early-stage employee, you will have the opportunity to make tremendous impact while tackling critical unsolved areas in healthcare.

We are looking for an experienced engineer who has demonstrated capabilities to scientifically develop, benchmark, and validate a wide variety of deep neural network architectures for the purpose of extracting clinically-relevant knowledge from medical images.


Develop state-of-the-art and novel deep neural network architectures.

Develop training and testing pipelines to assess the performance of these architectures on clinically-relevant image processing tasks.

Keep up with deep learning literature in order to implement the latest techniques into our networks and pipelines.

Read relevant medical literature to be able to develop sound validation procedures/metrics.

Develop machine-learning algorithms on a breadth of software frameworks (Keras, TensorFlow, PyTorch, sci-kit-learn) and deploy on a diversity of hardware platforms (Titan X/Xp/V GPUs, chips for embedded applications like Nvidia’s Jetson TX2 platform).

Help disseminate theoretical and practical ideas in Deep Learning and Machine Learning to the rest of the team.

Skills & requirements
Master or Ph.D. in Computer Science, Physics, Neuroscience, Statistics, Mathematics or related fields.

5+ years of combined academic and/or industry experience in training, testing, developing, and analyzing deep neural networks (recurrent, convolutional, spatiotemporal, attention-based).

Demonstrated experience in implementing and tuning custom neural network layers and losses based on literature to extend capabilities of existing deep learning frameworks.

Deep theoretical and practical knowledge of machine learning principles and deep neural network techniques (like types of activation functions, pooling methods, 3D separable convolutional layers, use of inference acceleration frameworks, network compression/pruning/quantization techniques, etc...).Knowledge of computer vision and image processing techniques and methods.

Mastery of Python and the Python scientific stack (numpy, scipy, matplotlib, pandas, sci-kit-learn, sci-kit-image, etc...).

Advanced expertise with at least one major deep learning framework (Tensorflow, Keras, PyTorch, Torch, Caffe2, CNTK). Bonus: accepted contributions to one or more of these frameworks.

Experience with writing production code and the code review process.

Strong teamwork ethic, passion for learning, and desire to seek new challenges.

Bonus: Knowledge of C++ in an industry context is a plus.

Bonus: Experience in a startup environment is a plus.

Bonus: Publications in top-tier relevant journals or conferences is a plus.
