Job Title: Data Engineer I
We are looking for a short term contractor to help coordinate several data annotation projects. We currently have several data annotation efforts underway to label image data. This labeling is being done by annotation providers and we need someone to organize and carry out these efforts in coordination with the providers. The coordination work will involve tasks like selecting which images will be sent to the labeling service, using some automated selection and some hand selection, generally coordinating the data and annotation efforts, as well as helping to create high-quality example annotations of the images. The overall goal is to use the labeling resources efficiently to create large high-quality training sets for training computer vision models.
Skills: In terms of implementation, this will involve writing SQL queries to discover, evaluate, and select good images to send for labeling, as well as writing python scripts to do things like automatically select relevant images based on associated text meta-data, or run existing visual recognition models on large datasets of images.
Good candidates should be detail oriented, able to organize multiple annotation efforts over large amounts of data, and have 2+ years experience writing python and SQL.
Education: BS/MS in Computer Science or a related technical field
