Image Processing Engineer

imgix is looking for a graphics-minded engineer to join our image processing team. In this role, you will work closely with the larger Infrastructure team which builds and operates the high-performance, high-availability image platform that powers image delivery for some of the largest sites on the internet. 

The imaging team is responsible for every single crop, resize, mask, and transformation of the billions of images we serve every day. You will be working on the core of our imaging service, which will give you the opportunity to impact every image we serve as well as influence future direction in our image operations. 


About you:

  • Interested in images and other media formats
  • Self starter - you must be able to take projects or features, break them down, and drive them to a proper conclusion
  • 2+ year(s) of experience with image processing algorithms and image file format APIs
  • Proficient in C/C++
  • Experience with macOS and/or Linux
  • Nice to have: Familiarity with image recognition or computer vision, knowledge of Python or Lua, experience programming GPUs

 

About the role:

  • Research and implement algorithms for image transformations with an eye towards performance and compression
  • Stay abreast of developments in the image processing space, including image formats, computer vision, and new hardware
  • Make recommendations on new image operation features and how they would interact with existing implementations
  • Help architect and maintain cross-platform development and compatibility

 

imgix is building the future of visual media on the Internet. imgix operates the premier solution to deliver impactful, engaging, highly responsive and super fast imagery to eyeballs around the world. Our service consists of a top tier image delivery platform tightly coupled with imgix's proprietary, on-demand image processing pipeline. It provides customers with great design flexibility while reducing the engineering investment required to serve state-of-the-art visual media. imgix enables our customers to greatly increase the value of their imagery and get back to building awesome things.

We are located in downtown San Francisco, close to BART, Caltrain, and a really good sandwich place. Employee benefits are comprehensive (401k, medical, dental and vision), perks are generous (catered lunches, paid rides home, the occasional team outing), vacation time is flexible, and salaries are commensurate with experience. We also provide employees with anything they (reasonably) need to be effective in their work: funky keyboards, standing desks, a desk cactus, and maybe even a laptop. The troposphere is the limit.
