Back End Developer
Osprey Informatics
Calgary, AB

Our Pitch

Our talented and energetic dev team is building a unique product at the intersection of some cutting-edge trends: machine learning, computer vision and distributed IoT computing. You will play a key role in growing the success of the Osprey Reach visual intelligence solution.

We’re offering the opportunity to dive into development on a complex platform that is evolving along with our customers’ demands for actionable industrial intelligence. If you have the experience and desire to build a robust, efficient system that can handle ever-increasing data flows, we have a challenge for you. The right candidate will combine technical skills with a pragmatic, mature approach to collaboration, decision-making and delivering value every sprint.

Our Tech

Osprey Reach controls a distributed network of cameras and sensors and is optimized for managing rich media across high-latency, low-bandwidth industrial contexts. The value is providing intelligent visual notifications of critical on-site events. To do this we employ cloud services and edge devices that ingest, analyze, store and manage gigabytes of images daily. We deploy on AWS, use Django/Python/Postgres for the back end and RESTful APIs to talk to our EmberJS front end. The machine learning algorithms run in Sagemaker. Our edge devices are ruggedized Linux boxes.

Our Company

We are a mid-stage startup with a real shipping product that has attracted a customer base of over 30 industrial companies and strong recurring SaaS revenue. As a result, we are looking to expand our team to seize the major opportunities in front of us.
