*Position:* Software Engineer, Device Calibration (Project Tango)
*Location:* Mountain View, CA, USA
*Type:* Full-Time
*Google Job Portable Posting:  *

*About Project Tango:*
The goal of Project Tango is to give a human-scale understanding of space
and motion to mobile devices. This includes phones, tablets, and virtual
reality headsets. Our team has been working with universities, research
labs, and industrial partners spanning many countries around the world to
build on the last decade of research in robotics and computer vision,
concentrating that technology into a mobile device. A Project Tango-enabled
device combines data from a fisheye camera, 3D depth sensor, and IMU
(gyroscopes and accelerometers) to track its own position and orientation
in the world, while also building a 3D representation of its surroundings.
This all happens on-device in real-time.

*About this Role:*
With so many different sensors working together to produce a single
cohesive estimate about the device and its surroundings, device calibration
is critical to Project Tango’s success. As a Software Engineer on Project
Tango’s calibration team, you will help support all aspects of device
calibration. This includes developing algorithms for calibrating devices,
designing automated workflows for calibrating devices on a high-throughput
production line, and analyzing existing datasets and devices to quantify
the effects of calibration on device performance.

- Be a technical contributor to an interactive C/C++ system.
- Participate in software architecture and design meetings.
- Work with an existing engineering team using an Agile-like process.
