About Roboflow

We're on a mission to remove barriers that prevent developers from building their own computer vision applications. Roboflow streamlines the process of labeling, training, and deploying a computer vision model.

Why

Computer vision is going to transform every industry. We're already seeing this play out in fields like transportation (self driving cars), agriculture (drone spraying), and medicine (early stage cancer detection). But these superpowers shouldn't be locked up in the handful of giant technology companies that can afford to hire teams of machine learning PhDs.

What

Roboflow enables any developer to use computer vision without being a machine learning expert. Our product is the key missing infrastructure that allows developers turn raw images into a useful model -- replacing a sprawling list of one-off utils everyone previously had to reinvent and enabling our users to have working models in hours, not weeks.

For example, Sarah Hinkley from Barn Owl Drones uses vision to identify weeds from crops in drone images so her customers can use fewer herbicides and grow more. She's one of our over 50,000 users working on problems we couldn't even imagine when we got started!

Who

Today, Roboflow has eight full-time team members spread across the United States. Their roles range from machine learning to sales. We also have a high school software development intern, and a part-time employee researching our new signups. Kelo, Amanda's dog, is the best at frisbee among us.

We're united in our common goals to create high quality products and place our users first. Since we're a small upstart, that means building things really quickly and fixing bugs right away. As with any rapidly scaling startup, we hope to build a team that is both versatile and adaptable. This role has tremendous potential for growth. As such, we believe that coachability and enthusiasm are more important than experience or qualifications. If you’re excited about this opportunity, we want to hear from you.

We strongly encourage applicants from backgrounds that are traditionally under-represented in tech to apply - especially those who identify as Black, Latinx, Native American, Asian and/or LGBTQ+. People who identify as part of these groups have also been under-represented at Roboflow, but intentionally recruiting a team with unique backgrounds is one of several ways we are working to add more distinct viewpoints to our company.

Growth

Roboflow went from zero to over 20,000 users in 2020 (and now to over 50,000 in 2021) and our customers are requesting features and product enhancements faster than we can provide them.

We're starting to build out our engineering, marketing, and sales teams. As an integral part of our core team, all roles will inevitably involve wearing a lot of hats; we're specifically looking for people excited about learning new things and filling gaps where needed. And most importantly, we're looking for people who ship.

About the role

Overview

Computer vision is an emerging technology that will transform every industry. You can see this technology in use today in the automotive industry (self-driving cars), in agriculture (drone sprayers), and in the medical field (early-stage cancer detection). You can see some of the amazing applications users are building with computer vision here: https://universe.roboflow.com

Roboflow is on a mission to empower software developers to build computer vision applications. Our product streamlines the process of labeling, training, and deploying a computer vision model. Roboflow’s technology is used by students, researchers, and software developers at both small businesses and Fortune 500 companies.

You’ll also be joining a rapidly growing company. Roboflow has grown developer usage by more than 5x since YC Demo Day last fall. Tens of thousands of engineers build with us. Helping our users get the most out of Roboflow is essential to their success.

The product design team is looking for a visual designer to focus on our digital marketing design. At Roboflow, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside other design thinkers, software developers, and machine learning technologists to create the future of computer vision.

What You'll Do:

  • Define and expand standards for the Roboflow brand.
  • Craft visual concepts and graphic elements for our web properties, email campaigns, marketing materials, and events.
  • Maintain editable slide decks and marketing materials.
  • Use a content management system to update our .com site and blog.
  • Collaborate on vector icon styles and build user interface components for our Ringtail Design System.
  • Articulate design decisions and collaborate with teammates.
  • Advocate for consistent, thoughtful design throughout the org.

Note these responsibilities are just a start! Setting the standard for visual design at a young company means that you’ll do more than produce assets. You’ll play a key role in developing our brand strategy and usage principles, and you’ll have the ability to grow your skills across product, content, and marketing to build your dream role.

What You'll Need:

  • Passion for doing excellent design combined with strong layout and typography skills.
  • Ability to wrangle production work as needed. We’re a startup, and that means we need people who are ready to hop into the trenches to do foundational work.
  • Interest in technology and working with a distributed team.
  • Solid communication skills. Clarity in written communication and the ability to articulate needs with other teammates is key.
  • Previous experience with basic video animation or interest in growing this skill.
  • Familiarity with basic web design principles and a desire to learn Webflow. Prior experience maintaining static sites with no-code tools is helpful.
  • Relevant work experience: this may be 1–3 years of prior industry experience at a design firm, marketing agency, or software company, or a bachelor’s degree in graphic design or visual design

Most of all, you should have a learner’s mind. Each day, we’re growing as we uncover new ideas and better ways to work. If this sounds like you, but you don’t need all the criteria listed, we encourage you to apply anyway.

This job is about more than getting things done — it’s also about the people you’ll work with. You’ll be able to work directly with our company co-founders, Joseph and Brad. You’ll also gain exceptional mentoring for your design career by working one-on-one with Rachel, our head of product design, whose career has spanned the domains of product design, visual design, and applied design thinking while working at companies like a16z-backed Dwolla and publicly-traded Workiva. In short, you’ll have the opportunity to grow as a designer and try many new things while having an outsized impact on the growth of our company.

Please include a link to your online portfolio in your cover letter or resume. Applicants should have authorization to work in the United States.

At Roboflow, we believe in collectively building each other up and being our authentic selves at work. People from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in tech are encouraged to apply, especially those who identify as women, and/or Black, Latinx, Native American, Asian, and/or LGBTQ+.

Technology

Our goal is to build the world's best computer vision infrastructure so our users don't have to. This means we handle a lot of challenging complexities like seamlessly ingesting dozens of data formats, processing millions of images per day, and deploying auto-scaling machine learning infrastructure that can handle our customers' most demanding training and deployment needs.

Our core app sits atop Firebase with assistance from auto-scaling groups of Docker containers (for jobs like archiving datasets and training models). We also heavily lean on serverless infrastructure so we can gracefully deal with bursty traffic involved in manipulating datasets that can range anywhere from one hundred to one million images.

We also maintain a library of Colab notebooks our customers can use to train common computer vision models, a directory of public datasets, and a web of format specifications. We see building and supporting mini-projects like these that are helpful to the community at large as part of our role in democratizing computer vision.
