About Us

At Hayden AI, we are on a mission to harness the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning to transform the way governments and businesses address real-world challenges.

From optimizing bus lane and bus stop enforcement to pioneering digital twin modeling and beyond, our innovative mobile perception system empowers our clients to accelerate transit, enhance street safety, and drive forward a sustainable future.

What the job involves

As an Engineering Manager, you will lead the development and refinement of a cutting-edge perception system, leveraging deep learning for real-world applications. Your expertise in applying computer vision in real-time production systems and team leadership will drive performance improvements and seamless integration across the company.


  • Oversee the device perception application development life cycle, from problem definition to deployment and ongoing improvement.

  • Lead a team of experienced software engineers to develop and refine the system in a hands-on manner.

  • Spearhead the integration of robust computer vision algorithms for object detection, tracking, semantic segmentation, and classification to run on an edge device.

  • Champion the development of algorithms on the edge for complex urban scene understanding.

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams (cloud/system) for seamless integration and monitoring of perception models.

  • Analyze data to identify performance bottlenecks and opportunities for enhancing the perception system.

  • Foster automation for continuous testing and release of our device application software.

  • Communicate technical findings and insights effectively to stakeholders across the company to drive performance improvements.


  • Ph.D. or Master's in Robotics, Computer Vision, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or a related field.
