Senior Camera Architect Engineer Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineer high-profile consumer electronics. Lab126 began in 2004 as a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc., originally creating the best-selling Kindle family of products. Since then, we have produced groundbreaking devices like Fire tablets, Fire TV and Amazon Echo. What will you help us create?
The Role: As key part of the camera team, you will be driving the camera specification and architecting camera solutions that will delight our customers. Candidate will be heavily involved in all aspects of camera development, including module design activities and manufacturing process. Develop core intellectual properties and define imaging platform and roadmap. The candidate will drive alignment with device cross-functional teams for camera function and drive the successful integration of camera module into device system design. Responsibilities: The candidate will be responsible to define and architect new camera module design for advanced product lines. The candidate will need to colloborate with various camera lens, sensor, and ISP vendors and influence their roadmaps. The candidate will be responsible for all imaging aspects of camera modules and can independently design and implement imaging algorithms, as well work with early prototypes of imaging systems. The candidate should also be working closely with the FW team to implement image quality tuning and new imaging algorithms such as auto-focus, auto-white balance, auto-exposure, high dynamic range, still and video image stabilization, face tracking and computer vision. The candidate needs to be strong effective communicator for both verbal and written communications and needs to be independent, highly motivated individual. Other responsibilities include: Develop system architectures and develop camera roadmap. Generate technical white papers. Generate electronic schematics. Contribute to a multi-disciplinary team.
