Hardware Engineer

job summary:
Lyft is searching for a hands-on engineer to debug the imaging signal processing (ISP) pipeline for our cameras on our next generation vehicles. As an ISP engineer you will work with various SW tools (Matlab or python) to assess the image quality of our cameras based on various ISP tuning parameters generated. This position is an opportunity to combine laboratory testing with physics-based analysis and real world testing (ambient lighting, objects in shadows, calibrated targets with low-contrast).
