We are looking for a fantastic Senior Systems Engineer to help us build the technology to create a new “operating system” for cities, solving congestion, prioritising walking and cycling, and eliminating accidents.

About Vivacity

At Vivacity Labs, we make cities smarter. We provide the operating system for road transport, helping cities apply modern technology to problems like congestion, air pollution, and adapting to the autonomous vehicle transition.

This starts with our computer vision-based sensors, which provide real-time data to understand accident blackspots, inform infrastructure changes, and support autonomous vehicles. This data is fed into our cutting-edge Reinforcement Learning algorithms for traffic lights to prioritise cyclists and reduce congestion.

We are a fast-growing, 70-person startup, with a presence in most major cities across the UK. Following £5m of investment earlier this year, we are doubling the size of our team, including heavy investment in technology. Join us to help our ultimate goal to make the European vision of a Smart City - one which makes the city work for the community.

About the role

We are currently rolling out thousands of sensors across the UK, Europe and beyond, and seeking a passionate Systems Engineer to join our team. This role will have the opportunity to develop and deliver cutting-edge technology on projects that help deliver a societal benefit, while internally working alongside a world leading AI research team.

You will have a key role in developing our new sensor hardware as we move to the latest generation of GPU accelerated edge processing hardware. You will be able to see the results of your work deployed across thousands of locations in the UK and around the world.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is interested in real-world application of technology to join a fast-growing technology company and apply their knowledge and skills to the development of our cutting-edge, AI-enabled products.

Vivacity welcomes applications from all candidates and embraces diversity within our teams. If you are in any doubt as to whether you would be a good fit, please get in touch, or apply anyway and we will get back to you. We look forward to hearing from you!
