Data Annotation Lead at Starship
Tallinn, EE
Starship Technologies is developing the future of delivery – self-driving robots that will bring goods to people all around the world.
We have entered commercial pilots with hundreds of robots, driving along sidewalks across the United States and Europe. Soon there will be thousands and millions of robots around the world.
Autonomous driving is difficult. Our unstructured vibrant world is one of high complexity where anything can happen. If you’re inspired by helping to solve difficult problems that make a difference – this is the place for you.
We are looking for a Data Annotation Lead who will oversee data annotation activities related to our autonomous driving and object detection efforts. You will be responsible for giving the data input necessary for improving and developing algorithms and understanding the ways data can be used for predicting software performance and speeding up the development process.

More specifically, you will be thinking through the lens of data and managing data

    • Understanding the requirements of developers and fulfilling them efficiently
    • Making sure data is enriched in a way that it can give an adequate answer to the question/hypothesis
    • Identifying deficiencies in our knowledge and predicting future data needs
    • Doing annotations and looking at the ways our robot sees the world around it
    • Giving insights to developers that you learn from data
    • Managing our day-to-day activities with various service partners
    • Documenting, cleaning and organising our annotated datasets
    • Creating and improving tools and scripts (yourself or in co-operation with others) necessary for annotation processes

What you will need:

    • Strong analytic capabilities
    • An understanding of data-driven development
    • Diligence with sharp attention to detail
    • Project management and communication skills
    • High capacity for learning on the job
    • Basic understanding of computer vision and/or robotics
    • Good spoken and written communication in English
    • Previous experience with data management or in a technical field is a plus
    • Knowledge of Python, SQL or C++ is a big plus

We value our team and make sure that there are:
