Senior Computer Vision Engineer - Authentags at C2Sense

Watertown, MA, US

C2Sense uses nanotechnology to develop mobile sensing platforms that reveal a hidden world of information across applications in gas sensing, rapid medical diagnostics, and product authentication. As an MIT “Tough Tech” spinout, we are helping to solve some of the world’s most important challenges through the convergence of breakthrough science, engineering, and leadership. We a lean-agile organization which emphasizes purpose-driven discovery, work-life balance, and servant leadership. Our SAFe framework is critical in helping us to find alignment, focus our energies, and propel ourselves forward as a team. We are in search of kind, talented, and innovative individuals who believe that our technology will make the world a healthier, smarter, and safer place.

This role is part of our AUTHENTAGS team, which builds our anti-counterfeiting platform. Each year, millions of unsuspecting people bring potentially dangerous counterfeit products into their homes. Existing anti-counterfeiting tools are cumbersome, ineffective and easily compromised.  C2Sense’s technology platform, AuthenTags™, uses a smartphone with custom software to read invisible tags, transforming luminescent signatures into valuable authentication information. At its core, AuthenTags represents a fundamentally new way for the smartphone to interact with the world and equips consumers with a tool to regain confidence in the products they bring into their homes. Increased demand for digital retail (related to both COVID and market trends) has created a surge in online shopping, and a corresponding opportunity for counterfeiters. This risk to consumer and brand health has encouraged several Fortune 100 companies in the luxury goods and pharmaceutical industries to evaluate AuthenTags as a cutting-edge solution. If you’re motivated to resolve a global counterfeiting crisis, inspired to provide an accessible solution, and excited to drive innovation for the future of commerce, join us and be part of the team that launches AuthenTags.
