5 months ago | hide
Standard Cognition - San Francisco | 130 - 175K + Equity | Infrastructure and HPC | Full-time Onsite

Standard is building the future of retail with autonomous checkout. Our 100% machine vision based system allows shoppers to walk in, grab stuff, and leave, without ever having to wait in a line or scan an item. We figure out what they grab and seamlessly charge them.

We have designed our system from the ground up to be deployable to millions of retailers without major renovations. We are running our own test store here in San Francisco and are rolling out to multiple retailers around the globe.

Help us build the state-of-the-art systems that make this possible!
