Archangel Imaging is a startup building AI-enabled camera systems for remote areas with poor connectivity. We solve the challenge of monitoring large remote areas, using our system, along with robots, drones, human teams, and a smart web dashboard to coordinate everything easily and quickly for different missions. We have worked on World Record projects and have developed unique machine vision payloads including a multi-spectral imagers featured at Dubai’s Robotics for Good award in Feb, 2017, Innovate 2017 exhibition and won the BT Augmented Intelligence award in 2018.


We are looking for a driven professional with experience delivering complete embedded devices, including hardware (mechanics, electronics) and software. Such devices will include our smart cameras and communications devices, capable of being deployed in remote places.

The ideal candidate will be very hands on, capable of prototyping devices, for example by designing circuits, selecting and integrating components, implementing software, selecting RTOS, and designing PCBs and 3D models. Production devices would be produced by partners, so the tech lead will own and manage the end-to-end partner delivery from requirements to acceptance.

Experience with IoT, wireless technology, computer vision and machine learning platforms would be highly beneficial. Depending on your specialities you could be contributing in other areas of the business.
