In this position, you will be part of a highly talented, award-winning Silicon Valley team focused on developing cutting edge artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision-based medical technologies for the operating room and hospitals. The Stryker AI team comprises industry visionaries, scientists and engineers dedicated to developing technologies that change the way care is provided in the operating room, and you should be one of them. You will join a team that brought one of the first AI-driven medical devices to the operating room the Triton Blood Loss app and spawned an entirely new type of AI-enabled FDA-cleared medical device. You will help us with many new innovations in the works that need skilled, creative, and inventive people to make them a reality.
In this role, you will work along with a team of applied scientists, software engineer and clinical engineers to research, design, develop, and deploy computer vison and deep learning-based algorithms into existing and new medical device products. This is a unique, high visibility opportunity for a technical leader who wants to make business impacts, and dive deep into computer vision problems. We are particularly interested if you have experience productizing edge-based computer vision systems. In this role, you will be expected to deal with ambiguity! You will bring your outstanding analytical abilities and desire to work with cross-functional teams and systems. You are a self-starter and able to learn on the go.


  • You will lead, mentor and work with the team to design, prototype, evaluate, optimize, implement and deploy CV/DL algorithms as an integral part of AI-powered medical technologies for the operating room.
  • You will translate product feature requirements to design inputs / specifications and come up with high-level algorithmic designs to meet requirements and guide design tradeoff decisions.
  • You will research and prototype state-of-the-art computer vision and deep learning methods to develop solutions that meets product requirements.
  • You will design algorithm evaluation frameworks, schedule and report algorithm performance on a regular basis.
  • You will establish, develop and maintain procedures for camera / image sensor selection and evaluation of image quality monitoring in the target device.
  • You will optimize and deploy algorithms on target hardware platforms, such as tablets and edge-computing devices.
  • You will document and present progress in algorithm design, development, and evaluation (requirements/design/architecture/bugs/tests)
  • You will lead code reviews for projects/systems as an independent reviewer applying design principals, coding standards and best practices
  • You will hold the team accountable to deliver high quality results with passion, energy and drive to meet business priorities
