Operation Manager for Data Annotation Department

Mobileye

  • Full Time

At Mobileye, we foster a hybrid-friendly environment, combining work from office and home.

Which department will you join?
High-quality labeled datasets for supervised and semi-supervised machine learning algorithms are required for training, testing, benchmarking, research, and exploration of the algorithms. As those are usually difficult and expensive to produce because of the large amount of time needed to label the data, and with the fact that the source of the datasets is captured by proprietary Mobileye cameras and fusion sensors, we built and perfect a process and an operation to deploy, annotate, label, and consume large volumes of big data.
 
Data Annotation Department Goals:
The role of the Data Labeling department is to provide annotated images and videos for the Algorithms and Validation teams as well as tier1 (working with car manufacturers and automakers) according to client’s requirements
The labeling work is done by workers abroad in an intensive operation (thousands of workers) and with a very large-scale budget under the supervision of in-house, local staff.
To increase productivity, streamline the work and gain focus, the operation is divided into technologies teams. Each one is specifying and specializes in a specific area like vehicles, pedestrians, traffic signs, traffic lights, visual road marks, mapping, etc.
The department runs the entire process. Starting from understanding the customer needs, compiling a set of rules, building the process, procedure, and methodology, deploying the task, monitoring the process, striving to improve quality and productivity, providing coherency, reliably and up-to-date status, and report outs to stakeholders and retrospective.
