About The Position

My company, getvermeer.com, is building technology for automatic change detection and reconstruction in 3D photogrammetry maps. The ultimate goal is to be able to not only detect if a given part of the environment is different from the last time it was mapped, but also create a navigation plan that allows the drone to take pictures in an optimal position to perform the reconstruction offline in photogrammetry software.

Our main customer right now is the DoD. We have won 5 large contracts in our first year working with this customer and we are about to close a large round of investment.

We have just raised several million dollars from a VC fund founded by Defense experts who started a billion-dollar DoD company. This has given us a lot of confidence in our business and products.
