Rehumanize Retail.Join Standard.

Jobs at Standard Cognition

We’re building autonomous checkout for brick and mortar retail. Shoppers can walk in, grab what they want, and get checked out just by leaving the store. Say goodbye to waiting in line, scanning your items, and moving them from one bag to another. We want to make shopping in a retail store more like picking an apple from a tree.

What We Do

We equip retail stores with ceiling mounted cameras and the hardware and software necessary for autonomous checkout. Pixels come into our system, and inventory comes out. Only with the latest techniques in deep learning and computer vision is this possible. We operate on the cutting edge of research and push our software and hardware to their limits.

Our Mission

We believe that computer vision is the next major revolution in software, and our goal is to deliver the promise of computer vision to the world. What happens when computers can see and understand the world as well as us? The answer is a transformation across every industry as impactful as the advent of the information age itself. Our mission is to deliver the promise of computer vision everywhere, throughout our lives, and to do it in a way that is safe, democratic, and privacy preserving. Ultimately we can’t realize the future if we don’t trust it. At Standard we believe that privacy must be built into the fabric of our systems from day one to create the future we’re dreaming of. That means no facial recognition, no invasive biometrics, and overall transparency on how our technology works.

Our Opportunity

We have the chance to change the face of retail worldwide. Today, we are actively deploying our product to the US, Japan and Europe. Retail is a $27 trillion market, our retail partners have thousands of storefronts that we need to outfit. And the fun part: we’re just getting started.

We’re grateful for all the support we’ve had so far: we’ve raised over $51M in financing and are backed by many of Silicon Valley’s leading investors including CRV, Initialized, and YCombinator.


Office kitchen

Standard offers competitive compensation and equity, a comprehensive healthcare plan, fully-catered lunches, and commuter benefits at one of the fastest-growing startups in Silicon Valley. Most importantly, our bedrock value is providing a learning environment where all employees can dive deep into the latest computer vision and machine learning technologies. If this sounds like a good fit, we’d love to hear from you.
