Tired of building incremental products and services? Tired of cookie cutter startups? Looking to make a real impact? Come join Placemeter to change the way the world functions. Seriously.

We use computer vision at a massive scale, on a large number of rich and ubiquitous video feeds, to understand what is going in in the physical world in real time. We measure how busy places are, what people do, how fast cars go, and much more. We offer that data to developers, citizens, cities, and retailers, radically changing the way they interact with the physical world.

We built our platform around privacy. We never store any video and we do not identify people. We also make sure no one can reverse engineer our data to identify anyone. We are backed by top NYC & Silicon Valley VCs, are alumna of TechStars (Spring 2013), and actively plugged into their vibrant ecosystem of mentors and alumni.

Working at Placemeter, you will benefit from a dynamic environment where we work hard, trust each other, and know how to celebrate our wins! We offer full benefits, French sweets and pastries, French wine, French soccer games, and regular, fun outings.

We need creative and flexible minds, with a complete commitment to building nothing else but perfect software and systems. Make a real impact on your city, the NYC tech community, and a fast growing startup. Put your mark on this truly disruptive, slightly crazy, and ambitious platform we are building.

Placemeter is in a phase of rapid expansion, and we want you to join us.

Placemeter uses public video feeds and computer vision algorithms to create the first ever, real time layer of data about places, streets and neighborhoods.

Using proprietary computer vision algorithms, Placemeter can count the number of people that walk by a billboard or estimate how many people are in a restaurant, at a beach or park, or in a store. Placemeter can even detect speeding cars in a neighborhood. Information like weather and local events are factored in to refine predictions pertaining to these measurements.

Placemeter's founder has a PhD in computer vision and successfully exited his previous company. The cofounder had stints at Gilt Groupe and himself started 2 companies prior to Placemeter.

While some companies are busy building the internet of things, Placemeter is building the first ever internet of places.
