Help us grow into an ever-evolving marketplace. Seeking a reliable and organized Data Annotation Analyst!

WHAT WE DO
Betterview, a San Francisco and San Diego-based company building insight through aerial imagery and machine learning, is looking for a [Job Title] to help tell the world about its industry-leading Enterprise SaaS platform.

Every day, our team is focused on the needs of our customers. We strive to earn their trust by providing valuable, accurate insight that is important to their businesses. We provide our customers with information that is not only useful to their business decisions but is easy to use. We combine high quality human interactions with sleek, intuitive design and are pioneers on the journey alongside our customers, who are transforming the way they do business with data-driven decision-making.

THE OPPORTUNITY
Betterview’s Machine Vision team maintains an ever-expanding suite of computer vision models to detect property conditions and identify risk factors using aerial imagery.
