Placemeter uses public video feeds and computer vision algorithms to create a real time data layer about places, streets, and neighborhoods. 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. Placemeter is a TechStars NY Spring 2013 company, the winner of the 2013 WebSummit startup competition, and recently graduated from the New York Times TimeSpace program. We're backed by NEA, Triplepoint Capital and a few other investors and were recently selected as a Time Inc. Top 10 NYC Startups. Working at Placemeter Team At Placemeter our mission is to make cities better. With that in mind, we hire from all different backgrounds. Our dynamic team includes former urban planners, Bloomberg City Hall staffers, Googlers, engineers, graphic designers, and a lot of people passionate by leveraging technology to build better cities. Office Our HQ is located in the trendy SoHo neighborhood of downtown Manhattan, and features an open loft-style space with high ceilings flooded with natural light. Each employee chooses their own custom computer and desk setup. Perks Our founders, Alex and Florent, believe that hard work should be rewarded and lead the office in weekly team lunches, monthly happy hours, and an annual off-site (last one was at the beach in Montauk). Brooklyn roasted artisanal coffee brews all day and we always have healthy office snacks on hand yet very often sweet treats appear in the kitchen. The team enjoys a competitive, yet healthy, FIFA habit on our PS4. Benefits We have a generous four week vacation policy and top-tier health insurance options.
