    Who are they?

    GoPro France is a research and development center in charge of everything related to image, from the camera part to the processing chip, including smartphone software.

    Our goal for next generation cameras is to keep improving the best image quality on the market and to make them smarter, capable of analyzing the current scene, its context and the user’s intent to automatically take decisions for a seamless user experience from capture to sharing videos with friends. New ways of capturing the moment emerge, such as 360 cameras.

    These technologies offer yet unexplored opportunities but offer new challenges in image quality and computer vision that need to be tackled to allow a wider public adoption.

    Job description

    GoPro delivers a set of world-class, cross platform, video editing applications on iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows that are collectively used by millions of people each month. These tools enable users to easily build incredible videos of their life events and share them with their family and friends.

    The Video Engine team provides the cross-platform engines that power each of the GoPro applications and cloud. Those tools assemble, filter and create video edits from a variety of user's media.

    • Prioritize features and pool requests based on the roadmap

    You will also be the referent responsible for integrating backend native modules within this framework:

    • Audio Engine: An advanced audio engine with multiple effects (mixing, ducking, dynamic compression, ...) that provides real-time, sample-exact playback audio on all platforms.
    • Cross platform tools: We develop core cross platform tools for use across the GoPro stack. Those include a video analysis and testing infrastructure, and various tools and libraries (logging, file management, ...).
