About Satva Designs
Satva Designs is a California software company that applies advanced machine learning and AI research to solve everyday problems. Our cloud based products polish raw videos into a refined product that is more enjoyable for viewers. We have deep expertise in Machine Learning, AI and Mathematics and software engineering and have consulted with and developed prototypes for several Silicon valley giants.
The company was founded in 2005 by Dr. Binu Mathew to commercialize his Ph.D. research in low-power hardware for computer vision and speech recognition: The Perception Processor. Dr. Ali Ibrahim, currently a Fellow at AMD was a co-founder. In the decade that followed, Satva has focused on software products and consulting services while our parent company Kraenion develops hardware-software solutions for industrial robotics and autonomy.
Binu MathewBinu served as a Senior Scientist in Apple's Exploratory Design Group for 10 years during which he invented and prototyped far-out technologies and lead the rapid transition of technology solutions to products. While most of his work is "classified", he designed the key algorithms for image registration that made HDR photography on the iPhone possible. He architected machine learning software (specifically, the predecessor of this API) that shipped on millions of Apple devices. He was also the architect of low-power ML hardware blocks present on some iPhone and Apple Watch SoCs. Prior to Apple, Binu founded Satva Designs, a machine learning software company.
Binu received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Utah and did post-doctoral research at Stanford University. His dissertation focused on computer architecture for accelerating vision and speech recognition.

Make your own job title
We are a small team looking for exceptional members. We like passionate, driven, quirky, whacky, people who are a bit different. If you have been blamed for being too rational, too results oriented, or having too refined a sense of aesthetics and design you will fit right in. Non-traditional educational backgrounds are welcome. The being exceptional part is non-negotiable.
