Project Manager


Dynamic, growing machine learning software company seeks experienced project manager to lead research & development project efforts.

Who is CoVar?

We are a small band of researchers, engineers, and software developers who love what we do and are looking for others to join us. We are at the cutting edge of machine learning and computer vision and constantly striving to understand more and do more. We conduct research and develop software products for many different customers. Some of our customers look to us to find bad guys and bad things in military sensor data—helping to keep our nation and our servicemembers safe.  Other customers need help finding new cures for diseases hidden across existing biomedical databases—saving the lives of those stricken with rare diseases.  And other customers use our products to monitor machinery and workers in the energy sector, preventing injuries and environmental catastrophes.  We stop bad stuff from happening.

What is it like to work with us?

Every one of us is absolutely passionate about what we do, and this passion is infectious. We love to debate new ideas on their merits—our white boards are constantly in use. We love to see if our ideas will work and are constantly experimenting, prototyping, and tweaking. We enjoy working on a variety of projects—which makes it fun to have many customers with varied problems. Some of our work is heady research, some is fast-paced product development. The most interesting projects are both.
