IPVM is looking for a talented individual with high intelligence, specifically quantitative and mathematical abilities, to join IPVM, the world’s leading video surveillance research firm, as a research engineer.
In this role, you will be able to make an immediate impact contributing to IPVM’s world-leading research, testing, and education. This role is based in IPVM’s Bethlehem, PA research facility.
There are 3 key requirements for this position:
- Ethics: We maintain high ethics and care about finding and reporting what is right. While our compensation is competitive, making money should not be your main motivator. You should have a strong sense of ethics.
- Technology: While a background in video surveillance is not required for this role, you will need to have some fundamental education in technology (e.g., computer science or engineering courses, artificial intelligence, software development, robotics experience, etc.). The research that we do focuses on technology, so you need to be able to understand, assess, and debunk technological claims.
- Academic Achievements: IPVM’s work requires academic rigor. We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate a track record of strong academic performance. Examples include: a high college GPA, academic awards, exceptional standardized test scores (95% percentile), etc.
You would spend your days planning and conducting video surveillance product tests at our Bethlehem, PA office as well as contributing to the writing of IPVM member reports. This is a dynamic position with considerable upward potential.
At IPVM, you will work alongside some of the best and brightest in the industry (including alumni from Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale, Harvard, UPenn, West Point, NYU, and more) and join us in the fight for ethical use of video surveillance.
IPVM is the world’s leading resource on security and video surveillance, providing news, reviews, training, and independent test results on access control, alarm systems, cameras, recorders, VMS and more.
IPVM research and reporting has been cited by the U.S. Government’s Congressional-Executive Commission on China (CECC) as well as major news publications, including: The NY Times, WSJ, Forbes, CNN, BBC, Bloomberg Reuters, Financial Times, FP, The Intercept, Fast Company, and PCMag.
