Computer Vision Engineering Roles Experience / Remote possibilities


I am a computer vision engineer with 8 years relevant experience in vision / mixed reality and autonomous cars. While I have a classic (slam, 3d reconstruction, ml) focus I also have 3 years relevant hands on in deep learning (semantic segmentation, 3d object detection, camera+lidar).

I find it difficult to find jobs in Europe and have the impression US companies have been hiring like crazy remote workers, and continue to do so for ML/AR despite hiring freezes in core areas.

What is your experience as a vision / ai developer? Do you find it hard to find work, especially remote? If not, do you apply directly to job ads or reach out to interesting companies? Do you have a PhD or are you seen as a high achiever personality? What is your typical downtime between jobs and what location are you based in?
