If you’d like to develop amazing tech like Content-Aware Fill & bring it to millions of people, the Photoshop team may have a job for you. They’re looking for an experienced imaging engineer to fill the role of Senior Computer Scientist (req. #13612).
I love working with brainiacs like this, and we have a great track record or productizing research (off the top of my head in the last couple of revs of Photoshop: Content-Aware Fill, Content-Aware Scale, advanced blurring, improved sharpening, Puppet Warp, Auto-Align/Auto-Blend Layers, adaptive wide-angle lens correction, and more). I think you’d really enjoy working with the Photoshop team to put cutting-edge ideas into practice.
