Meet the Company That’s Changing the Way We See Videos
The web is built on images and videos these days, but it can sometimes be hard to organize, categorize, or otherwise understand large swaths of multimedia “data.” That’s where Dextro comes in. As a computer vision company, the company has built a tool that allows developers and businesses to detect brands, scenes, and objects in a variety of visual contexts—and therefore draw more insights from those images.
For example, the team just launched Stream, a service that analyzes videos on Periscope and organizes them into trending topics based on the contents of the videos themselves, rather than unreliable user tags and captions.
Computer vision is a cutting edge technology, and staying ahead of the game takes an incredible team.
“We’re all committed to reaching our goals and making a difference—so each of us works really hard,” says Operations Manager Marj Berman.
And in return for their hard work? The team gets to work on challenges that truly excite them.
“My work at Dextro is really interesting, and it engages me every day. I rarely feel like I’m actually working, but rather I feel like I’m doing what I enjoy—while getting paid to do so,” explains Joe Quadrino, a data analyst.
Plus, the company has built a workplace in New York City that accommodates every type of worker. Team members can work from chair loungers or at standing desks. Dextro shares an incubator space with other ventures, so opportunities to socialize with other companies are built into communal spaces.
“As a small team, every effort matters, and there is nothing like pushing through a long day to realize how significantly your work has contributed to that day’s success,” explains Berman.
