Job Description


V-Nova, a London based IP and software company, is dedicated to improving data compression by building a vast portfolio of innovative technologies based on the game-changing use of AI and parallel processing for data, video, imaging, and point cloud compression, with applications across several verticals. This is achieved through deep-science R&D (1000+ international patents) and the development of products that test, prove, and continuously enhance the technology portfolio.


V-Nova has contributed part of its IP to drive standardization of two video codec formats, MPEG-5 Part 2 (LCEVC (Low Complexity Enhancement Video Coding)), a low-complexity enhancement video and imaging codec, and SMPTE VC-6 (ST-2117), a high-performance AI-based video and imaging codec. V-Nova has developed multiple award-winning software products to kickstart the ecosystems for its technologies and allow their immediate deployment, addressing use cases in TV, media, entertainment, social networks, eCommerce, ad-tech, security, aerospace, defence, automotive and gaming.


We rely on the talent of our high-performing diverse teams to provide innovative solutions and deliver what we promise. We have worked hard to create a company where talented, passionate people can thrive in a culture that values individual empowerment and excellence and achieves through teamwork. We are constantly on the lookout for exceptional individuals who thrive on solving challenging problems and want to make an impact. With ground-breaking technology, a fast-paced collaborative environment and major growth plans, there has never been a more exciting time to join us.




V-Nova has created multiple compression standards, such as MPEG-5 LCEVC and SMPTE VC-6 ST2117, as well as proprietary point-cloud compression technologies such as V-Nova PresenZ. V-Nova is also developing implementations of encoders and decoders for these standards, targeting a wide variety of applications. Key to this technically focussed product role is the realisation of the go-to-market strategy for some of these implementations by V-Nova.
