About Uncanny.gg (Pivan Interactive, Inc.)
Uncanny uses cutting edge computer vision and machine learning to provide dynamic and functional training for eSport centric games. We are an Angel and VC backed startup based in Boulder, Colorado, building the “gym equipment” for the competitive eSports athlete. There are an enormous amounts of job offerings in the computer vision/machine learning/deep learning/A.I. space right now, but why be boring? Nearly none of them are in an industry as vibrant, fun, and engaging as Gaming and eSports, with a core culture based on entertainment and personality.
We are participating in the Techstars and Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs program in Philadelphia, on a three-month adventure to complete our build of the very best eSports coaching and data analytics platform on the market today.
