At Mojo, we’re inventing the future of computing – Invisible Computing – which imagines a world where information is there when you need it, technology fades away, and you can freely connect with others in a more meaningful and confident way. Our team includes talented professionals with expertise in product design, user experience, applied physics, hardware, software, optics, photonics, electronics, chemistry, biology and vision science. Together, we’re building Mojo Lens, a smart contact lens with a built-in display that gives you timely information without interrupting your focus. Mojo Lens elevates your vision by providing the information you need exactly when it's needed - all while letting you look like you.

We are looking for passionate software engineers to develop applications for our revolutionary product.  You will be an early member of a software team responsible for developing UI and logic to bring about an unparalleled experience to our users, for vision enhancement, augmented reality, and many other use cases.  You are primarily responsible for developing embedded applications leveraging your skills and experience in 2D or 3D graphics and spatial computing, and yet may also be involved in developing related cloud applications.  You thrive working in ambiguous new product categories by collaborating with others and leading initiatives to drive for smart and robust software solutions.
