Join us in making holographic video a reality!

Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technologies open exciting new possibilities in communication and entertainment, offering to transform the way we interact with computers, each other, and the world. But there are still technological hurdles to overcome to make truly immersive photo-real content possible. Visby is solving these problems by reimagining the imaging stack from the ground up: we are building tools for the creation, manipulation, delivery and consumption of native holographic video content. This will enable mainstream adoption of VR/AR technologies, but will have wide-ranging impact in many fields, like computer vision. We’re working on deep technology, with broad and immediate reach.

The ideal candidate has experience and/or an advanced degree in a quantitative field (e.g., electrical engineering, applied mathematics, physics, computer science). Facility with Python is also required. Desirable: knowledge of or experience in one or more of the following fields: computer vision, quantum optics, deep learning, stochastic calculus, image processing, image/video compression, information/electrical engineering, and/or- signal processing.  

You will be an early hire at a fast-growing venture-funded company, so your position and role will grow with the company. You will have input into engineering processes and strategy and will help define the company’s culture.
