We’re 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: we are building tools for the creation, manipulation, delivery and consumption of holographic video content. This will not only 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.

We are looking for mathematicians and computer scientists to help develop the algorithms driving these next-generation technologies.  We’re specifically looking for people with training in and experience working with deep fields, specifically: algebraic geometry, topos theory and/or cellular automata to join our team.

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

We are dedicated to a friendly, positive, cooperative and inclusive workplace environment. We value passion and dedication, but also work-life balance: we are generally flexible about hours and telecommuting. We offer competitive pay and benefits. We welcome diversity of personal and professional backgrounds, and hope you can contribute to our supportive culture.
