-We are developing holographic video software
-We are seeking modern C++ engineers to develop high-performance GPU--accelerated software
-Facility with mathematics is useful
-Experience with computer graphics is desirable, but not required

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 experienced software engineers to join us in building these next-generation technologies from the ground up. The ideal candidate has a demonstrated ability to design and build highly performant GPU-accelerated software. Fluency with C++ and CUDA, knowledge of computer graphics/rendering and familiarity with mathematics (such as geometry and linear algebra) are also helpful. You don’t need to be an expert in VR/AR, holography or video; we will help you become one.

We are hiring for multiple start dates and for both junior and senior roles.

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.

Culture & benefits:
-A positive, cooperative, and inclusive workplace
-Work-life balance: we value passion and dedication, but we are generally flexible about hours and remote work
-Competitive salary
-100% employer-paid health insurance for employees with 75% for dependents
-100% employer-paid vision and dental insurance for employees and dependents
-Flexible vacation policy

We welcome a wide variety of personal and professional backgrounds and consider applicants without regard to race, religion, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual identity or expression, medical condition, socioeconomic status, or any other category of experience. We're excited to learn what you can contribute to our supportive culture.

We're based in San Francisco with an office conveniently located in the SoMa/South Beach neighborhood.

We are filling positions in this role in late summer, 2018.
