Senior Computer Vision Engineer, Visual SLAM

At Varjo we create hardware and software experiences to fulfill our vision of immersive computing. The mixed reality experiences we are creating will empower each of us to be more creative and more productive.

We are offering you an exciting position where you can see into the future and play your part in shaping it. When we are done, computers will look nothing like what they do right now.

Job description

A device with eyes and other sensors is virtually useless without the capability of understanding the surrounding environment in a similar fashion as we humans do. Creating this capability is where you come into the picture.

We at Varjo are looking for a senior computer vision engineer to join our Computer Vision team working on visual SLAM.

You will be working with a top notch team that aims at creating a visual SLAM system which accuracy and robustness matches that of Varjo's unique human eye resolution display.

You not only follow scientific publications related to this topic, but you also enjoy solving complex real world problems and getting those solutions in the hands of real users.

Our scientists, developers, designers and HW engineers are world-class in what they do, and we want you to aim at the same level.

This is a full-time position located in Helsinki but you are free to work remotely from anywhere in Finland. This can be a few days a week or 100% remote. We support you in being productive in the way that is best suited for you.

If you're based somewhere else at the moment, we will also gladly help with relocating to Finland and make your move to the capital of the world's happiest and cleanest country as easy as possible.


  • Research, develop, implement and optimize algorithms and software solutions related to visual SLAM and localization
  • Create production level code that is elegant and maintainable
  • Take accountability for solutions that are modular and testable. Have pride for building unit and regression testing to prove that your code and solutions truly work
  • Work closely with hardware and other software engineering teams on tech selections and solutions
  • When necessary debug, optimize and aspire to make things pixel-perfect. Be willing to spend time in making things truly amazing, not just great


  • Hands-on experience in one or more of the following areas: SLAM, dense mapping, 3D-reconstruction, feature (eye, pose, gesture, object) tracking, image segmentation, scene understanding, 3D/mesh model compression
  • Fluent in C/C++ with at least 4 years of experience writing production level code
  • Track record of shipping working code and solutions based on your ideas
  • Team player, ability to perform in cross functional teams and to share knowledge to others
  • Good communication skills in English

We offer

  • The possibility to shape the future by pushing the boundaries of what's achievable with the current state of the art mixed reality technology
  • Startup culture with minimal bureaucracy and maximum opportunity for you to take charge of your work
  • The possibility to select the tools and methods you want to use in order for you to do your job effectively
  • Competitive salary and reward plan to share the success
  • Premium employee medical coverage with life insurance and disability benefits
