Job description

Redefining computing with seamlessly merging virtual, mixed and traditional reality takes us on a path of solving unique design and engineering challenges in areas such as rendering, interactions, 3D graphics engines and windowing.

You will be working as part of our core engineering team focused on building the Varjo XR software stack user interface. Your role will focus on working with interaction and input technologies as part of bringing our computing platform vision to life.

  • 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.

Requirements

  • Fluent with creating JS and C/C++ based desktop user interfaces with working history of over 7 years. Experience from TypeScript or VR application development can be seen as a bonus.
