Office life

Hierarchy is great when you’re running a factory or an army. But when you’re a hardware and software company that’s changing VR and how the world computes, it’s not.

We only recruit the most intelligent, talented and legendary people on the planet, so assigning them a seat and telling them what to do would be a huge waste of their value and our time.

  • Freedom It’s like the famous Finnish F1 driver Kimi Räikkönen once said: “Just leave me alone, I know what I’m doing.” No one’s going to tell you how to do your job. You know best.
  • Salary You can’t put a price tag on passion, but still. We’ll show you how much we value your skills and dedication to your craft.
