The team

From opto-mechanical engineers, laser technicians and computer vision experts to UX designers, product innovators and brand creators, Varjo is a supergroup made up of people with the passion, skills and vision to do things most people think are impossible.

Look a little closer and you’ll also find airplane builders, old-school PC demo sceners, trekkers, deep learning buffs and more.

Our skills and backgrounds are many. And together we’re revolutionizing what’s humanly possible with a new kind of immersive computing.

Here are a few of our key players.
