The team behind the tech.

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.

Meet Varjo’s visionaries.

All of us at Varjo are on a mission to empower people to do and see things that are impossible today by erasing the lines between virtual, augmented and traditional realities.

Our skills and backgrounds are many. And together we’re revolutionizing what’s humanly possible with a completely new kind of immersive computing – first for professionals and ultimately for everyone. When we’re done, computers will look nothing like they do right now.

Here are some of the people making our vision a reality.
