VR/AR Software Engineer (Systems & Design)
About the Company: Three Space Lab is an early-stage MIT Media Lab spin-off company working on VR and AR software solutions for education, training, and workplace learning, with a focus on uses of interactive simulation. Some previous projects have focused on electricity and magnetism, crystalline structures, 3D scanning, and tools for visual design of brands. We are a team of designers and engineers focused on building world-class collaborative spatial computing systems. Our work builds on years of experience in multi-user virtual reality and scientific visualization.
About the Team: We are math and physics geeks with an artsy side (dance, drawing, music), and we welcome people of any gender, race, ethnicity, color, ability, class, religion, culture, or nationality. We believe that working with people who have diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds enhances our ideas, enriches our lives as individuals and as a team, and is invaluable for understanding how we can best have a positive impact.
We are committed to diversity on our team and we encourage people from all backgrounds, cultures, underrepresented groups, and marginalized gender and sexual identities to apply!
