Spatial

Full-time
Customer

Company Description:

Spatial is a venture-backed Augmented Reality startup software company.  We are building the foundational apps for AR as the next computing platform.  The founding team has deep backgrounds in 3D user interfaces.  Co-Founder Anand Agarawala sold his previous startup BumpTop (a 3D, physics, multi-touch desktop) to Google, also demoed in a TED talk.  Co-Founder Jinha Lee developed award winning 3D interfaces at MIT, Microsoft and Samsung and also showed them at TED.  Spatial is funded by some of the best firms in Silicon Valley including the seed investors in Uber, AirBnB and Zynga.

Job Description:

We can accomplish anything, but we need the right tools and we need each other. Yet, most tools aren’t designed for how we naturally think, and our coworkers are spread all over the world. Spatial breaks through these limitations, transforming work from how it is, to how it should be. In the process, teams grow closer, think bigger, and accomplish things faster. To push the world forward, we need to spend more time thinking and less time traveling. And to execute the next big idea, we’ll need more space to think than a laptop or phone screen can provide.

How does Spatial work?

  • Create a lifelike avatar and work as if next to each other.
  • Transform your room into your monitor and then fill it with information.
  • Use all of your favorite existing tools so your workflow remains intact.
  • And use any device, including VR/AR headsets, your desktop, or your phone to participate.
  • The end result? Work that doesn’t feel like work.

We are a passionate team of 3D Design and AR/VR experts based in New York and San Francisco, and are currently hiring.

We are grateful to have raised funding from investors including iNovia Capital, White Star Capital, Expa (founded by Garrett Camp), Kakao Ventures, Lerer Hippeau, Leaders Fund, Samsung NEXT as well as angels including Mike Krieger (Co-founder of Instagram), Mark Pincus (Founder of Zynga), and Andy Hertzfeld (Co-Inventor of the Macintosh).
