AR Unity Interaction Developer

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated

Port 6's goal is to build the leading augmented reality interaction laboratory in Europe over the next year. A time machine over and into the next leap in human cognition since the invention of the personal computer.

At Port 6, you will be working in our interaction laboratory by prototyping a concert of novel interaction experiences in augmented reality. This includes the entire process from ideation and prioritization down to execution and demonstration of interaction demos.

Part of this work involves searching and understanding previously published research papers at the forefront of AR interaction hardware and techniques, as well as continuously developing a hands on intuition for new input hardware you encounter along your demo making journey.

At the core of the work will be the development of AR user interfaces, games, and apps using a combination of custom hardware devices built in house as well as externally sourced 3rd party input hardware. These devices range from output devices such as AR headsets and noise cancelling headphones to input devices such as hand pose estimation cameras, AR input gloves, wristbands, microphones, and more.

Additionally you will work closely with our hardware lab team to design custom input hardware for augmented reality with technical requirements that are most crucial to the demos you build, and the future of augmented reality.

You will be challenged to solve problems that have never been solved before - but you'll always get to do it together with the team. We move fast and we move united.

And also, you will get a chance to own a part of the company.


Responsibilities

  • Deliver novel, creative, and compelling interaction demos at a high rate of iteration.

  • Developing a clear understanding and building a collective knowledge base on cutting edge augmented reality interaction methods.

  • Formulating desired technical requirements for new custom input devices.


Things we'd value from you

  • Experience with AR development and 3D game engines such as Unity or Unreal engine.

  • Familiarity with using and designing existing and custom multi-modal input and output methods in augmented reality such as hand tracking, voice recognition, and others.

  • Experience with rapid iterative prototyping as well as creating polished demo experiences with care where it matters.

  • Pro-activeness and adaptability in a startup environment

  • Have the appetite to solve previously unsolved problems.

  • You are driven by innovation and want to experiment, a lot


Plus if

  • Excellent communication skills in English

  • Vim


If you love creating extremely cool stuff, we'd love to see your application!

Working at
Port 6

Port 6 is on a mission to build the future of human computer interaction in extended realities. A future where the real and virtual worlds merge, and where the interactions feel so powerful, responsive, and liberating they seem like a sixth sense. We do it by building AI-powered wristbands, creating the truly natural way to interact. Our first prototypes enable typing, gaming, playing musical instruments, creating artwork, controlling an operating system, and many more. This is how we work. We build prototypes every day looking to answer the most important unanswered questions at the foundation of the augmented reality future, from interaction design to biomedical instrumentation. Walking the fine line between playful exploration and parabolic focus. Our lab then, is our playground. It is the physical manifestation of our future building mindset. Our aim is to make it the world's leading augmented reality interaction lab; a bright space people enter to experience years into the future and touch it themselves with their own hands. By turning bleeding edge research into commercial opportunities, we are aiming to make the future of augmented reality more present, private, and powerful. Our team is composed of a group of makers with backgrounds in design, physics, machine learning, electrical engineering, and more, including advisors Miklu Silvanto (ex-Apple) and Markku Mäkeläinen (ex-Facebook). Now, we are looking for more colleagues who want to build the leading interaction laboratory and the world-class knowledge to create the next era of human computer interaction. We are being funded by investment fund Superangel, Superhero Capital, Charlotta Björnberg-Paul, and the founders of Pipedrive: Urmas Purde, Timo Rein, and Peep Vain.
