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 prioritisation 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.
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.
Excellent communication skills in English
If you love creating extremely cool stuff, we'd love to see your application!
