Port 6 builds tools for making natural and intuitive human-computer interactions. We think that the motor channel is underutilized for interactions in virtual worlds. To allow for better interactions, we must build a better hand model, and here's where we want you to shine. At Port 6, you will be working in our interaction laboratory to transform biometric data into liberating and powerful interactions that feel nothing short of pure magic.

Data is the cow, and you'll get to be Gordon Ramsay.

At the core of the work will be the research of bleeding edge of analyzing and understanding biometric data, and the development of highly effective collection, training and testing pipelines for the purpose of utilizing the data in controlling user interfaces, playing games, making beautiful and using other apps. You will work closely with our interaction and hardware teams to design and implement the use of software in custom input hardware.

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.


Responsibilities

  • Transform biometric signals from our custom hardware into commands and digital representations of the human hand

  • Design highly effective collection, training and testing pipelines for rapid iteration and effective research work

  • Design and implement cutting edge data architectures

Things we'd value from you

  • Experience and knowledge of creating and shipping ML projects

  • Understanding of modern technologies, data processing methods, ML architectures, and applied mathematics

  • Experience with rapid and iterative work as we move very quick

  • 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

  • You've worked with biometric data

Process

  1. Chat with Ohto, the CEO (30 min). A bidirectional conversation about us and you!

  2. Technical chat with Jamin, our Product Lead (15 min). Get to know our challenges in better detail and have a conversation about the role of data in future human-computer interactions. This will be 15-30 minutes in length.

  3. Port 6 Data Challenge (3 hours and 30min to demo it). We have a challenge for you and we want to see how you go about tackling it. Then you'll have a chance to present it to our data scientists and discuss the approach.

  4. Discuss practicalities and meet the team (30min).

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.
