About the company
Leap Motion’s mission is to remove the barriers between people and technology. Our unprecedented hand tracking lets you reach into virtual and augmented reality to interact with new worlds. We're currently partnering with major VR manufacturers to embed Leap Motion technology into mobile VR/AR headsets.
Leap Motion’s mission is to build a natural connection between people and technology, unlocking the potential of both. At the core of our technology lies the tracking software that transforms hands into data at near-zero latency. To take this to the next level, we’re looking for a Computer Vision Engineer to develop state-of-the-art image processing algorithms.
Leap Motion opens up magical new worlds and experiences where you can tangibly interact with the digital world. Our tracking technology makes this possible in ways that are simple, powerful and human. We’re a small company with a global presence and our platform is transforming fields as diverse as gaming, education, music, industrial simulation and more as we become the default input for virtual and augmented reality.
This is a bleeding-edge space for bleeding-edge people. As we craft the next phase of user interfaces and interactions there is rarely a precedent to follow.
