Job description
Loom.ai is enabling a new era of virtual communication through the creation, animation and sharing of personalized, 3D avatars. Based in San Francisco, and an alumni of the Y Combinator Fellowship, the Academy Award-winning team has created a best-in-class solution powered by deep learning, computer vision and visual effects. Loom.ai recently announced its partnership with Samsung which brings its fully embedded SDK solution to power ‘AR Emoji’ on the brand-new Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ devices.

In just seconds, Loom.ai can take a single photograph and transform it into a fully representative, 3D avatar as personalized as the individual by recognizing the many nuances that make each face unique. Animatable and expressive in real-time, these avatars can be used to power current and future applications in mobile messaging, entertainment, AR/VR, e-commerce, video conferencing, broadcasting and more.

Our current team comprises multiple PhDs, has decades of experience writing industry-strength software for VFX/games along with a keen eye for scaling/infrastructure, very strong research creds (papers in SIGGRAPH/SCA/CVPR), and two Sci-Tech Oscars.
