Advanced R&D Lead/Scientist/Engineer
You have a thirst for knowledge with a broad technical background and thrive in a fast-paced high-tech development environment. You excel at taking a high-level goal with no obvious solutions, quickly becoming an expert in the relevant areas of technology, and creating proof-of-concept prototypes as quickly as possible.
Feel like you can’t tick all the boxes? If you have some of the skills and experience that we’re looking for and are willing to use your talent to learn the rest, we encourage you to apply!
What you'll do:
There are a variety of roles open within our Advanced R&D group. We run many "moonshot" projects to develop technology that doesn't exist yet. We're looking for both individual team members and team leads. Technical areas of interest include physics, optics, electronics, human-computer interface (HCI), artificial intelligence, and machine learning.
What you need:
- A broad technical background with deep knowledge in at least one area of expertise
- Experience in an environment developing new technology
- A hacker mentality and the ability to make stuff
Day-to-day, we challenge each other to constantly raise the bar, encourage unconventional thinking to achieve innovative breakthroughs, and are passionately committed to surpassing our goals. We advocate a healthy lifestyle and promote continuous learning in a flexible work environment. Most of all, we set visionary goals, and we’re passionate about building the best, most impactful products that people will love.
