Varjo is a Finnish metaverse technology company developing the world’s most advanced VR/XR hardware and software.
At Varjo they are building the future of immersive computing. The mixed reality experiences they create will empower each of us to be more creative and more productive. Varjo’s focus is on the most demanding professional use cases, and the technology they are building now is defining the consumer mainstream in Virtual and Mixed Reality for years to come.
When they are done, interacting without limitations of physical space and computers will look nothing like what they do right now.
Redefining computing relies on us creating hardware and software that seamlessly merge virtual reality and the real world. To create this illusion, Varjo is designing and developing completely new ways of using cameras, complex imaging pipelines, and computer vision algorithms.
They are now looking for a product manager to set the direction on some of the most important tracks in the development of their Virtual and Mixed Reality headsets. As Product Manager, you will be responsible for working with customers and partners to validate their needs and translate these into roadmaps for your engineering and design teams. For example, you might be trying to understand how customers are using our eye-tracking technology, investigating the external technology landscape, and then using this information to make short-run trade-offs around feature prioritization, but also informing a long-run roadmap for your area. You will help Varjo’s R&D teams to surface the customer and business implications of the technical options we have, and lead the product discussion on your areas with senior management.
This is a highly technical space, and you will be working with some of the industry’s leading experts. You do not need to have a background in VR/XR, but you will need to show an interest and aptitude for bridging the gap between customers and deep technology. You can get into the detail of topics, but also provide a clear written and oral synthesis.
Varjo is best known for delivering virtual and mixed reality that look and feel just as real as the real world. Founded in 2016, Varjo now operates in over 40 countries worldwide with 170+ employees in offices in Helsinki, Oslo, and Washington D.C. Varjo’s VR and XR solutions are already being used to train astronauts at Boeing, design vehicles at Aston Martin, and for virtually all professional use cases across the world’s leading companies.
This position can be based in either Finland or Sweden.
