Product Manager, Varjo Devices

Varjo Stockholm / Nordics

Company

Role

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.

Job description

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.

Responsibilities

  • Define the long-run roadmap and feature backlog for 2-3 engineering teams
  • Interact with customers and sales to understand requirements
  • Make priority trade-offs taking into account business and technical imperatives
  • Communicate the plans and vision for your area across the organisation

Requirements

  • 5 years of product management experience. You should have a track record of working with engineering on a technically demanding product.
  • Experience working directly with end customers to understand requirements.
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Experience in building hardware products is helpful, but not essential. Enterprise B2B product experience is preferred.
  • Willingness to be hands-on across the full lifecycle of product development, from research to specifications, to commercial launch.

Varjo is best known for delivering virtual and mixed reality that look and feel just as real as the real world.

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.

What Varjo offer

  • The possibility to see into the future of computing as you define the future mixed reality experiences
  • Work with teams of world-leading domain experts (optics, computer vision, industrial design)
  • A startup culture with minimal bureaucracy and maximum opportunity for you to take charge of your work
  • The possibility to select the tools and methods you want to use to do your job effectively
  • Competitive salary and reward plan to share the success
  • Premium employee medical coverage with life insurance and disability benefits

This position can be based in either Finland or Sweden.
