Job Description

We are now looking for a Software Engineer in Computational Geometry to join Gleechi's team in downtown Stockholm.

The opening is placed in our "interaction" team that keeps full ownership of Gleechi’s interaction engine product, VirtualGrasp (https://www.virtualgrasp.com/).

As a part of the interaction team, you will be able to do pioneering work to solve one of the most challenging questions in the tech world: how to realize natural interactions between humans, computers and robots.

Our areas of development range from thorough understanding of complex 3D objects and environments to generating human-like motions and animations on virtual avatars and robots. In our daily work, we are tackling new challenges of algorithm design and implementation, with a keen eye on making our product better and easier applicable to our clients, while always being in touch with the newest developments in exciting fields such as Virtual Reality, 3D Engines or Robotics.

At Gleechi, you will be part of our highly diverse and startup-minded team of VR developers, algorithm developers, product engineers, and business heroes, and have the opportunity to join us this year in the accelerating stage when we are just bringing our product portfolio to a broader audience.

Your tasks will include:

  • design, research and develop new groundbreaking methods, as well as improve our current state-of-the-art algorithms.

  • write, optimize and test C++ code with production code quality.

  • follow trends and state-of-the-art in new technology areas such as virtual reality and 3D simulations,

  • plan, communicate and share status updates together with other developers, managers, and clients.

  • prioritize and implement new product features to meet real customer needs.

We are building the world's first software to enable truly natural interaction between humans and technology, and we need your hands and brain to make it happen!

Skills & Requirements

As a perfect candidate for this position,

  • you have a passion to solve complex 3D challenges with solid theoretical and practical background in mathematics, such as in computational geometry (e.g. 3D data processing), mechanical engineering (e.g. multibody dynamics and 3D animation), robotics (e.g. kinematic structures and control theory) or biomechanics (e.g. musculoskeletal system).

  • you have a MSc (or PhD) related to one of these domains, and have proven your ability to understand and solve complex problems with structure, passion and commitment in order to excel at your solutions.

  • you have good software development skills with C++ , with a keen eye on creating efficient code for real-time applications.

  • you are a team-player who thrives in a highly-dynamic tech startup environment where plans and responsibilities may change quickly, and you enjoy sharing your knowledge, findings, and opinions with colleagues of various professional and cultural backgrounds.

Some other Beneficiary Skills for this Position:

  • Proficiency in programming in C# and python.
  • Familiarity with 3D engines (such as Unity, Unreal, or ROS) and how they can be used to address geometrical problems.
  • Experience from deploying or using software applications in the VR, gaming, or robotics industry.
  • Industry experience in any of the areas above.
  • Solving (or creating) weekly math challenges and riddles in the team.

If this sounds like a description of you, please do not hesitate to apply with your CV and a cover letter in which you elaborate on how your profile fits the requirements.
