Hands for the Virtual World
StretchSense is on a quest to ensure everyone has the opportunity to play, create, socialise, collaborate, work, and connect in virtual worlds. Hands are the key to unlocking this. Our hand-tracking solution uses bespoke sensor technology combined with a machine-learning pipeline that is the best in the market. Our first product is a stretchable motion capture glove that accurately digitises finger movement to animate characters in movies, games, or drive metahumans in virtual worlds.
We are a funded company of 60+ employees with a software and commercial team in the UK.
Our HQ is in NZ, where we are proud to design, develop and manufacture our products, whilst we also have a commercial team in the USA.
StretchSense has a growing presence in Edinburgh. We started with one employee in 2021, and aim to have 7 employees by the end of 2022.
We have an office close to Waverley Train Station, and will be looking to maintain a location close to a public transport hub as we grow.
We are looking for a Full Stack Machine Learning Engineer who will be responsible for productionising our machine learning pipeline. This includes work on our data and machine learning pipeline, and is essential for our product and infrastructure.
