At Microsoft, we have bold ambitions: Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. In 2015, we launched HoloLens, the world’s first spatial computing device and platform, with the mission of empowering people to transform their world. In 2022, we continue that journey with the core belief that mixed reality can bring people closer and help them go further. In that spirit, the Mixed Reality Capture Studios team is looking for an experienced leader to head our efforts to grow the global market for volumetric video in service of Mixed Reality and beyond.

Our studios produce holograms of people and performances, capturing their full 3D appearance so you can view the performance from any angle at any time. We operate a reference stage in San Francisco and have licensed our tech to many partners around the world including London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Seoul, Washington D.C., Tokyo, and Zurich, with several more on the way. These studios enable creators to build consumer and enterprise experiences for Mixed Reality, mobile, web, desktop, and TV. Hundreds of projects have been produced in our ecosystem with very high-profile talent and bands… it’s not just a science experiment, it’s real. And we’re just getting started, with a roadmap to add many more global studio partners, mobile kits to deploy anywhere, real-time systems, and even consumer-level capture. It’s the evolution of photography and video, and we envision the day when everyone in the world is viewing this kind of content daily and collecting/sharing holograms of people and moments they love
