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. At Mixed Reality Capture Studios, we bring human presence to mixed reality, and we’re looking for an experienced leader to drive adoption and 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 them from any angle at any time. Our reference stage is in San Francisco, and we have licensed partners around the world including London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Seoul, Washington D.C., Vancouver, Tokyo, and Zurich, with several more on the way. We give creators the ability to put real people into immersive, mobile, web, desktop, and TV experiences for both enterprise and consumers. Hundreds of projects have been produced in our ecosystem with high-profile brands and A-list talent… it’s not just a science experiment, it’s real.

This is the evolution of photography and video, and we’re just getting started. We’re on path to add many more global studio partners, mobile kits to deploy anywhere, real-time systems, and even capture for consumers. We envision the day when everyone in the world is viewing volumetric content daily, collecting and sharing holograms of people and moments they love
