The Interaction and Human Factors team is looking for a software prototyper to help research and build the next generation of sensor-based human-computer interactions. We are an eclectic group with backgrounds in human factors research, controls, signal processing, rapid prototyping, and more. As a member of this team, you will sit at the boundary between prototyping, research, and production – often switching rapidly between exploratory research and product-focused development to enable interaction concepts to make the leap from prototype to product.


Experience creating interactive prototypes or applications and iterating on ideas with designers, human researchers, and/or engineers

Strong expertise in an application programming language such as Swift, C#, Objective-C, etc.

Proficiency with scripting, data processing, data visualization and/or numerical analysis in Python, Ruby, or similar dynamically-typed language

Able to communicate clearly and collaborate with cross-functional teams

Excellent problem-solving and root cause analysis skills

(Preferred) Experience working with sensor data and instrumenting prototypes for data analysis

(Preferred) Familiarity with user research methods including qualitative and quantitative techniques


You will investigate new technologies, prototype concepts, build frameworks for benchmarking human performance, and drive technical development needed to bring ideas to life. You are self-motivated, an excellent problem solver, and a fast learner. You are quick to forge relationships and comfortable with change and ambiguity. You have strong leadership skills and are passionate about envisioning and advocating for magical, usable, and ethically designed human-computer interactions.

While not required, any of the following will make you more effective in this role:

Experience developing software for Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR)

Experience working with human researchers to establish critical research tracks, interpret results, and apply learnings to technical development

Experience developing iOS, watchOS, or macOS applications

Proficiency in UI/UX design including sketches, wireframes, and concept development in collaboration with multi-functional partners
