In Mesh, people—not devices—are at the center of everything we do. Our tech moves beyond screens and pixels, creating a new reality aimed at bringing us closer together—whether that’s scientists “meeting” on the surface of a virtual Mars or some yet undreamt-of possibility. To get there, we’re incorporating groundbreaking technologies, from the revolutionary Holographic Processing Unit to computer vision, machine learning, human-computer interaction, and more.

We’re a team of talented engineers, program managers and artists putting technology on a human path across all Windows devices, including Microsoft HoloLens, the Internet of Things, phones, tablets, desktops, and Xbox. Our team has people from a wide variety of backgrounds, identities, previous work histories, life experiences, and we are eager to maintain and grow that diversity. Our varied backgrounds and unique experiences enable us to be better at building the best solutions for our customers and make for dynamic and joyful collaborations with colleagues!

We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our engineering team to advance the technology of volumetric video. Our Mixed Reality Capture Studios produce holograms of people and performances, capturing their full 3D appearance for viewing from any angle. We operate a reference stage in San Francisco and have licensed our tech to partners around the world, with more on the way. These studios already enable creators to build consumer and enterprise experiences for Mixed Reality, mobile, web, desktop, and TV, and we’re just getting started, with a roadmap to bring this medium to everyone in Microsoft Mesh. It’s the evolution of video, and we envision the day when everyone has access to this technology to connect and collaborate.

If you are passionate about groundbreaking Mixed Reality technology and want to work on a team dedicated to a culture of inclusion, growth mindset and collaboration, we need you!
