Founding CEO for MetaHaptics

Posted: 10/17/2018

Location: Silicon Valley, Seattle (alternative locations depend on candidate)

The successful candidate will lead a newly formed startup company based on proprietary acoustic technology that creates haptic and tactile sensations in mid-air and on the human body and eliminates the need for wearable devices. Applications include contactless gesture-tracking devices where direct contact with a physical controller is not desirable. These touch-less (haptic) interfaces can close the feedback loop and enrich user experiences in the areas of 3D guidance, recognition or acceptance of gestures and VR/AR gaming. Other applications are being considered in parallel.

The successful founding CEO will lead the commercialization of this technology as an independent company. Armed with strong intellectual property in acoustics, working capital, and a hardware prototype already under development, this opportunity provides the foundation for a successful independent company. The successful candidate will be responsible for building out the management team and laying out the business strategy.
