Augmented Job Board

When you look for augmented reality news and insights, Games Alfresco and Augmented Times are there for you, and so for thousands others. Judging from last week’s poll, our readers come from all walks of life, but all share a passion for augmented reality. So, it’s only natural that if your company or your research institute is looking to fill up an AR related position, or even if you are looking for a partner for an AR project, you will look for the right person here.
I was thinking of have a bi-weekly post consisting of open positions sent by our beloved readers. If you thinks it’s a good idea, an have an open position in mind, feel free to email me at rouli.net|at|gmail.com. If on the other hand, you are a loyal reader and hate the idea (since you prefer this blog just as it is), please leave a comment.

To get things started here are some positions I’ve handpicked from around the web. Obviously, that’s not a very long or attractive list, but with some help from you it can become useful.

  • AR integrator at Fake (UK) Strong programming background in C, Proficient with Total Immersion SDK
  • Augmented reality expert at Harvard Technology Partners (Netherlands)We are working on a innovative project for image analysis and processing and need knowledge of several domains in 2d analysis
  • Member of Research Staff of User Experiences at Nokia HollywoodNokia Research Center Hollywood (NRCH) seeks a researcher in user experiences to join their newly established research center based in Santa Monica, California. This exciting lab is carrying out a range of research activities in the areas of mobile augmented reality experiences; innovative use of sensors; new forms of user interface and interaction; tools for content creation for mobile devices and large-scale mobile internet services, systems and solutions.

  1. Great site, I now have you bookmarked to come back again.

  2. Some very interesting points raised here, which has got me thinking!

  3. Though I’m really enthused to see some positions open up (evidence that the industry is continuing to grow), I’m a bit disappointed with the lack of internships or starting positions currently out there. I mean knowing the “Total Immersion” SDK would be nice, I’m sure its the best platform out there, but how does anyone learn how to use that without first working for them? And how far behind are students who use open source toolkits like AR or FLAR?

    If my generation is going to play through the world someday, we had better also see some positions open up for Mixed Reality Consultants, Digital Therapists and Hallucination Mentors. We have much more to learn about these sorts of experiences than simply how to code them.

  4. I have a degree in accounting, it would be fun to work in a company (even though I won’t be anywhere near the development of technology side) that’s on the cutting edge of the future.

  5. I wouldnt be supprised if in 5-10 years the biggest (and most boring) AR related job marker will be armys of model-fixers correcting the errors between real life and the virtual layers.
    Making sure public inferstructure, major buildings and such are kept “in sycn” between the two.
    Even with logical extensions of photosyth, theres going to be a lot of errors, imho.
