Life at Realize

we are extremely lucky to have so many different strengths on this team... because when your weakness is someone else’s strength, you can trust them 100% to have your back

this group is so intentional... no one is doing something just to do something

Varun with his dog

the fact that we’re a multi-national startup made up by a group that is motivated, aligned and independent is pretty incredible.

our team does some highly difficult things with excellence... hiring, stewarding capital, allocating scarce resources... most importantly, this team builds relationships, no matter the distance or differences between us

our team is awesome because everyone is  self-motivated and self directed, but at the same time each person is willing to listen to one another... no-one has an ego that gets in the way

what makes our team unique is what we are not... it is human nature to get prideful, so it requires conscientious effort to fight through it... this makes us fragile, because it is easy to lose, but it is so important that we keep this humility as our identity

belonging at Realize is more than being part of the team, it's feeling like part of the family

Senior UX Designer

Senior UX Designer

At Realize we know that great design bridges the gap between the material and the abstract. Our company is predicated on making our user’s lives easier. You will be the undeniable foundation of that mission. We need a leader in design and implementation; someone who knows how to execute on Tynan Sylvester’s definition of “Elegance.”

You are creating the front-end of an app that must have utility for the advanced designers, while simultaneously engaging your grandmother. It’s not simple. We are looking for someone with passion and humility, hunger and perseverance. From the ground up, we aspire to be user first. We all acknowledge this role is the most challenging in the organization and has the most impact upon the user…nonetheless, we know you are out there. And we’re ready for you!

Senior Backend Engineer

Senior Backend Engineer

We are at an inflection point where our database is growing exponentially, not just in size of the data being stored, but also in complexity of its architecture. We need a Senior Backend Engineer whose experience shows that he or she can optimize short-term fixes and long-term overhauls. Thinking about the future without futureproofing everything.  

Being the senior person in a specific domain comes with a ton of responsibility at Realize. Product decisions are made by the team in a way that leverages a combination of business and engineering expertise. Although our goal is first and foremost driven by the customer, we lean heavily on our engineers to chart that course. We need builders who can chart the course.  

Ideal profiles for this role  have experience architecting databases, automating file conversions, and have a knack for doing whatever it takes to build and maintain a solid backend foundation, even if that means pitching in on the Dev Ops side of things.

Photo-Realism is our goal. Creating, sourcing and implementing 3D models are core to our process, and are, amazingly enough, not someone’s full-time job at Realize.  This^ = High Priority. On our wish list for this role is 3D modeling ability, a desire to manage the sourcing of assets (experience is less important than a desire to do this well), and a basic understanding of either Unity or C#. Most critical though is that this role can work autonomously, aligned with our vision for the product.  

You would have a ton of freedom in this role, so our evaluation will be almost purely based on your history of stewarding freedom and responsibility. And we want to know ‘Why Realize?’ because there are a lot of other great companies out there! Though we aren’t looking for an engineer in this role, you may be at risk of being adopted by the engineering team as one of their own. Don’t be worried, they are generally nice, except on Friday Podcast Chats if they think the YouTube video/Medium article/Podcast that you suggested is cheesy. If that happens, good luck, you will be roasted.

Senior Computer Vision Engineer

Senior Computer Vision Engineer

We’re in the business of digitally rebuilding the world. Our team is hyper focused on creating more tools to help users do just that. We’re all about the here and now; generating results in the short-term while understanding great inventions are often a function of novel insight and subsequent application. We’re also practitioners, not researchers. We're looking to change the world now, not in decade, not in a year.  

The Capture Team at Realize is looking to add to its number. The mind-meld between our current team and prospective hires is paramount for us. Our group doesn’t look alike and we often don't think alike, but it’s that mental diversity which ensures that the team is more valuable than the sum of its parts  

If, you’re into CV and spatial ML, but you’re not trying to rewrite history. If you galvanize ingenuity with practicality. And if you prioritize winning (delivering what’s best for the user) over complexity... If that’s you, then we want to hire you for your dream job.

C# Engineer

C# Engineer

We have users asking us for the Realize app, and they want it yesterday. Our problem is that demand for functionality and scalability is outpacing our team. We’re looking for a rapid prototyper and a force magnifier. Someone who is just as excited to implement a solution as they are with thinking through the problem itself.  

C# is our melting pot. Everyone on the team writes in C#, so we all interface with one another as we sculpt different pieces of the software. Occasionally, our product manager has been known to dabble in the codebase and break everything, so good humor, experience with GitHub, and a desire to see peoples’ strengths, rather than their weaknesses, are core to imprinting who you are on our team’s DNA.

We hate requirements, but prior experience creating features and logic for 3-dimensional spatial interaction is necessary for this role.

Head of Strategy/Ops

Head of Strategy/Ops

Too many priorities, too few people to prioritize them. Many domains, with not enough domain-expertise. These are the problems we face. We’re hunting for another teammate as crazy as us. Someone who thrives in ambiguity, wants to become an expert in unfamiliar areas and who looks at joining us as an opportunity to invest in themselves.  

Our business team consists of 3 individuals with a collective zero years of startup experience. If you come bearing no startup experience, you’ll fit right in. If you come from a startup background, our hope is that it shapes not just how you work, but how you think – and we look forward to learning from you. Our team eschews “pride of ownership” of tasks and results. The goal is an ownership mentality, and that means prioritizing team results over individual credit.

Senior Graphics Engineer

We are pushing the bounds of realism, speed and excitement for our users. Unity’s engine is core to what we do. The Senior Graphics Engineer we’re looking to hire can look at our our stack and immediately tell us where we need to focus and improve.  

We operate within a freedom-based work culture, where autonomy and independence are the building blocks of every role. Sprints are integral to our engineering workflow, but outside of that, our engineers thrive in a “light-touch” management relationship, where they are often communicating up the chain what should be prioritized and focused on, rather than the traditional “top down” approach to most management styles.

Head of Digital Marketing

Head of Digital Marketing

Quantifying Acquisition. Two words. One Role. At Realize, we believe in taking unique approaches to marketing on all fronts, but especially digitally. This role is not for testing traditional channels and optimizing for cost. We look for “seemingly” unscalable paths to expand our reach to new demographics. And everything we do, we try to quantify.  

You’ll need to be versed in management of typical channels, but you’ll also be required to have a foundational belief in shifting consumer habits. You’ll be tasked with building upon our current strategies for acquisition and engagement, but you’ll also have flexibility to chart your own path and bring a new flavor to our approach.
