Senior Full-Stack Engineer


Looking Glass Factory

Who we are

Hi! We’re Looking Glass – a company based out of Brooklyn & Hong Kong – and we make holograms.

We are a small (and growing!) passionate team of artists, inventors, and engineers building a completely new interface paradigm – one that is three-dimensional, shared, and magical. To help us expand and improve our online services, from our main website to , we’re seeking a talented senior full-stack engineer to support the development effort.

Why we need you

We are working to build a future that is more Star Trek and less Ready Player One. To accomplish this mission, we’re building a diverse team of people from different backgrounds and experiences. As such, we encourage women, people of color, and others from historically marginalized groups to apply.

Lastly, given that we are iterating on products using custom hardware, we prefer candidates local to New York, but a fully remote position is an option for highly qualified candidates.

Will work closely with our marketers, designers, and customer support staff to iterate on our web platform

Has a track record of building products end-to-end in environments of high ambiguity. You’re known as someone who owns problems and outcomes

Prioritizes product over process – shipping beautiful products is more important than checking all the boxes

Experience working with stakeholders to understand, document, develop, and explain systems and APIs that meet their requirements

Experience deploying custom, containerized systems to cloud platforms (AWS, GCP, Azure)

Experience writing stable, testable, and scalable code to ensure high-quality services to our users

As a small, ambitious team, we’re looking for someone flexible and multidisciplinary. Here are some other skills that are nice to have, but not required:

Experience managing a web product, or experience managing a full-stack web development team

Experience with three.js/react-three-fiber or similar WebGL frameworks and WebXR
