Forma's Moon Mission
Forma is building photorealistic avatars that are a dynamic and deeply personal form for people’s online identity. We believe that as our online lives grow in importance, people look for more authenticity and relatability - and for everybody on the planet there is nothing more familiar than an image of themselves.
Through Forma’s computer vision and graphics technology, users can create a flexible visual identity from a single photo of themselves, instantly and photorealistically. Today they can try on any outfit whether just for fun or before buying, and soon they will be able star in a movie, video game, TV show, YouTube clip, billboard ad, VR/AR, etc.
We are looking for passionate, entrepreneurial computer vision researchers to join our team.
Beyond technical skills and passion, we also look for 'culture-add' candidates who can embrace yet challenge and expand the team's perspectives. Forma is based in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and offers competitive compensation and benefits.
