About Meshcapade

Meshcapade is a startup creating realistic human avatars for use in research, apparel, biomechanics, virtual reality and film. Using machine learning and computer vision, we model the nuances of human shape and movement. We build automation from 3D & 4D scans, RGB-D sequences, Mocap, IMU and image data. Our methods derive from SOTA research and we bring realistic human models to life in everyday environments. Our core product, digidoppel, is a consumer-facing platform for the creation, modification, and delivery of our models and related assets. Our clients run the gamut of global names; a broad mix of tech, media, health and fitness, apparel, and education.

We are a team of passionate creators from a variety of backgrounds, seeking to change how people generate, think about, and make use of digital human avatars. Compensation and benefits are respectively competitive and generous. Our offices are based in Tübingen, Germany. Remote is available, within the EU time zone.
