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.

What we offer

You will work closely with the founders to help build the core products of a fresh startup, with the opportunity to drive design from the ground up. 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 avatars. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Our offices are based in Tübingen, Germany. Remote is available.


The successful applicant will be a developer with good knowledge of their domain and the ability to build out and support app frontends from start to finish, as well as specialist knowledge of sensors and imaging on mobile devices.
