We are seeking an exceptional Camera Systems Architect to join our Core Engineering Team, taking a lead role in developing industry-leading camera designs for Ultraleap and our partners.

The camera system has a large impact on hand tracking performance and is at the heart of our world-leading hand tracking. You will take ownership in the development of our camera system to continue bringing our industry-leading designs from concept to our target markets. As a camera systems architect you will work closely with internal and external partners to define the camera feature roadmap for future generations of Ultraleap tracking cameras.

The role requires the ability to learn quickly and become familiar with several different technologies that synergize in our hand tracking system. Excellent communication and collaboration skills will be required to bridge the requirements of the product team and customers with our hardware, firmware, mechanical engineering teams and manufacturing partners.

This role will also include camera design evaluation and qualification of our ODM partner’s vision systems and documentation of camera-specific design, test, and manufacturing requirements.


  • Camera systems development, identifying new concepts and system architectures to deliver best-in-class hand tracking system performance.
  • Technical leadership of camera hardware projects in engagements with product, internal engineering teams and external customer engineering teams.
  • Maintain up-to-date knowledge of camera components (lenses, sensors, ISPs etc.), technologies and engineering processes for embedded camera modules.
  • Work closely with internal FAE and external customer engineering teams to understand and optimize customer vision systems.


  • Bachelor’s degree in Optical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Physics, or a related technical discipline or equivalent experience.
  • Proven industry experience in the development of camera systems.
  • Demonstrated history of camera or optical system engineering and cross-functional product development.
  • Experience in at least one of the following:
    • Compact, low power electronics circuit design.
    • Image sensor design and/or characterization.
    • Image quality analysis.
    • Lens/optical system characterization and analysis.
    • Experience of spatial tracking and/or spatial computing systems.
    • Design and test of compact imaging optics.
    • Multi-camera calibration.
