Pre-Series A

At Resolve we’re building the future of efficient communication using immersive technology like VR and AR. Resolve helps bridge the communication gap between people who operate buildings and those who design and build them. We've built the most robust application for reviewing industrial facilities on wireless VR devices like the Oculus Quest - our customers love it because it just works even with complex 3D building models.

From data centers to cutting-edge biopharma facilities, Resolve provides a collaborative virtual environment for operations & maintenance teams to review and interact with 3D building models at full scale - decreasing late stage changes during the construction process and delivering a safer, more easily operable building.

Our customers' facilities contain a multitude of systems spanning mechanical, electrical, structural, and architectural designs which require careful coordination and review to ensure construction is completed on time and within budget. To prevent rework and increased building maintenance costs, Resolve fixes the broken system of screen-sharing 3D models and 2D floorplans with the operations teams that inherit the building and, instead, gives them easy access to their 3D building models before concrete is poured.


Why join us?

  • What makes Resolve so special? Resolve has developed a custom model engine and file format to stream large 3D data sets to wireless VR headsets like the Oculus Quest. Unlike other software in the industry we don’t require people to have a high-end gaming GPUs or cut up their model into chunks. And it’s all automatic so we’re not a 3D studio creating bespoke experiences. We’re targeting the Oculus Quest today, but we believe the future of immersive technology will be untethered and look similar. So we’re making sure we’re learning what it takes for people to be productive with these devices today.

  • What stage is Resolve at? We opened up early access for Resolve in June of 2020. We’re currently partnering with companies that are industry leaders to define and iterate on a product that successfully scales. We have contracts with our early partners for them to use Resolve on the construction of their facilities around the world. Building sticky VR software is hard - in the past we’ve shipped VR products that were consumed for 5-10 minutes at a time and once every few months for a special demo. We’re proud that Resolve power users are spending 1.5 hours in VR every week and our happiest users aren’t part of a techie or gamer demographic. Now that we’ve de-risked model size we are focusing on nailing the workflows and making sure our software scales with our customers’ needs.

  • Is Resolve funded? Yes, our investors include Y-Combinator, Metaplanet (Skype Co-Founder), GFR, CyberAgent Capital, GFO Companies, Great Oaks Capital, Greg Castle (an early Oculus investor), and Tracy Young and Ralph Gootee (the cofounders of Plangrid), and more.

  • How will Resolve make money? We’re already making money! We’ve been proud of delivering significant value to our customers that they’re willing to pay for our software on an annual basis. We can tell you specifics in an introductory call.


Engineering at Resolve

Technical Challenges

1) 3D mesh compression 2) graphics optimization on mobile devices 3) Real time syncing of multiple VR clients

Projects you might work on
  • In the past we developed a system for loading and rendering some of the largest construction files (500M+ polygons) on standalone VR hardware like the Oculus Quest (FB used Resolve to demonstrate Quest 2 performance at the Oculus Keynote last year! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_OiuPOx0cM)

  • We're always finding ways to improve interactions in VR for our customers. As a member of the Resolve team you'll get to experiment with novel ways of making people productive in virtual reality while keeping the magic of being immersed in a virtual environment.

  • We developed the first VR integration for Autodesk BIM 360, the leading cloud platform for hosting building data

  • Hacked together a multi-user, colocated VR experience for one of the largest construction technology conferences in the world (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QxeEs0d7Rs&ab_channel=Resolve)
