At Leia our driving purpose is to Light up Life. Screens come alive in richer, deeper, more beautiful ways. Flipping seamlessly between 2D and 3D we make mobile experiences truly immersive: no glasses, no tracking, no fuss. Alongside our display technology we are developing Leia Loft™ — a whole new canvas. A space to create, share and experience holographic content in entirely new ways.

Engineering team and processes

We organize our teams roughly around project silos (firmware, video, content, applications, computer vision). We value action and agility, and try to avoid process for-the-sake of process. We value reuse-able, modular projects, and maintain a variety of powerful SDKs. We collaborate closely with internationally-based team members via video chat, Slack and email.

Technical Challenges
  • We've customized Android to support our multiview (3D) display technology.
  • We've built an app store to showcase content from our partners.
  • We've built media players and custom media formats for multiview content.
  • We've built a camera application that can preview and capture content in multiview.
Projects you might work on
  • Build an image editing application for multiview images. Empower users to change the 3D structure of a captured image. Design and realize novel 3D user interactions.
