Account Executive North America (Academia)

Do your hobbies include watching behind the scenes footage of how new games and films were made?

Are you a sales hunter with proven capabilities in closing deals?

Are you based in Washington or California?

If you have previous experience selling new technologies to schools and universities, we want to hear from you!

About Us:

We are a New Zealand based start-up that launched the MoCap Pro Glove to address the need for a reliable hand mocap solution. Our gloves allow studios to capture the nuanced hand gestures of an actor for game and film production. While there have been various solutions for face and body capture, an accurate hand solution hasn’t existed to date. 

Our mission is to provide animators with a practical alternative to the traditional methods of keyframing hands. We have ambitious growth targets and are seeking an experienced Account Executive to help integrate our technology into the research units of Academic Researchers and into MoCap Training Institutes by the end of 2021.
