About

Spatial

We can accomplish anything, but we need the right tools and we need each other. Yet, most tools aren’t designed for how we naturally think, and our coworkers are spread all over the world. Spatial breaks through these limitations, transforming work from how it is, to how it should be. In the process, teams grow closer, think bigger, and accomplish things faster. To push the world forward, we need to spend more time thinking and less time traveling. And to execute the next big idea, we’ll need more space to think than a laptop or phone screen can provide.

How does Spatial work?

  • Create a lifelike avatar and work as if next to each other.
  • Transform your room into your monitor and then fill it with information.
  • Use all of your favorite existing tools so your workflow remains intact.
  • And use any device, including VR/AR headsets, your desktop, or your phone to participate.

The end result? Work that doesn’t feel like work.

We are a passionate team of 3D Design and AR/VR experts based in New York and San Francisco, and are currently hiring. Check out our postings and join us to build the collective future of computing.
