Matterport makes it possible to see, experience and understand interior spaces in entirely new ways. Our 3D models allow people to walk through, modify and share immersive digital environments with anyone, anywhere, on everyday devices such as laptops and iPads.
The cloud-based software and 3D camera at the heart of the Matterport solution are highly advanced, patented technologies that are exceptionally easy-to-use. With minimal training, anyone can create highly realistic and dimensionally accurate 3D environments.
Our mission is to create immersive, data-rich 3D environments and experiences accessible and affordable to a wide range of industries.
Matterport is led by innovators with deep experience in computer vision, infrared technology, 3D mesh generation and cloud software solutions.
For the past 25 years, Bill has worked to turn cutting edge technologies into new businesses, both within larger companies as well as at start-ups. He thrives on taking new technologies and turning them into successful businesses. Most recently Bill was GM of Converged Consumer Solutions at Motorola Mobility where he was responsible for connected home, device management, and mobile video solutions. Some notable recent accomplishments were at 3D sensor provider Canesta where he helped develop and execute a consumer strategy that led to the company’s acquisition by Microsoft; and at Touch Revolution, where he helped launch and build the touch screen company that became part of the TPK Group. Bill earned a BA and BS Economics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and an MBA from the Kellogg Business School at Northwestern University.
When Matt left Google’s research team at 22, he wanted to create environments in which people interact with computers in an intuitive, natural way. Matt founded Reactrix, where he formed the technology team and provided the key computer vision innovations behind the interactive floor displays that let millions of people play with virtual koi ponds and soccer balls. When Matt first saw Microsoft’s Kinect product, he recognized the huge spectrum of computer vision applications it could power. He chose to focus Matterport on building models of real things because of the potential to help millions of people communicate in 3D. When Matt isn’t rallying the team at Matterport, he likes to organize community hacking events. Matt earned a Bachelor of Science in computer science from Stanford University.
Dave led the engineering of the Matterport system from hardware integration to development of the proprietary algorithms that drive the platform. Dave is an alumnus of PayPal, where he started when the entire company could fit in a conference room. He was instrumental in designing the tools that keep transactional fraud in check at PayPal, having created the first commercial implementation of CAPTCHA. Dave loves complex, multidimensional puzzles, and this drew him to Matterport; it also keeps him and his friends busy as they vie for world domination around a kitchen table. Dave earned a Bachelor of Science in computer science, with highest honors, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Mike makes sure the company runs smoothly and the team stays focused. He began his career at SRI International, where he formed a group to make some of the world’s most accurate 3D models of real places. The first resulting startup created 3D models of outdoor spaces based on DARPA technology. Mike’s technical experience stretches from there to include spy planes and plasmonics. A veteran of several startups, he has held leadership roles in operations, marketing and engineering. When Matt and Dave shared Matterport’s vision with Mike, he was thrilled at the chance to help build the system he had wanted for half a decade. Much to his wife’s relief, he has given up skydiving to run marathons. Mike earned a Bachelor of Science in engineering from Harvey Mudd College.
Matterport has a vibrant culture built around collaboration, results and technical innovation. We’re curious and inquisitive. We want to change the world and the way people experience it, and we’re looking for get-it-done problem solvers to join our team. We offer an informal and relaxed environment that will inspire you to think differently. Plus good food, attractive compensation and great benefits.
