iOS Developer with AR focus

ABOUT TRIBE

Our mission is to provide everyone in Europe with instant access to eyecare. We believe that buying glasses should be as easy as buying clothes but as safe as going to the doctor.

Therefore, we are building the world’s fastest and most reliable way to buy prescription glasses with nothing but your smartphone. We are literally putting the optician in your pocket so you can order a new pair of glasses from wherever you are.

Our online, in-store and omnichannel solutions help customers find a frame that truly fits their face and style, offer realistic virtual try-ons and easy sharing with loved ones, and update their lens prescriptions.

We are a European deep tech company reinventing the way we buy eyewear, backed by the largest European online optician Mister Spex. As such, your work has the chance to directly impact the lives of millions of people.

Today, we are a high-performing tribe of 12 with Brazilian, Croatian, German, Italian, Macedonian, Portuguese, and Russian roots, looking to double in size next year. Our two co-founders Kevin and Julian have more than 15 years of experience in mathematical research, technology start-ups and top-tier consulting. Originally founded in Berlin, our team works from all over Europe. We have been committed to a remote-friendly culture since the beginning, prioritizing talent over location from the start.
