Pattern Engineer & Fit Specialist

PATTERN ENGINEER & FIT SPECIALIST

About us:

We are creating the world’s first textile computing platform. We’re integrating technology directly into one of the few things we have contact with our entire lives - textiles. Our apparel will be wearable, washable, charges wirelessly and is loaded with invisible technology, resulting in zero habit change. The sensors and actuators embedded within our clothing create what we call your Digital Identity. We’ll enable your digital identity to then be consumed by doctors, coaches, other IoT devices, your family members, etc. Without you consciously having to think about it. Imagine a world where you walk into your house and the temperature automatically adjusts to your optimal body temperature or the lights adjust to your mood or your doctor is aware of the onset of a disease before you even visit. If we accomplish this feat, we will be ushering in a new computing revolution, similar in magnitude to when the first iPhone displaced the watch, the pocket calculator, the camera and the cell phone.

We’re looking for people who believe in our mission to make wearable technology truly ubiquitous and convenient, so that everyone can benefit from it. We are a cross-functional team solving big challenges at the intersection of fashion, electronics, software, and data science.

We live, design, fit and test in Toronto Canada – a city perfectly suited to our fast paced lives. We are on the go non-stop from 6AM to 8PM. We design clothes that can transition from simple to smart, from dark to light, from cold to heated.

We are committed to a culture of transformational development. We are more than just technically smart textile and emerging technology company – we are revolutionizing the garment and textile industry.

Anything is possible and we have big plans!
