At Body Labs, we are building a software platform that can understand bodies, how they move, and how people’s body shape vary across the population, and across their life.

Up until now, understanding of body shapes has been done in an ad-hoc manner, such as that of a tailor who understands how to measure so that the clothes will fit. With the arrival of widely available 3d cameras and depth sensors, that understanding can become quantitative, statistical, and automated.

To this end, Body Labs has constructed the world’s most sophisticated, data-driven, digital model of human shape and pose. Our algorithms are the result of 8 years of scientific research drawing from the fields of computer vision, machine learning and robotics. We can model accurately how individuals fit within particular sub-populations, including those poorly served by existing methods, such as plus-sized, petites, uncommon foot shapes, etc.

We work closely with apparel and equipment companies to help them better understand and visualize their target consumers’ body shapes and motions, and improve their design-to-manufacturing workflows.

We are looking for a highly-skilled SysAdmin to join our fantastic and fast growing team.
