The world's first image recognition platform for mobile, tablet and wearable devices
Blippar is the world’s leading visual browser, harnessing augmented reality and image-recognition technology to bring the physical world to life through smartphones, tablets and wearables. Blippar enables brands, publishers and agencies to use their products, packaging, newspapers, magazines, and merchandising to activate interactive digital content, which users unlock by 'looking' at it through the app.
Once the Blippar app is downloaded and opened on a mobile device, users are able to hold their phones over physical blippable content - from products to posters - to trigger an engaging digital experience known as “blipping.”
Since launching in 2011, Blippar™ has expanded rapidly internationally - with offices in London, NYC, San Francisco, Chicago, LA, Istanbul, Delhi and Amsterdam - through partnerships with some of the largest international media owners and brands - including Condé Nast, TIME Inc., Procter&Gamble, Kraft, Nestlé, Heinz, Coca-Cola, Anheuser Busch, L'Oréal, Universal Pictures and Jaguar. In June 2014, Blippar™ acquired Layar™, a pioneering AR company founded in the late 2000s. The combined user base, data and technology makes Blippar™ the world’s most influential AR company.
As augmented reality jobs go, one at Blippar is hard to beat. We are a rapidly expanding creative startup at the forefront of a brand new industry, so working here offers real opportunities to shape an innovative technology and the way in which people use it.
Because of this, possessing an active imagination and the skill to implement your extraordinary ideas is crucial if you want to work here; we love having people on our team who don't just think outside the box - they throw the whole box out of the window and build something completely new.
Our bright, open, central offices are energetic environments bursting with collaborative ideas and boundless enthusiasm. But aside from being part of an exciting, super-friendly team that will nurture your talents and help you grow, at Blippar you'll find plenty more tangible benefits, including weekly lunches, drinks, and Olive, the office dog.
As a young, growing company spearheading the exciting augmented reality industry, the biggest perk of all is the creative control you'll be afforded, whether you're part of the design, tech, commercial or marketing teams.
