Tobias Ulvgård, Lead Research Developer, AR/VR

What brought you to Dirac?

I had some information about the company prior to applying. Dirac offers a work environment that is heavily geared towards research, which is rare and stimulating for me.

What is the best thing about your job?

You get to work in whatever OS/IDE you want. Our technologies target many platforms and having a diverse expertise in these areas is one of the key strengths among developers at Dirac.

What is the coolest thing you're working on right now?

Realizing Dirac VR on VR enabled phones, head mounted displays, and AR devices. Working with this amazing technology every day and being part of a developing community consisting of VR and AR enthusiasts is very energizing.

What types of music do you usually listen to? What is your favourite music genre?

Black and death metal—which is paradoxical since it is not necessarily the best audio benchmark.

What do you do in your free time?

Recently, I have picked up historical reenactment as a hobby - preferably early middle age or viking period. It mostly involves crafting and arts of different kinds that are simple to do on your own.
