Tech Lead / Senior C++ Engineer (f/m/d)

About us

At Holoplot, we develop innovative hardware and software solutions to push the boundaries of what you thought loudspeakers are capable of: Using real-time wave field synthesis and 3D beamforming, our systems enable a radically new approach to sonically outstanding, high-quality speech and music reproduction, even in the acoustically most challenging environments.

We build our products with love for music, commitment to the highest possible quality, and a passion for disrupting the status quo.

In 2017, we were honored with the SXSW Innovation Award, but we are far from done yet: Being nominated one of the 50 most innovative companies in the world, we have embarked on the mission to develop the most revolutionary live entertainment sound system in the world.

What you will do

HOLOPLOT is a pro audio company from Berlin. Since early 2011, we have been working on radically transforming audio technology by re-thinking the underlying physics of sound reproduction.

We have recently launched the HOLOPLOT X1 Matrix Array, the sound system for a new era, a powerful tool that brings previously inaccessible capabilities to the world of audio - enabling a completely new way of designing and experiencing sound in 3D.

At the heart of all HOLOPLOT sound systems is our modeling, simulation, and configuration software, HOLOPLOT Plan. It enables our clients, acoustic consultants, and other system designers to plan the physical layout of a HOLOPLOT system, to define the properties of the sound fields, and to set acoustic parameters such as EQ and delay. Applications of HOLOPLOT range from systems optimized to providing perfect speech intelligibility across an entire venue to creating immersive entertainment experiences that engulf the audience in omni-directional sound.

Together with a talented team of C++ developers, the Product Manager, and the Product Designers (UX and UI), you will work on HOLOPLOT Plan. Plan is an in-development software solution that enables sound system designers to simulate, set up, and optimize a HOLOPLOT audio system to achieve state-of-the-art sound coverage and fidelity even in the most demanding situations.
