Chief Operations Officer
Imagine you could enjoy 3D images on your screens without glasses or wearables. Sounds futuristic? Not according to Dimenco. The start-up is setting new standards in immersive 3D. Their new COO will put the organization, production partners, procurement, and supply chain in place that are required to make the technology widely available.
Dimenco is pushing the boundaries of technology. The start-up has developed Simulated Reality display technology that lets users interact with 3D objects in a virtual environment without the need for any headwear or other wearables. Their technology enables a fully natural and immersive 3D experience with the potential to become a worldwide standard in data visualization (e.g., medical or engineering), gaming, and videoconferencing.
Dimenco licenses their proprietary technology to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to incorporate in their products. The start-up operates on a global scale with the majority of potential partners and clients (such as Intel, Microsoft, and Nvidia) located in Asia and Silicon Valley. Acer is the first renowned OEM to launch a consumer product with Dimenco’s technology: the new Acer SpatialLabs series laptop. Next year, more products are expected to hit the market.
“Our display technology truly speaks for itself. All we need to do is show the 3D imagery we can render without any headwear or wearables, and people are sold on it.” – Maarten Tobias, founder and CEO
What started in 2010 as a Philips spin-off, is now well underway to revolutionize the way we use and interact with digital 3D objects. Dimenco is rapidly expanding in terms of team, partnerships, clients, and revenue. The company currently employs over thirty international talents and is planning to more than double the team’s size over the next twelve months. With a recent Series A funding, led by KPN Ventures and BOM, everything is in place for Dimenco to fulfill its purpose: make Simulated Reality available to the public.
Vacancy: Chief Operations Officer
The next couple of years will be all about growth. One of the first key milestones will be to have two million consumer devices worldwide making use of Dimenco’s technology. The COO will put the operations in place that are required to make that happen. Their main challenge will be to navigate the complexity of turning innovation into mature and scalable products. The COO will be part of the Management Team – together with the CEO, CFO, CTO, and CCO – and will be eligible for equity-based remuneration.
“We are looking for a well-rounded leader who can help us take Dimenco to the next stage: from start-up to scale-up. Someone with a passion for driving growth, who can professionalize the organization.” – Maarten Tobias, founder and CEO
The main responsibility of the COO is to guide the organization in making Dimenco’s technology available for its licensees by taking charge of the integration process and making sure they can rely on the supply of robust, efficient, and high-quality components. The COO will work towards stand-alone and self-sustaining supply chains without the regular day-to-day support from Dimenco. A significant, logistical challenge that requires streamlined processes and a strong focus on operational excellence. To be successful, the COO will need to be able to rely on strong relationships with suppliers, OEMs, customers, and strategic partners. This will require frequent travel, mainly to Asia.
The COO will build and lead the Operations Team. This team currently consists of three people and will be expanding rapidly. Collaboration is key for the COO. They will work closely together with, amongst others, Tech Development, Display Engineering and Business Development. The COO will be involved in decisions around the development and manufacturing of products, product roadmaps, procurement activities, and make or buy choices.
Joining Dimenco now is stepping into a game-changing technological adventure. The COO will manage a broad scope and be instrumental to the success of the start-up. To an entrepreneur who combines a keen eye for details with strong strategic and analytical capabilities, this role offers the opportunity to make an impact on a global scale.
Dimenco is working with Top of Minds to fill this vacancy.
