Job Description
It’s what the world’s been waiting for.

That’s the response we get from our technology. Imagine what it would be like to have real physical buttons morph and grow out of the surface of the screen the next time you are typing an email, playing a game, or scrolling a webpage on your tablet or smartphone. And then, when you are done, the buttons disappear back into the screen, leaving a perfectly flat, perfectly clear surface. That is what Tactus does and you can be a part of it. If you are looking to join a company that is reshaping the way people interact with devices and experience the world, then we want to meet you.
