... the world’s most advanced touch technology

Sensel technology is powerful and widely applicable

Morph wowed the SXSW crowd in 2017, winning best in show. It’s shipping worldwide, is just the beginning and the first commercially available example of what can be done with Sensel technology

Sensel technology has applications today, in trackpads and displays

Wherever you want to control or interact with electronics or other objects, there is an opportunity for Sensel technology, which is compatible with the natural human impulse to use touch and handling to explore and address the world

Sensel technology will have ever-increasing applications over years to come, including wildly different form factors - non-planar, human shaped, glove, wrist, distributed, large area….and different domains - mobile consumer electronics, medical, automotive, and more yet to discover


….and this means there are lots of fun things for engineers, designers and developers to work on, including mechanical, electrical, user experience, materials, algorithms, firmware, software, manufacturing, human factors and more….

….as we make our technology ever more responsive, expressive, miniaturized…

...and create a new language of pressure-aware touch

We’re focussed on gettings things done and building a new world of expression…..not on limiting or micro-managing each other

It’s a rare chance to get in on the ground floor of a successful startup with a major customer list

Come help us invent and discover a gorgeously expressive and natural way to interact with our devices, to reduce fatigue, increase user satisfaction, adapt to changing needs, be universally accessible, and delight us all.


Health, vision, and dental insurance (we cover 80% of premiums for individuals and families)

Life insurance and a SIMPLE IRA.

20 PTO days per year, as well as 9 holidays

We are a high-growth, early stage startup and our competitive compensation includes both salary and equity.  


Sensel is a VC-funded startup located in Sunnyvale, CA. We're enabling people to enjoy more expressive interaction with their devices using the world's most advanced touch technology. Our first product, the Morph, won "Best in Show" at SXSW 2017, and is currently shipping to customers worldwide. We're integrating our pressure-responsive sensors into trackpads, displays, and everything else that involves human interaction. Sensel is a progressive and open-minded meritocracy and we have big plans. We know that a diverse team is fundamental to innovation and long term success, so if you’re smart, good at what you do, and nice to work with, we’d love to talk to you about opportunities!
