Clara has a unique “ABC” cultured background: American, Burmese, and Chinese. As a Chinese, she was borned and raised in Burma and earned a Bachelor’s Degree at age 19. After exploring in the professional field in oral dentistry for four years, Clara came to the US to further advance her education. In May 2017, she obtained a Master’s Degree in Software Engineering from San Jose State University and headed on to pursue the love at the core of her heart—software engineering.  

In her own words, she strives to become an “ultra skilled and creative engineer who can create ground breaking technology” and this is not simply a verbal goal. Clara devotes herself in expanding and deepening her knowledge and skill sets, i.e. high proficiency in programming languages like Java and Swift and knowledge in version control, design pattern implementations, and AWS. Furthermore, Clara has accumulated experiences in mobile development (Android and iOS development) and specialized in backend development. While her past endeavors emphasized on mobile phone sensor technologies and API implementation and development, she is equipped for much more–and that is why Clara is here at Lucid VR.

Why does Clara want to join Lucid VR? “I believe Lucid’s mission aligned with my interests perfectly, [which are] visual, photography, and VR technology.” Given, skills alone can bring greatness, but skills and passion combined becomes a powerful tool for excellence. And this is exactly how Clara envisions to break through her limits at Lucid, by dipping her passion and skills into the ocean of the real market. Since cameras (3D camera, VR camera), VR and AR technologies are growing in demand, Lucid VR is the perfect place for self-driven individuals like Clara to skyrocket personal and professional growth like never before.

Here at Lucid, team members have the opportunity to explore a wide range of assignments where skills are refined and perspectives are broadened. Employees take on responsibilities as if they are running the company. In other words, working at Lucid teaches them to try new approaches while holding accountability for the corresponding consequences. A stably growing start up, like Lucid, offers creative insights, flexible accommodations, and accepts constructive feedbacks. For all of these reasons combined, Clara says, “It is very exciting to be a part of the team to contribute in Lucid’s next ground breaking products!

As 2018 kicks off, Lucid VR welcomes new Computer Vision Engineers on board. More than a Computer Vision company, Lucid VR does not just give you work to finish and report back. Rather, it gives you growth–and that’s for you to keep at the end of the day.
