Mission: With touch, we make people’s digital lives more personal, vivid and meaningful.
About Haptic Technology
Touch is at the heart of the most powerful experiences. It informs, it excites, and it humanizes—bringing people and brands closer together.
Our TouchSense® technology enables these connections by extending the power of touch to the digital world. With our haptic technology, we’re able to make the actuator inside consumer devices vibrate in highly precise ways. So that users are able to feel the resistance of buttons on a mobile screen—the G-forces applied to a car around an S curve in a game—or the percussion of an explosion in a movie.
Haptics feel great for business too. Brands all over the world are discovering that touch can be a powerful differentiator in phones, wearables, and even cars, enabling richer user experiences and more intuitive interfaces. It’s also delivering tangible results for content creators. Game designers, advertisers, and video providers are using our haptic technology to create highly immersive experiences that improve both engagement and profitability.

I have been working at Immersion Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)
Company is solid and has a great business model. It's been around forever, but most people have never heard of it because it doesn't "make" products, but licenses their software/hardware to major companies. Ever heard of XBox/Playstation? Immersion haptics are in there. Cadillac? Yeah there too. Mobile phones? Yup in there too. They have money in the bank, so you feel secure. Also, there is a great work/life balance. No one wants you to get burned out. Oh, and they are big on patents. They set aside time for company wide "Innovation Days" where you can work in teams to come up with patent ideas so you could actually become an inventor.
Commute can be bad unless you live close or take the train to the Great America, Santa Clara station, or light rail to N. First Street at Tasman Station, or have an electric car to get into the carpool lanes.
Advice to Management
Get more help staffing. We have so much opportunity and so many cool projects to work on.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Immersion Corporation (San Jose, CA) in July 2017.
They set up a time for a 30-min interview over the phone. This was done through a recruiter, and I had to update my resume with only a job description, while it was said to me that the company did not want to disclose its name until they were sure that they would want to interview me. Once the name of the company was given to me, I researched everything about it, including its detailed history, its founder and his biography, interests, books he wrote, the patents the company filed and who were the authors, in-depth haptics theory, company competitors and their relative advantage, possible business strategies, careers of people who work there, listened to their presentations, how I could personally contribute... I even designed a few haptics applications for mobile devices, and felt like it was a perfect position for me. None of this was was even remotely touched upon during the interview.
