Data Collection manager

Someone once said that “a person’s eyes are a gateway to their soul”. At Tobii we say that “pictures of eyes and faces are a key to Tobii’s future success!” 

This is not perhaps as poetic as the first saying but very true none the less!

So why do we begin this ad with such semi-poetic drivel do you ask? Because, Tobii Tech is now in need of a Manager for our Data Collection Team, a vital key for the development of our products and since you’re still reading, we at least caught you attention! 🙂
