RJ Pittman, former product chief at eBay, was assigned as CEO of the 3D capture company Matterport.
Matterport is a 3D media technology company using computer vision and sensor technologies to create the next generation of engaging photography that will enable more immersive interactions on Web, mobile, and VR – including the ability to engage with spaces as they are today and the ability to visualize future changes.
It is the first company to develop a low-cost, easy to use an end-to-end system that works for large B2B2C markets, and we’re quickly building an ecosystem around that application class. Matterport makes it incredibly easy for anyone to a realistic 3D model of the world around them that they can engage with and share over the Internet.
David Gausebeck, co-founder and CTO of Matterport said that the company is approaching a tipping point in market adoption of 3D models to transform how a building is designed, developed, experienced and managed. The commercial applications are quickly unfolding, and Matterport’s industry-leading technology is well-positioned to drive rapid market expansion. He also said that Pittman’s operating experience at scale, paired with his entrepreneurial DNA and deep product vision, will be instrumental to unlocking the full potential of the Matterport’s breakthrough technology and unparalleled 3D media and data.
Prior to Matterport, Pittman spent five years in eBay where he led the product, design, engineering, mobile, payments, and brand as CPO. He also led the global e-commerce platform for Apple’s online stores and led product innovation for Google’s next generation. Pittman also served as co-founder and CEO at Groxis.
According to Pittman, Matterport’s Cloud is an unrivaled dataset of precision 3D environments that represents an enormous opportunity to scale the company’s data services business exponentially. This will open up new strategic partnerships and investments.
The company had a revenue of $33 million in 2017.
