Way back, well, not that way back––in 2014, our founders John and Lixin met working at MIT. Lixin was a PhD candidate and graduate of Tsinghua University’s famous computer science program, and John was a physician completing his MBA while doing research at the MIT Media Lab. At the time, John was looking for a new way to power small health devices and Lixin was working on a math proof to calculate how to shape magnetic fields in real time. They both wanted to transform power from a limited resource into limitless potential to build the power infrastructure for the next generation of incredible devices. After more than a year working together in Lixin’s lab, in late 2015, they founded Spansive (formerly known as Pi).
Fast forward to today, John and Lixin have brought together the world-class team at Spansive to build the world’s most advanced wireless charging products and technology. They are curiosity in action, building concepts into products designed for people, not just devices. They are the collective genius behind Spansive’s software-defined induction technology, award-winning design, and deeply inclusive culture. The Spansive team has launched and shipped over fifteen products at companies like Apple, Intel, and Texas Instruments, and they are always looking for new, curious minds to join them.
