We are creating a VR platform where communities and business teams can gather, collaborate, and play.

We already serve notable clients such as Google, Netflix, Robinhood, and Facebook, and we need help serving the increased demand.

  • and Maya)

  • Manage post-processing optimization

  • Handle and prototype GUIs in Unity


What makes you a good fit:

  • 2+ years of experience involving 3D art or game design or AR/VR or similar 

  • Strong communication and collaboration skills

  • Ability to work remotely, manage time effectively, and thrive in a fast-paced startup culture

  • Experience with optimization (ideally AR/VR)

  • Experience with creating, working with and optimizing shaders

  • Ability to quickly prototype custom animations (e.g. Menu button interactions)

  • Experience with unreal engine

  • Experience working with startups

  • Ability to do optimization for mobile devices

  • Lightmapping

  • UI/GUI Animations

  • VFX
