About Alta

Alta is a Sydney-based Virtual Reality start-up. Since 2016 we have worked on the multiplayer game A Township Tale and have grown from the 3 founding members to over a dozen passionate developers. At Alta, each team member wears multiple hats and is committed to our overall mission in developing a ground-breaking VR experience for players worldwide.

We are passionate game developers who played and built games all our lives. We founded Alta with the goal of creating a strong studio culture based on respect for our players, professionalism, and ownership of the work we create. We believe that it is impossible to create epic games without great studio structure and intimate communication with our players.

We are now fully remote and have several team members in different time zones. We are a very tight knit team and finding a great team fit is just as important to us and finding the right skillset.

We're hiring developers, engineers, producers, a 3D artist, and a social media / community manager. You can view (and share) all of our openings here.
