At High Fidelity, we understand that recreating natural social interactions in a virtual environment poses significant design challenges, especially when users connect through a variety of devices and networks. We develop innovative solutions to foster meaningful connections and empower people to collaborate, engage, and socialize in ways that feel natural and intuitive.

Though we focus on the virtual office remote and hybrid work, we believe a Game Interaction Designer who has thought deeply about how characters navigate, explore and play within virtual spaces, as well as how they interact with objects and others in it, will have the best intuitions and approaches to create novel experiences for this use case.

We are looking for an interaction designer who understands and embraces the plasticity of creating virtual environments, who is not afraid of thinking beyond skeuomorphic designs that mimic the bad things of real offices, and who instead imagines the value that could be created if employees and spaces had augmented abilities not possible in the physical world. This is a temporary gig, we anticipate 3 months, working 30-40 hours per week.

If you are a passionate interaction designer, with experience implementing strong audio, we strongly encourage you to apply.Cover letters are welcome and encouraged to help us learn more about your experience and interest in the position. We look forward to hearing from you.

High Fidelity

High Fidelity’s spatial audio enables immersive, high quality voice chat for any app — for groups of any size.


Founding Story

With the release of the Oculus and the promise of mass consumer-adoption of VR, High Fidelity set out to build the metaverse infrastructure that would support the next generation of user-generated virtual worlds and experiences. The company blazed trails for the digital worlds of tomorrow — including how these worlds will sound.


The Next Chapter

High Fidelity is more than our company name — it’s our credo. We have witnessed and experienced the transformational power of delivering high fidelity sound. We believe audio technologies should be designed for how the human brain is wired to process auditory information so people can feel as engaged with a digital experience as they would with a physical one. The portion of our lives that are spent wearing headphones should mirror the sonic richness we experience in the natural world.


Why Us?

If your team is too large, too slow, or more concerned with cutting costs than building cutting-edge technology, we might be exactly what you're looking for. We’re a small, seasoned team that trusts one another to be the expert in their domain and who are relentless about getting the job at hand done. Together, our mission is to connect people with extraordinary digital audio.
