Metanaut is hiring for our next exciting VR experience. This VR experience will push the boundaries of VR design and technology and will pave the way to building a metaverse. You’ll be creating a wide variety of art assets that have a stylized, realistic proportioned, low-to-mid poly look. Successful candidates display high proficiency in a wide range of art-related work ranging from the creative to the technical, including shader writing. The artist must be able to composite all art assets in Unity.
Nice to haves:
We believe VR/AR is the future, and will enable us to create, think, and play in far richer ways than we're accustomed to now. More than ever, creators have greater control over a user's faculties and so kindness (the desire to do good) and diversity (the open-mindedness to explore worlds unknown) has never been more important. And so, here at Metanaut, we have a collaborative and creative culture driven by a team of bright, hard-working, diverse, kind souls. Some of our projects come from distinguished clients, but most of them are our own. Everyone who works here has a direct impact on the direction of our projects.
Metanaut is a small award-winning team of virtual reality enthusiasts who are passionate about building a better future. Our goal is to develop VR experiences that are exceptional in design, spark a sense of wonder, and make a positive impact on the world.
We are one of the first VR studios in Vancouver, and have won some of the world’s largest VR competitions. We were accepted into the world’s largest AR grant (Magic Leap) which was only awarded to three Canadian studios. Our team members have backgrounds in industrial design, engineering, and computer science, which helps us apply proven real-world design principles to unfamiliar virtual worlds.
Our studio is entirely independent and Canadian owned. All shareholders work full-time at the studio, and we understand the importance of not sacrificing integrity and ideas for sake of profit.
We split our time between the metaverse and Vancouver, and we want you to join us in the journey!
