Hello! Metanaut is a small award-winning team of virtual reality enthusiasts who are passionate about building a better future. We’ve been creating VR apps & games for over 5 years now! Our focus is to develop VR experiences that spark a sense of wonder and make a positive impact on the world.
We’re expanding the size of our team to work on a brand new VR experience that will knock your socks off. We’re in the early phases of the project right now so we can’t disclose much but what we can say is: This is the job for you if you want to work on exciting, bleeding edge entertainment that pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in VR. This is a project that can only exist in VR and has never been attempted before, and we’re looking for candidates who have the chops to explore this unknown territory with us!
Successful candidates are experts in Unity and understand the engine inside and out. They are masterful in C# with working knowledge in creating custom shaders. It’s important for the candidate to explain technical concepts well and be a quick learner.
Nice to haves:
Metanaut is one of the first VR studios in Canada, and has won some of the world’s largest VR grants & competitions. Our team has backgrounds in industrial design, engineering, interactive arts, and computer science—which helps us apply proven real-world design principles to unfamiliar virtual worlds.
Our studio is entirely independent and Canadian owned and will forever stay that way. 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!
