Myr is a game studio started by veteran Social VR devs working in the industry since 2014. Social VR has been focusing more on building a platform and not enough on building great games. We hope to build these great experiences first. We are a small and fully remote team of designers, artists and engineers based in US, Europe, Asia and Australia.

We are looking for a Toolkits Engineer to build tools that power all our experiences. You will be working on things such as physics system, interactions, locomotion, amongst many others. The game we are currently focusing on combines physical gameplay, modular design and shooting in VR.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain a toolkit that would be used to implement various gameplay mechanics, Interactions and Locomotion in VR.
  • Write efficient and optimized code.
  • Collaborating with gameplay to identify their needs, guiding and supporting content creators.
  • Be a voice and present your ideas and thoughts regarding any aspect of the game.
  • Regular playtests and feedback so we get to experience our game first hand and see what's fun and what isn't and what needs fixing.

  • Playtest everything, all the time.
  • Focus on fun, and repeatedly ask, was this fun? Why or why not? How can we make it more fun?
