Join the VRChat Team!
VRChat offers a first-of-its kind, game-changing platform that provides an endless collection of social VR experiences and gives the power of creation to its robust community. With over 250,000 worlds and growing, VRChat’s vision is to allow users to bring their imaginations to life and help shape the metaverse anywhere in the world on any device.
As a Web UX/UI Designer, you’ll be responsible for designing and maintaining the VRChat web platform that allows users and creators to manage their digital content. As part of that process, you’ll be creating and maintaining design materials while ensuring they are communicated effectively to those requiring them. You’ll be guiding the design of features from concept to release, and then iterating on them as the team and community provide feedback. You will lead major design efforts and align them with the company strategy. You’ll also be working with the Insights Team on adding and monitoring analytics for various deployed systems. Developing for a massive live community allows designers to quickly gauge whether or not a feature is performing as intended or needs immediate iteration. You’ll be working with the QA and Community Teams to address this input and decide what to act on as a priority. You should be able to navigate this live platform environment with a solid understanding of what design choices mean for the community and team. You should also be able to manage sometimes blunt feedback from the community with flexibility and grace. You will report to the Chief Creative Officer and work with other designers across VRChat’s various teams

We are one of the leading Virtual World platforms, hosting one of the largest active online communities of users and creators. Our community has created millions of pieces of content and spends many hours in-world in a given session. Countless friendships, groups and events have formed, and continue to grow daily.We have launched on Steam (Vive, Index, Mixed Reality) and Oculus Home (Rift and Quest), with plans for more platforms into the future. VRChat does not require VR for use, but many of our desktop users upgrade quickly after spending time on the platform.
We have secured key investment from major partners, allowing us to grow and develop VRChat for the foreseeable future. You only have to dive into VRChat for a few hours to see its potential. You can follow our blog and dev streams to see more shared details of our roadmap. You can also find more information on VRChat here on our site. If you want to take a look at what it’s like to develop content for VRChat, take a look at our developer documentation.
While we work hard to build the platform, it is our users that create all the content. Using the Unity game engine with our SDK, people create and upload their creations to share with their friends and the world. In addition to building content, users put on performances, play games, chat, make friends, roleplay, hold events and stream using services such as Twitch and Youtube. Additionally, we have one of the largest communities on Discord.
WHY WORK WITH US
Creating the Future
VRChat is still in an Early Release phase. That means much of the platform is still in development and under exploration. There’s plenty of room for people to join us and be instrumental in helping shape major pieces. We also work closely with our Community to gather feedback and grow together. Our goal is to spend the coming years building VRChat into one of the most successful community-driven social VR platforms in existence. To do that we will continually iterate and expand on the VRChat platform to allow more methods of creation and expression. We have plans to monetize eventually in ways we think will foster community creativity and fun. We will also continue to expand our team and business relationships with talented people who share our vision and passion.
The VRChat team all work remotely. We are distributed around the United States, Canada and Europe. We have semi-flexible working hours with some core hours in the Pacific (UTC -7/-8) time zone. It really doesn’t matter where you work from, as long as you have a great internet connection and the ability to connect to the VRChat platform. We’ve also recently launched on the Oculus Quest, which is a really handy travel-ready version of VRChat.
We are a passionate, dedicated team that understands the VRChat platform and works well together. We have grown very carefully, mostly hiring good folks from our Community and past people we’ve worked with. Since we are remote, we conduct part of the interview process where candidates meet the team in VR using VRChat. We look for people that share our vision, are self-starters and good communicators.Our team spends a significant amount of time in VRChat for fun as well as for work. Many of the team have other interests and talents that come from their love of development, VR, virtual worlds, or just being creative.VRChat fosters a diverse, creative, and collaborative environment where anyone can contribute to any of the ongoing projects or direction of the roadmap at any time. We also do our best to listen carefully to our Community, testing out features with them in small, large, and community-wide Open Beta tests to collect feedback. We are also friends with many people in our community, having met them through VRChat, IRL meetups, and conferences.
