You will be part of a team that is leading innovation in the VR/AR enterprise space by utilizing what is great about the game industry, while shedding some of its negative aspects. We do not crunch, our salaries are more competitive, our projects generally have shorter development cycles, and we do not layoff teams after projects are completed.
Everyone on the team is self-motivated, has a positive attitude, and great interpersonal skills. Our projects are driven by innovation, not by necessity. If you are interested in a career where your hard work is always noticed and appreciated among a team of true professionals, then this is the place for you.
