Who We Are:
Immersed is a well-funded ($4M to-date), Seed stage Techstars startup, partnered with Facebook to build Virtual Reality Offices! We're an extremely strong team of engineers whose aim is to immerse distributed teams into a virtual office to maximize productivity so they can work with their team from anywhere! We do this by offering unique virtual working environments (like working from a space station or lodge nestled up in the mountains during winter). We are also working on some of the latest hand-tracking technology our space has to offer to make working in virtual reality that much of a better experience. This is by no means an easy mission to accomplish, but with the world's best team, we're excited to revolutionize the future of work!

Who You Are:
We’re looking for a self-motivated front-end engineer to partner with us in helping make the experience of working together in Virtual Reality better. We’re always looking for self-motivated product and visual designers who understand great design is more than how a product looks or feels. We’re looking for someone who can take user feedback about design and engage with our users to deliver high-quality experiences that keep people engaged and productive.

Required Qualifications
We're looking for someone who has:
• Ideally 5+ years of experience shipping high-quality products
• A great eye for innovative & effective design
• A collaborative mindset, recognizing that most great outcomes are accomplished by teams, not individuals
• Empathy with the many different types of users who use Immersed’s UIs
• An interest in building UIs with modern tools like ES6, React, Redux, PostCSS, Flow, and Webpack
• Experience with using Source Control (git)
• An ability to think through customer requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving their problems
• A passion about performance, accessibility, and API design
• A high bar for quality of code and quality of user experience
• Comfortability working solo in frontend codebases from scratch all the way to large codebases with many stakeholders
• Attention to the details
• The ability to wear many hats as different needs arise

Must be very willing to help co-workers and be sacrificial with time. Our work-culture is very much like a warm family, not a cold office.

Bonus Points:
• Entrepreneurial mindset or small startup experience
• Proficiency in Graphic Design (and associated tools)
• Experience designing/creating for VR apps

Please include:
• A link to your portfolio/work

An Insider's view of Immersed [Techstars '17]

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office is chill but can quickly turn exciting with new feature releases or goals met. There’s flexibility - whether bringing your dog or breaking in the middle of the day to work out. Whenever someone goes to pick up lunch or a coffee, it often turns into a team thing. We gather in VR for meetings or just to work with our remote team members.


Director of Accounting

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Building a productivity tool that is flexible, powerful, and intuitive in VR. Balancing these three things isn't easy, but all three are necessary to make working in VR seamless, enjoyable, and even preferable. With nearly infinite variations in work flows, hardware, and software - we are laser-focused on making this a reality for the world.


VR Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

The ability to be creative along with the technical knowledge to execute. Ability to give and receive critical feedback while being respectful of others. A passion for learning new skills and honing old ones. Having risky ideas along with conservative fall backs.
Being able to travel the road of failures to success.


Lead Technical 3D Artist

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

To be a very successful company, the best ideas MUST win, not office politics or ranking. And if I've actually surrounded myself with some of the world's most brilliant people, I'd be a fool to not get their thoughts/ideas. Everyone on the team, including myself, is directly incentivised to let the best ideas win, irrespective of whose idea it was.



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Remote work availability is good. It's good for employees, employers, the environment, and local economies. We want to make remote work accessible to everyone. Our primary goal is to not only make remote collaboration as effective as in person, but to one day make it more effective by transcending physical limitations.
