Who We Are:
Immersed is a well-funded ($12M to-date), seed-stage Techstars startup, partnered with Facebook, HTC, & Microsoft to build AR/VR offices! We're 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 an experienced Senior Unity Architect (Unity/C#) to partner with us in making working together in Virtual Reality performant and reliable. As an emerging medium, Virtual Reality requires extremely optimized code at runtime. We are looking for a self-starter who can autonomously identify new ways of enhancing that user experience through optimizing overall system architecture that also minimizes internal tech debt.
We believe great engineering helps people solve their problems, accomplish their goals, and brings delight to their everyday lives.

If you believe the same, we should talk!

Required Qualifications:
• Helps deploy Unity builds with experience in DevOps & working within teams in a CI/CD environment.
• Expert in XR HMDs and deployment tools in Unity
• Comfortable with API integrations in Unity
• Work closely with other system developers to implement new, back-end functionality in the VR app
• Connect the VR app to various external systems using known protocols and APIs
• Experience rapidly iterating on product based on production-level user-feedback
• Experience developing, performance profiling, and optimizing across multiple VR platforms (in Unity), specifically Oculus Quest and Quest 2 (Vive is a bonus)
• Excellent software engineering fundamentals (ie., OO Design Principles)
• Extensive experience developing 3D games/experiences with C# and the .NET Framework in Unity
• Experience with Source Control (git)
• Exceptional team player with demonstrated competencies working cross-functionally to deliver results
• Experience with scaling to a large customer base
• Good written and communication skills (English)

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:
• Experience with startups that have gone through Techstars, Y Combinator, or similar accelerator programs
• Strong understanding of client/server application design
• Experience using another cross-platform engine like Unreal

• Salary: $75k - $120k
• Equity: $100k - $175k (at current valuation, which grows over time)
• Benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision

Please include:
• A link to work you’ve done
• A link to your Github profile, if you use it

NOTE: We do not work with freelancers, external recruiters, agencies, or development shops.

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.
