Vacancies

Unity Developer

Full time

Initial 12-month contract
Salary, competitive, dependant on experience
Zubr HQ Bristol, partial WFH

Application Deadline: Wednesday 16th June 2021

A code test will form part of the application process

We are on the lookout for a Unity developer to join our team at the Zubr studio in Bristol. You’ll be tasked with building interactive augmented and virtual reality experiences for our range of B2B and B2B2C clients, both on your own and as part of a team. We’ve built amazing content for the Eden Project, the MOD, HS2, Tourism NI, We the Curious, Oracle, the National Gallery and Mattel  – using AR, VR, volumetric video, holograms and even 3D-printed binoculars…no two days are ever the same for our developers!

You’ll be working across a number of projects at once; liaising with the lead developer, directors and coordinator, as well as the 2D and 3D design teams. You’ll use a range of hardware to build and test interactive content, some of which may require site visits and out-of-hours working.

Prior experience of working with AR and VR technologies is desirable, but not essential – At Zubr we have our own approach to this which you’ll pick up as you work with us. We would like to see that you have an interest in immersive technologies and are willing to learn and experiment. You’ll have space to grow within the company – more than just putting your own stamp on your work, you might just find yourself pitching ideas or leading the development on whole projects further down the line.

Desired skills
  • Knowledge of network/web connectivity within a Unity environment (ie. Mirror multiplayer, server/client apps), would be greatly desirable
  • Passionate about your work and the industry – an interest in video game interactive design, crafting great user experiences, and engaged with the latest releases and the community
  • Experience with other development environments, engines and libraries, such as Javascript/Three.js, Unreal, Python, OpenCV, Arduino and Raspberry Pi would be greatly desirable
  • Experience with the preparation and configuration of 3D assets (within Unity)
  • Experience with current AR/VR technologies, such as: ARKit, ARCore, Oculus Quest, HTC Vive
  • Familiarity with Adobe Creative Suite is beneficial
  • A willingness to liaise with clients is beneficial
