Work with Zubr

Fancy a career working in immersive media content?
Here’s your chance to join one of the UK’s fastest growing AR/VR companies at our studio in Bristol.

Current vacancies

We are currently inviting applications for the following roles:

Full time
Salary dependent on experience

We are on the lookout for an experienced 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. Just last year we built a VR experience for the Eden Project, a virtual showcase for the MOD and awe-inspiring AR heritage apps for the National Gallery and Bristol Old Vic – no two days are ever the same for our developers!

You’ll be the lead developer across a number of projects at once; delegating tasks to other developers/artists, and liaising with the directors and coordinator. 

We will give you the space to grow within the company – more than just putting your own stamp on your work, you might just find yourself pitching ideas or directing whole projects further down the line. 

Don’t worry if you haven’t got experience working with AR or VR specifically. At Zubr we have our own approach to this which you’ll pick up as you work with us.
