UX/UI Designer, VR/AR

| Greater NYC Area
LiveLike is a funded and well-endorsed VR/AR/interactive live sports company. We have partnered most notably with FOX Sports to release Social on Fox Sports VR. We also broadcast the Superbowl LI and built French Tennis Open VR with France TV for both Mobile and VR platforms. These are just a few of the many clients we work with and we’re actively growing in all four corners of the world.
 
At our core, we are a big group of nerds, sports fanatics, and generally lovable people. We're as passionate about next-gen sport live streaming as we are about tacos, occasional dogs, and appropriately timed gifs. So our team has access to every major VR/AR/MR system, and so will you. We've worked extremely hard to get where we are right now but we wholly embrace the laid back but "get s**t done" attitude.

Your Day-to-day

  • You will evolve into an integral part of our design team - taking ownership or key features within our global VR experience. (No pressure)
  • Taste matters just as much as your ability to ideate. We work with various clients whom all have different brand aesthetics.
  • As the champion prototyper and scout, you are thinking 10 steps ahead to ensure that design direction in line with vision.
  • You will lead the charge on topics such as ‘How do we integrate Facebook messenger in a VR experience?’ or ‘What would the visualization of real-time statistics look like?’
  • Design review is a huge part of this role. You will constantly asking questions like “How can our interfaces be more logical?’ and ‘How could we cost effectively craft this feature?’
  • LiveLike is continually imagining and implementing new features into our product. Your day-to-day tasks would most commonly be whiteboarding new features and all their edge cases, discussing that work with colleagues, developing them further, making them digital, and sometimes even defending the directions to clients.
  • After feature direction and structure is settled, you will help define and push the visual style of the features while ensuring that they remain cohesive with the rest of the product.
  • Designing for VR always holds something new. Some days you’ll spend learning completely new things. From video production techniques to unique prototyping software or even VR development technologies.

 

Your background:

  • 2-3+ years of digital and/or user interaction design experience (Agency or client based is a plus)
  • A deep understanding of Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator primarily)
  • Experience working with Unity is a (big) plus.
  • You’ve got experience working with a fast team on real design execution
  • A unbridled passion for design, be it in VR, sports, gaming, or anything. We just appreciate passion...
  • You fully endorse the "no brilliant jerks" mentality
  • You’re not afraid of an honest, open, yet entirely respectful work environment.
  • Your luck with the /giphy command in Slack is inconceivable.

 

What we offer:

  • $85,000 - $105,000 Salary
  • Unlimited Vacation & Sick day policy
  • All the fun insurance-y benefits you expect
  • Relocation package
  • Tons of VR & AR equipment to play with
  • Yearly sporting events & VR stipend
