Senior VR/AR/MR Developer

Austin, TX, United States Full Time


Banjo is looking for a full-time Senior Developer to join the team immediately. This is a great role for an experienced developer who wants to build useful tools and amazing experiences for businesses and popular brands on the most modern and appealing platforms. If you’ve been locked up in the game company cycle of crunch-time, launch, layoffs, this is a very different environment. If you’ve been cranking away at a big company working on monolithic bloatware, come play with the latest tech and deliver something new every few weeks that people will actually want to use (and you’ll want to show your friends).

Based in Austin Texas, Banjo builds VR/AR/MR experiences for consumer brands, large enterprises and not-for-profit organizations. Banjo was recently founded by veterans from the mobile and entertainment industries to bring these incredible immersive experiences to a non-gaming audience.

The role:

  • Develop virtual reality and augmented reality applications for HMDs, mobile, and web
  • Mix of front-end and backend programming on various platforms and devices
  • Rapid prototyping, full project development and implementation
  • Assist with (or lead, if applicable) technical architecture for full systems
  • Work in a team environment (office off South Lamar)
  • Participate in client-facing discussions and meetings as desired/needed
  • Collaborate closely with other technical, creative, and PM team members, both internal and with partner agency or client teams

Must have:

  • Strong interest in building VR/AR/MR for business users, not just gaming/consumer apps
  • Senior-level experience developing in at least one of the following: C#, C++, RoR, Python, iOS, Android
  • Senior-level experience developing in front-end web technologies (CSS, HTML, Javascript)
  • 5+ years of professional experience as a developer
  • 2+ years of experience as a developer in an agency, consulting, or freelance environment working with multiple clients on different custom software projects
  • Comfortable working in Agile, or sometimes just agile, workflows
  • Cool working in an office with one or more well-behaved dogs wandering around

Nice to have:

  • Recent, significant Unity or UE4 experience, especially for VR or AR projects
  • Oculus, Vive, Hololens, Gear, Daydream, and/or PSVR development experience
  • Experience creating multiplayer games/apps (mobile or VR)
  • Recent, significant experience with one or more AR platforms (Vuforia, Wikitude, AR Toolkit, etc.) and it’s OK it’s you still miss Metaio, we do, too
  • Experience as a technical architect on custom software solutions for enterprise or corporate clients
  • Recent data visualization work, especially in 3D
  • Familiarity with integrating third-party visual assets, especially 3D models
  • WebVR experience
  • Shipped apps (mobile or VR)

You are:

  • Tinkerer, hacker, maker - this is a role and a company where you get to build cool stuff, and where we encourage experimentation
  • Team players - no divas, no egos, no assholes, just collaboration, communication, and empathy
  • Self-driven - not a lot of hand-holding here, but you’ll have all the tools and tech you need, and you’ll be encouraged to help shape the strategy for projects, and for the company

What We Offer:

  • Competitive compensation, equity
  • Health, dental and vision insurance
  • Generous PTO policy
  • Casual work environment
