Ado Ato Interactive is seeking an experienced developer to assist in the building of a new immersive and interactive storytelling medium while expanding on existing technologies. This opportunity will allow the developer to experiment and be creative within his/her skill set. We are looking for a team player who wants to help us create unique and unprecedented projects after all!

We are searching for a curious and tech-savvy developer who wants to help us develop interactive and location-based experiences. The developer will also have the opportunity to work and collaborate with our team of artists, creative technologists, and producers to achieve the projects' vision and collaborate on new media projects. This is a great opportunity for any ambitious developer who like to be part of a team revolutionizing technology and storytelling. 

The developer will be able to work remotely, but certain on-site prototype tests will be necessary. The developer will regularly communicate with and report to the creative team.

This position is intended to start during Fall/Winter 2020. The production will last approximately 6-10 months (exact schedule to be discussed). 

Responsibilities

  • Conduct research on best techniques to achieve the interactivity envisioned for the projects

  • Create XR experiences such as VR, AR, and mixed reality projects

  • Work to keep the project in a state of optimal performance, retaining low latency and fast loading times
