Creative Unreal Developer (full time/hybrid)
UNIT9 is looking for two Unreal Developers to help us craft projects that bridge innovation, mobile, VR/AR and digital platforms.
At UNIT9, we are looking for a talented and creative Unreal Developer to work at the highest level of immersive, virtual and augmented reality. As a member of our team you will be responsible for implementing game functionality, translating design ideas, concepts, and requirements into a functional and engaging game. Our ideal candidate will have 2-5 years of experience in Unreal Development technologies, strong programming and coding skills, a keen eye for detail, and the analytical skills to identify potential issues with a design plan. Working across many different departments, this role requires a candidate with excellent communication skills, a proactive attitude and a good team ethic to unify a common vision.
You are an intuitive problem solver, constantly searching for new and innovative ways to shape a narrative through interactive technologies. This role will be unique for your breadth of knowledge across creative tools, development environments and will engage your insatiable curiosity to explore and learn new skills. A background/knowledge in video data stream through game engine would be welcomed.
Your day to day role is hands-on, with a focus on conceptualising, ideating, prototyping, designing and building tech-based innovative and immersive solutions in close collaboration with creatives, technologists and other disciplines.
As a Creative Technologist on the team your initial focus will be on a specific technical ecosystem that merges live camera video stream on construction site and BIM model, with the final goal to create an immersive solution that helps construction managers to make decisions remotely.
After a few months on your first project, you will gradually move into other deliverables focusing on diverse immersive solutions for global brands in leading industries. You will be an experimenter and an advocate for creating engaging user experiences. You will look beyond the design and UX model that have been established and focus on product potential – how to make what we’ve crafted even more engaging for the user.
