Unity Engineer / VR Inverse Kinematics

Mindshow is an exciting startup focused on the mechanics of storytelling in virtual reality. We’re developing a VR-based story creation sandbox for the masses, built using the latest virtual reality and mobile technologies, and we’re looking for top developers to help us lead the charge. Come take a look at what we’re building: https://youtu.be/2p9Cx4iX47E.

The ideal candidate knows how to design and implement creative new animation algorithms in Unity and has shipped multiple game titles. You’re team-driven, never territorial, freely give credit to others, and looking for your next fun project to change the world. If this sounds like you, then you’ll love it here… we’ve got some cool stuff for you to work on. Send us your resume!

Candidate must live in Los Angeles or be willing to relocate, and must be available to work full-time from the Mindshow office in Downtown LA. Applicants with international citizenship must already be located in the US and have appropriate immigration status to take a full-time position in Los Angeles.

The Everyday View

  • Apply your skills in animation R&D, art pipeline, Unity, and C# to help build a unique story creation platform
  • Design and implement advanced animation algorithms that push the limits for inverse kinematics, physics, behavioral animation, and procedural animation
  • Implement audio and signal processing features for voice modulation, ambient audio, and sound effects
  • Work closely with artists, designers, and storytellers to design and develop even more cool new features into our VR story creation sandbox for Vive and Oculus
  • Contribute original ideas towards all aspects of production and development
  • Research and implement innovative ways of using new and emerging technologies
  • Produce production-quality code
  • Provide technical leadership in areas of specialization

The Kind of Person We're Looking For

  • Equally left and right brained, able to design and implement creative animation algorithms and art pipeline techniques in Unity that push the limit of our platform and run efficiently in real-time
  • Strong experience in inverse kinematics, audio engineering, math, Unity, and C#
  • Portfolio of two recently shipped games or applications using Unity
  • Interest and experience in all aspects of interactive 3D computer graphics: animation (kinematic, IK, dynamic, behavioral, mocap, etc.), effects, mathematics, physical-based simulation, lighting, shading, audio/video, UI/UX, etc.
  • A passion for learning new technologies
  • 5+ years’ work experience outside of college
  • Cool and fun to work with ;-)

Plusses that Get You Noticed

  • Experience with virtual reality (Vive, Oculus, PSVR) and VR SDKs (SteamVR plugin for Unity, Unity VR API, OpenVR) is highly desired
  • Experience in filmmaking as well as game development
