We believe that virtual reality and specifically the new generation of stand alone units provide the opportunity to learn a new language in an immersive spatial context that has never been possible before. That's why Chatterbug's VR team is working with our extensive and experienced team of curriculum developers and educators to design and develop immersive experiences that help students acquire and retain vocabulary and grammar more intuitively and efficiently. We are now looking for a Senior Virtual Reality Software Engineer to join us in exploring and discovering what VR can do to empower language learners!

As a Senior Software Engineer
You are a 3D game or virtual reality software engineer who is curious to explore with us how virtual reality can aid language learning. You will join a small but experienced development team and are comfortable with multiple aspects of game or VR development.
are experienced and interested in working with the game engine Unity
and think that providing a highly performant experience on a mobile
device like the Oculus Quest is an interesting challenge.
Ideally you have first-hand knowledge of what works and doesn't tend to work in VR and can creatively work with others to build amazing experiences. You want to work in a team that iterates quickly, listens to real users and ships fast.
You’re an active learner whose passions may include learning languages. (If you know a language other than English please tell us!)
Although we are a small team, we have a big product. We are an experienced team with backgrounds at GitHub and other major tech companies with funding from top investors in Silicon Valley and Europe. Our team works extremely reasonable hours and we have a strong commitment to work-life balance.
We currently teach German, English, Spanish, and French using our cutting-edge learning platform, and we're constantly looking for ways to help learners at every stage of their journey: that's why we're exploring new ground, like virtual reality and live streaming. But beyond language learning, we’re on a bigger mission to help make lots of jobs for people who only need one skill: how to speak their native language. We have an international team and an international product, and we’re proud of it.
