VRChat offers a first-of-its-kind, game-changing platform that provides an endless collection of social VR experiences and gives the power of creation to its robust community. With over 250,000 worlds and growing, VRChat’s vision is to allow users to bring their imaginations to life and help shape the metaverse anywhere in the world on any device.
As a UX/UI Designer, you’ll be working collaboratively with the rest of the VRChat Creators Team to help improve, shape, and construct existing and upcoming creator-facing tools. The Creators team develops and maintains the content creation systems – from Unity Editor Windows to Standalone Content Management Applications, Documentation Sites, new Client Features, Example Worlds and more!
As part of that process, you’ll be creating and maintaining design materials while ensuring they are communicated effectively to those requiring them. You’ll be guiding the design of features from concept to release then iterating on them as the team and community provide feedback. You should be able to lead design efforts and align them with the company strategy. You’ll be working with the QA and Community Teams to address this input and decide what to act on as a priority. You should be able to navigate this live platform environment with a solid understanding of what design choices mean for the community and team. You should also be able to manage sometimes blunt feedback from the community with flexibility and grace. You will report to the Chief Creative Officer and work with other designers across VRChat’s various teams to ensure cohesion across our efforts.
