Do you have an entrepreneurial mindset and interest in working in a fast-moving product space at the intersection of gaming, technology and live entertainment? Come help us define the future of live music! Together we'll create amazing experiences for audiences and set new creative boundaries for live performers. 

Wave is an entertainment technology company and creator of the world’s first multi-channel virtual entertainment platform for live concerts. Using proprietary content production tools and live broadcast technology, Wave gives performing artists a platform to perform live for audiences around the world, while bringing fans a new type of shared, interactive experience. We are looking for an experienced Unity Technical Artist to help build and evolve our library of Wave show Templates, the set of “starter shows” that makes it faster and easier for creative teams to produce live virtual concerts. 

This role will be part of the Wave product team working directly with the Product Manager to define and evolve Templates as a product, and to develop and execute on the Templates roadmap. The Templates Designer will also work very closely with Wave content artists and show designers to ensure that Wave Templates reflect the creative framework, tools and processes we use to build our shows. Working with these stakeholders, the Templates Designer will help evolve Wave’s show creation framework to balance content quality, scope and uniqueness vs. production speed and efficiency. Enabling audience interactions is also an important part of Wave shows, and the Templates Designer will collaborate with game designers to script interaction features and gameplay mechanisms into our Templates.

The ideal candidate will be a 3D Generalist with deep Unity experience who enjoys thinking structurally and building systems for content development. We’re looking for candidates who have experience working with, or ideally have built, structured asset library frameworks and content development pipelines for real-time production use cases.

An Insider's view of Wave

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Wave is the most positive job environment I've ever been in. Everyone I work with is very supportive of my work and my lifestyle (LGBTQ+). We enjoy being able to go to lunch together, hang out in Zoom after work, and collaborating on personal music and art projects. When you're Wave, you're family.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The music team at Wave is small but mighty. Success on our team requires folks to take initiative and step up as leaders, but also work efficiently as a team. We are authentic music lovers who operate with an artist-first mentality, but also balance insights from our Business Development and Marketing to ensure that we reach company goals together.
