We need engineers who have a broad range of knowledge working with Unity, particularly on long-term projects that are actively maintained by many people.

  • Fluency with C# development & version control
  • Fluency with different VR hardware
  • Comfort in navigating problems and opportunities autonomously and independently
  • Strong writing & verbal communication skills; the ability to convey complex problems in approachable ways

What LIV Brings

  • Fully distributed company (work from (almost) anywhere in the world)
  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • A "take time when you need it" vacation policy
  • Flexible working hours
  • Mental wellness budget
  • Professional development budget
  • Virtual movie nights, gaming sessions, and other fun team events
  • Ownership over your work and ability to make a strong impact at growing startup
  • Company sponsored event trips (gaming conferences, Twitchcon etc)

What is it like working at LIV?

At LIV you can expect to work with a tight knit, collaborative team. Our goal is to continue to be, and grow, as the de facto platform for VR and AR content creation & consumption. We work hard, but make sure that we enjoy the ride and lead with a humans-first approach. 

LIV is a leader in VR capture, streaming and VTubing solutions. Our rise to fame was mixed reality capture with the globally viral Beat Saber videos, and since 2016 we’ve been leading the charge in providing the technologies for the next generation of streamers and content creators. 

By joining LIV, you’ll join a bleeding edge VR capture & streaming technology company in the world, backed by some of the biggest names in VR and AR and used by the biggest streamers and creators in the world, such as Shroud, Pewdiepie and LSToast.

  • You will be embedded on a product team, and you will meet your team members during the interview process
  • The teams at LIV are diverse, and we're excited to add another team member that will bring their own unique perspective to everything we do
