Job Title: Software Engineer (C++/Unreal Engine)
Salary Range: Midlevel (£50,000 - 80,000) Senior (£80,000 - £95,000) Staff (£95,000 - £110,000) + Equity (EMI Stock Options)

At Light Garden we’re building Existent®, a software platform that will transform the VR sector. With Existent® you can reach out and physically interact with objects that look, feel and behave as if they were real.
We enable creators to make experiences in the virtual world feel as real as those in the real one: no controllers, no haptics, just a seamless integration of the virtual and physical world.
Whether it’s being handed a real space cocktail, high-fiving a robot, or discovering a magic crown in a treasure chest, we’re solving complex problems to unleash the full extent of people’s creative imagination. And we’re just getting started.
As one of the first software engineers to join the company you’ll have a huge impact on our success and be right at the core of the initial design and research as we build out our next generation location based VR platform. You’ll also be working alongside industry veterans from triple A games studios, big tech and West End theatre who’ll want to learn as much from you as you will from them.
Join us and help build a version of Virtual Reality like nothing before it. Virtual Reality that makes you truly feel like you’ve been transported to another world.
…and here’s what you can expect from working at Light Garden
When We Work
We realise that work is important, but shouldn’t get in the way of your personal life. That’s why we made a very intentional decision to operate a 4 day work week; around here, Monday is known as "Sunday Two”, and is off for everybody.
Our interview process is intended to be lightweight and resemble a day to day experience at Light Garden as closely as possible. You'll first have a call with our Recruiting Lead, followed by an invite to our studio where you will meet the rest of the team and have a couple of relaxed informal conversations about your personal values and the way you like to work. You will then take part in a technical interview which will either be you talking our CEO/CTO Dan through something you have built, or can instead be a pairing session with Dan on a problem using C++/Unreal that resembles the things you would be working on in the role.
If you’re passionate about VR, and building something from the ground up, in an environment created by people who care deeply about building a workplace that works for everyone, we think Light Garden would be a pretty special place, and hope you're interested in what we're doing! If you have any questions that aren’t clearly explained in this ad, please reach out to our Recruiting Lead on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to help.
Keep Calm and waka waka...
