Looking around the Lab you'll see arduinos, a quadrocopter, some Vives
and on some days the odd mouse and keyboard.

We create many different tools and apps, ranging from websites, mobile tools and in house workflow apps to VR solutions using the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift + Touch.

Why Work For Us

SAOTA VR aims at bridging the gap between analogue and digital space through alternative methods of human interface design.

With a wide ranging skill-set from architecture and CGI to aerial photogrammetry and virtual reality development, we have a passion to deliver the future today.

Our Culture

Currently the VR Lab sits alongside SAOTA's media and CGI Departments in a neighboring building to the main office. Approx: 22 persons.

We are neighbored by more that 150 staff members ranging from architects to advisers and support staff.

Our Engineering Processes

Most projects start in a notepad or on a whiteboard before moving onto rapid prototyping and feature implementation in Unity3D.

A wide range of input and output devices ranging from arduino to the HTC Vive allows us to experiment for a range of different platforms.

From here deeper engineering and code completion take projects into workable and testing phases.

A workable 'prototype' soon becomes a tool/product for someone else.

Usually testing, iteration, design/development critique takes these prototypes into a bugfixing stage where the project will remain until completion.

Our Hiring Process

Some forms and an interview lead to a 3 month paid 'internship' - a probation period, where you will undergo '*rigorous'* training and undertake mini virtual reality based hackathons to test and grow your skill set, one suitable for a more permanent role.
