Revolutionize VR! Oculus is looking to hire an Industrial Designer

VR existed before Oculus, but Oculus put VR on the map and in homes. When the company first announced its product, the first Rift, it made waves with how much it promised. Two screens in front of each eye, 360° tracking so you can look around, with absolutely zero latency between both screens. A seamless experience that up until then, seemed unbelievable. The company raised $2.5 million on Kickstarter, and was finally acquired by Facebook, which propelled Oculus to newer heights. Oculus has recently demo-ed the Quest, a hi-spec gaming VR headset with no wires and an in-built CPU, and teased their legacy Rift’s latest version, the Rift S in March this year. Oculus is looking for an Industrial Designer to join their team in Seattle, Washington.
