AR Development Tools Support (Intern)
Employment: Paid Internship (3 months)
We are Zappar, the world’s leading Augmented Reality platform and creative studio. It's our mission to democratize AR & MR.
Our team has created groundbreaking experiences for the world's biggest brands - showcasing how AR technology can transform packaging, illuminate events and elevate marketing campaigns with innovative, engaging content.
Our ZapWorks toolkit puts the power of AR in the hands of designers and developers, enabling them to push the boundaries of interactive creativity, both with and without code.
We are also the proud creators of ZapBox, the first affordable, mixed reality kit that allows developers and businesses to reimagine how they design, build and create 3D experiences.
About this role
This internship will be within Zappar’s Learning & Support team.
Learning & Support at Zappar is responsible for creating documentation and tutorial content, answering support queries, and delivering workshops on our ZapWorks tools. You can check out some of the work we produce on our documentation website.
This role will focus on creating learning resources and answering support queries for both ZapWorks Studio and our newly released Universal AR SDKs.
Within Universal AR, your mission will be to work with our development team to help create example projects, video tutorials and other types of learning content that help to make the awesome features of this new product as widely adopted as possible.
You will also get the opportunity to work with ZapWorks Studio, which is our fully integrated 3D toolkit for building AR content for both apps and mobile web. Studio provides an easy to use GUI for developing animated face, world and image tracking experiences, and also includes support for scripting (TypeScript) for more complex interactions.
Creating AR content requires both creative and technical skills and you’ll be working with the below technologies so it’d be great if you had some knowledge of them or at least a keen interest!
- ThreeJs, A-Frame, Unity
- 3D models
- User experience design
- An interest in the augmented & virtual reality landscape
We are aware this is an internship though, so we’re not expecting stacks of experience: what we’re looking for is a hunger to learn and grow your skills, whilst contributing to what we believe is an incredibly exciting roadmap.
Why intern at Zappar?
At Zappar, we love seeing our staff members grow in their careers and we always make time to ensure that junior staff are given time to ask questions, make mistakes and learn. To that point, our two technical founders, Connell Gauld and Simon Taylor, started Zappar straight out of University, and we are proud to remain founder-led 10 years into our journey.
Whilst we are fully remote currently (our offices in Chiswick, London are open if you prefer), we have been able to adapt to the changing work environment by focusing on great communication.
As an intern, you can expect to join in with the Learning & Support team’s daily standup (remote), join all the relevant slack channels for projects, as well as have a weekly half an hour 1:1 with the team member responsible for managing you.
We welcome applications from all groups: if you feel you have something to contribute to this exciting area, then please do get in touch.
