You know game development and you have experience developing games. Maybe you have even shipped a game or two. You know the struggles of iterating quickly enough and delivering results across the team. Particularly, you know that 3D assets such as animations are time consuming to produce.

You want to build the tools to make processes like animating easier and quicker.

That's exactly what you can do with us. As the CTO of Sidetracked, you can help shape the foundation of our core tech and expand our vision with ideas of your own.

Our main technology stacks are Unity and SteamVR. Experience with these will be a huge advantage. Other than that, you can expect to be working with inverse kinematics, linear algebra, character animation, machine learning/AI and other techy buzzwords.

Your first months here will be spend getting to know the tech and working on a beta version of our solution that can be used in production with our current customers.

We're a small team, so you can expect a close relationship with the other founders.

You will join with the status of co-founder which comes with a large portion of equity.

We are a small company in Copenhagen who are working hard on making a new generation of creative tools. Our tools can be used by anyone in the production team to communicate their ideas to the rest of the team, regardless of their experience with animation and other 3D content. Create animations quicker than with current solutions and without compromising the quality of the outcome. We believe that 3 dimensional content should be created with 3 dimensions of freedom.
