About Megaverse

Megaverse is an interactive studio that uses digital innovation to develop bespoke immersive experiences. By merging digital innovation with theatre, film, gaming, storytelling and the visual arts, we push the creative potential of XR technologies (augmented, virtual and mixed realities).

Alongside developing AR and VR apps for clients, Megaverse are also developing a series of ‘in-house’ location based experiences. One of which, called SURGE, premiered at Sage Gateshead in June earlier this year. The piece is an immersive performance exploring climate change uitalising monolithic LED screens, motion capture and VR and featuring music by Anna Meredith, spoken word poetry by Vanessa Kisuule, and a live performance by The PappyShow.

Megaverse is led by directors Ben Carlin and John Ingle who work with an interdisciplinary team of highly skilled freelancers to create unforgettable and novel experiences by synthesising new and emerging technologies with storytelling - where the audience become active participants rather than passive spectators. The team mostly works remotely but also has a home at Kollider in Sheffield.

We are looking for a Digital Producer / Project Manager to manage the development of our projects from ideation through to delivery, working alongside directors, artists and developers to deliver exceptional immersive experiences. We are looking for someone to integrate tightly into our team and be part of our journey as we grow and develop our company and values.

This role is mostly remote, but will require periods of sporadic travel to the office and client sites, therefore we would be open to applications from regions further afield providing there is an understanding that occasional travel will be required. Our office is based in Sheffield and is used occasionally for meetings.
