Full Time vvvv developer. Fun and creative apps


#1

At YR we create personalisation experiences for live events and retail installations and our vision is to become global leaders in customised merchandise.

We currently employ 15 people in the UK, working alongside a large team of event delivery contractors, and have a growing office in New York. Our ‘We are YR’ values; we are one, we pioneer, we deliver, and we evolve, are integral to how we do business and work together as a team.

Watch our showreel, checkout our website and specifically our case studies. All our software is VVVV! It’s a great opportunity to get a tonne of experience using vvvv in a commercial but creative setting.

Our core product, YR Designer, allows end users to customise a large range of items such as a tshirt or keyring and take the printed version away minutes later. We use YR Designer as a base project to create highly customised versions with unique behaviours and features specific to our clients brands and marketing campaigns.

We now need at least one full time developer to help us improve upon the success of YR Designer and our other interactive products. We want to make our products even better for us and our customers and help us to grow into the company we can become. This is an exciting time as we are just at the start of building a capable and responsive team with resources for R&D (think digital knitting, CNC cutting/engraving, embroidery, cut-fold-stick cardboard models). Also, because the role is new, the role holder will be able to help shape not just the role itself but the team and direction that the company is going. It’s also not just software dev, it’s everything that goes with that such as working with our sales team and clients or wire-framing apps.

We’re looking for a full-time VVVV Developer who can work from our office in East London.
