Empowering the next
generation of XR talent

We work with XR experts, enterprise partners and academic institutions to create an industry-driven training program with the goal to graduate
market-competitive XR talent.

Our partnership with XRTerra gives us the ability to influence both ends of the pipeline.

On one end, we get to specify the set of skills we think are the highest priority for potential candidates to learn. This helps to seed the talent pool with more specific skills like 3D UI/UX, game engine experience, 3D graphics concepts  (compared to more run-of-the-mill computer science skillsets like Javascript, python, C++.) At the other end of the pipeline, we then get immediate access to candidates that we know have the exact set of skills necessary to fit into open roles we have.
