Operations Assistant

Job title: Operations Assistant
Status: Full-time
Company background:

As a pioneer in virtual reality gaming systems, Virtuix Inc. continues to break ground with cutting-edge VR technologies. Virtuix has created two entertainment products that have become global hits: Omni Pro, the commercial version of the Omni, and Omni Arena, a multiplayer configuration for Family Entertainment Centers like Dave and Buster’s. Thanks to the Omni’s popularity at over 500 venues on 5 continents, we have built a large and devoted player community (2 million plays… and counting).

In response to demand from Omni fans, we are now developing “Omni One,” a consumer version of the Omni that’s optimized for home use – light, easy to store, and with unmatched freedom of movement (incl. crouching and jumping). Omni One is a complete gaming platform. Its online game store sells games developed by Virtuix and top titles licensed from third parties.

The thrill of walking around inside video games has blown the minds of players at our commercial venues. We plan to take our success in commercial entertainment and scale it into the home. Join our mission to launch Omni One and bring our popular gaming experience to millions of homes around the world.

More about Virtuix:

Moving around virtual worlds by pushing buttons on a controller feels unnatural and static. To experience true VR, you need to walk around virtual worlds as you do in real life – using your own feet. That’s why we developed “Omni.”

Backed by over $35MM from investors, including Mark Cuban and 12 venture capital funds, Virtuix’s Omni is the first omni-directional treadmill that lets players walk and run in 360 degrees inside VR games and other virtual worlds. The Omni’s immersive experience takes VR to the next level. The system was even portrayed in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One.

Omni Pro, the commercial version, and Omni Arena, a multiplayer configuration, have become global entertainment hits. We’ve shipped over 4,000 systems to 45 countries, including to major venues like Dave & Buster’s.

In response to demand from Omni fans, we began developing “Omni One,” a consumer version that’s optimized for home use.
