Virtually Live is hiring an

Art Intern

Seattle, United States

Who we are:

Virtually Live is a revolutionary, immersive technology to experience live sporting events in virtual reality (VR). Our patented media system takes real-time tracked statistical data and transposes it into a digital venue to create a real time digital rendering of the event. For fans who can’t attend events in person, Virtually Live allows them to not only feel like they are there, but actually immersed in the heart of the action from the comfort of their homes. Fans have unprecedented access and control over how they watch live events—they can go anywhere in the virtual stadium, view from any position, and virtually meet up with friends around the world - giving them a True VR experience.

Virtually Live is a patented technology which develops both its own content and partners with technology companies, broadcasters and sporting organizations to develop the best user experience. We work with these companies to leverage existing data and broadcast streams to harness the full power of virtual reality technology. 

Our True VR media platform allows rights holders to enhance the existing fan experience around a live event by building social communities that drive sticky customer engagement, triggering additional revenues through subscriptions, micro-payments, personalized advertising and branding. 

Virtually Live has offices in San Francisco, Seattle, London, Switzerland and Spain.
