Since then, they have had enquiries from across the world for their specialist Virtual Studio technology and are investing in a brand-new team for this purpose.

They specialise in capturing, processing and visualising live sports data using innovative, attractive and informative on-screen graphics and augmented reality.

And yes: your work will be seen by hundreds of millions of people all over the world.
Sounds pretty good? I know. Here's what will make you the right candidate:
"Who you are" is a much more important question to them than "what have you done". You will see a list below of the skills they are looking for, but curiosity, self-drive and transferable skills will be valued equally, if not more.
Experience/a portfolio demonstrating the following would be ideal:
*Knowledge of Unreal Engine and the Blueprint visual scripting system.
*Skills in technical content creation - eg. this might include 3D modelling, material/shader authoring, VFX creation, lighting, animation etc. (you don't need them all).
*Any programming/scripting experience (eg. C++, C#, Java, Python) would be a bonus.
You might be recently graduated with no commercial experience, or if you have years of exactly this type of work under your belt, or you might be somewhere in between. In any case if you love design, graphics, and know Unreal Engine; please apply.
