Quebec City, Quebec
At OVA / StellarX, we’re all about people, spatial computing, and XR experiences; it’s what we do best and it’s what makes us different. To design ethical immersive experiences that foster well-being and community building, we start with ourselves. As a team, we’re committed to maintaining a culture that’s open, inclusive, and diverse. In our workspace, Crew members feel valued for their work and are always recognized for what they bring.
We’re on a mission to design immersive spaces that are out of this world! Designed with accessibility and privacy in mind, StellarX empowers everybody to imagine, create, and explore! Not only are we reshaping realities, but we’re using XR to transform lives.
We’re looking for a Visual Designer to join our fun-loving Design Crew. If you’re known for your uncanny attention to detail, trend-driven eye, pixel-perfectionist ways, and infallible design judgement, please keep on reading. 😉 Plus, if you’re a natural collaborator and proactive problem-solver with experience working in a cross-functional interdisciplinary work environment, you may very well fit right in.
As a Visual Designer, you’ll work with our Design, Marketing, Development, and Culture teams to bring our brand and, somewhat wild, ideas to life, with style (of course). Expect to roll up your sleeves and pitch in from beginning to end to ensure that our brand vibe is communicated clearly, consistently, and coherently across all channels and mediums. Expect to put your full range of brand strategy, website development, visual style, and interaction design skills to good use, as you’ll take part in fun brainstorming sessions, advocate brand strategy, own style guidelines, explore visual experimentations, and even delve into product thinking from time to time. Although we’ve been around for a while, we’re a small, yet mighty Crew of passionate individuals looking to impact the world, both virtual and IRL. So, if you’re the compassionate, easy-going, artsy type with a passion for design and a flair for adventure, we should chat. 😍
