Gravity Sketch

Game Network Engineer

Join Gravity Sketch as they are looking for a Game Network Engineer

Gravity Sketch is on a mission to revolutionise the way designers bring their ideas to life! We've developed the first end-to-end 3D design platform that allows teams to carry out work from the early phases of the design process all the way through to hand-off for productionisation.

Our platform helps design teams to create and communicate 3D ideas in the quickest and most intuitive way possible - whether they are globally distributed or in the same geography. The tools we’ve developed are revolutionising the way companies carry out their day to day work, fostering more collaboration and creative outputs whilst significantly reducing a product’s “time to market” making the product development process more sustainable!

The Gravity Sketch platform is accessible across VR, tablet, and web-based applications allowing users to integrate GS seamlessly into their workflow. Cross-discipline teams at companies such as Ford Motor Company and Adidas depend on the platform to collaborate and deliver world-class products both physical and digital. Being highly skilled in the use of Gravity Sketch is important for new hires in industry leaders such as Adidas sitting alongside tools like Adobe’s Photoshop.
