HERE’S WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR IN AN AUGMENTED REALITY LENS CREATOR:

Fully Remote and Full Time.

Hashtag Our Stories is looking for a talented AR Lens Creator with a self-driven interest in all things camera tech, including AR, VR, lenses, filters, 3D modelling, rotoscoping and more. As an AR Lens Creator, you’ll conceptualise, storyboard and create AR lenses that help others tell and share their positive, real-life stories.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

Working closely with an experienced team with diverse lens-creating skills, your job is to pitch and create lenses. Every job will be different but our main focus is making lenses that help people share their positive stories on predominantly Snapchat but also Instagram and Facebook. 

Some lenses will be fun, some educational, some might innovate around the tech and others might help us visualise a problem. Most of the time, the lenses will work together with a story that our producer / journalism teams are telling for our 7 daily shows to make the stories more engaging. Every day you’ll be pitching, storyboarding, creating, uploading and learning about unique new lenses.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS

Experience in Spark AR or Lens Studio.

Crucially, you should be fully immersed in current tech trends and innovation and have a real passion for crafting useful lenses that will help others tell their stories. 

A person who would really excel at this job would have experience in creating multiple lenses as well as have additional skills in 3D modelling, coding, rotoscoping or illustration. 

There is no specified degree needed for this job but you should be able to show that you have the skills, experience and passion with a good portfolio of work.
