Meta Isn’t the Only Company on the Hunt for Virtual Reality Talent

Which firms have posted probably the most open jobs for digital actuality (VR) expertise?

In the event you guessed Meta—which is betting its very existence on the “Metaverse,” or an ecosystem of VR and augmented actuality (AR) apps—you’d truly be unsuitable, based on a brand new examine by Revelio Labs and Bloomberg. Since October 2021, consulting agency Accenture has posted probably the most VR-related jobs, adopted by Meta, Autodesk, Qualcomm, and Apple:

“As Accenture rapidly expands its providers within the metaverse, its focus is barely completely different than Meta’s. Once we examine the ability share variations between Accenture and Meta, we see that the VR positions in Accenture have a a lot greater share in design-focused abilities whereas these in Meta have a larger emphasis on analysis and product growth,” Ben Zweig, Revelio Labs’ CEO, wrote in a LinkedIn posting in regards to the examine.

“As a specialist in digital transformation and implementation, Accenture isn’t trying to conduct groundbreaking analysis,” Zweig added, “however is probably hoping to leverage current instruments to assist its purchasers adapt and function within the metaverse.”

Meta got here out of the proverbial gate sturdy, with an enormous spike of VR-related hiring that peaked in January 2022; ever since, nonetheless, its rivals have surged forward. Between April and June 2022, hiring for digital actuality roles declined a shocking 81 p.c, most probably on account of firms tightening budgets within the face of financial uncertainty.   

Meta could face elevated competitors from rivals reminiscent of Apple, which rumors counsel is working exhausting by itself VR and/or AR headset for launch someday in 2023. Google can be reportedly testing its personal AR headsets in the true world, though there’s no indication it’ll launch a completed product anytime quickly. Even Amazon may doubtlessly soar into the sport.

However it may require quite a lot of work for these firms to take augmented actuality and digital actuality actually mainstream. Lightcast (previously Emsi Burning Glass) estimates that lower than 10,000 jobs requiring AR-related abilities popped up in 2021, though it predicts that AR-related jobs will develop 64.4 p.c over the following two years (though the Revelio/Bloomberg information means that may very well be optimistic, if present developments maintain). In the event you’re excited about working in AR or VR, be sure to take note of hiring at consulting companies along with tech firms.
