Careers

We are seeking an Augmented Reality Designer to join our talented, hardworking, fun and creative team.

Clients rely on Bare Tree Media to create compelling, well-designed and cutting-edge Snapchat AR Lenses, Instagram AR Filters and TikTok Branded AR Effects.

As an AR Designer, you will be involved in every aspect of the content development process, from conceptualizing new experiences to designing incremental features and capabilities. You come to us with current experience and in-depth knowledge of Lens Studio (Snapchat) and Spark AR Studio (Instagram/Facebook). We don’t expect you to have experience with the TikTok Effect Creator tool – yet. As one of only ten studios worldwide who has been granted access to TikTok’s Effect Creator, we will provide you the ideal environment to apply your AR expertise on the rapidly-emerging Tiktok platform.

This exciting opportunity is being offered as a full-time employment position, although we may consider candidates interested in contractor positions as well. We highly recommend Lens Creators and Spark AR Creators apply for this exciting opportunity given your experience and portfolio. This role is currently a remote position given the COVID-19 precautions we as a company are practicing. Qualified candidates must reside and be authorized to work in the United States.
