Current opportunities at Darabase

If you think your skills and experience suit any of these roles then get in touch.

Community Manager

Darabase has recently launched a new project, which realises one of the long-term founding goals of Darabase as a company:

This new system allows property owners to claim two rights over their buildings in the augmented-reality metaverse: firstly, the right to control what categories of advertising appear on that building and, secondly, the right to receive revenue from those who purchase advertising on their property.  The entire system is built upon the Polygon blockchain, and will leverage smart contracts and other features to maximise reliability, consistency and predictability.

Upon proving their ownership of a property, the real-world owner (RWO) is allocated a RWO NFT representing their ‘freehold’ ownership of that property, and 10,000 ‘Property Digital Rights’ (PDR) NFTs that represent ‘leasehold’ shares in that property. If the user retains both the RWO token and all PDRs, they have full control over the building’s advertising. Otherwise, PDRs can be freely transferred, bought and sold, and each PDR token grants its owner one ten-thousandth of the revenue from its corresponding property.

We believe that the project represents an exciting fusion of the proptech, blockchain and metaverse spaces, and has the potential to build a lively community of enthusiasts with a range of interests. We are therefore looking for a talented individual to help us build this community.

In this exciting role, you will carry on the work of a previous part-time community manager in planning and executing the launch and continuing management of the community through platforms including Discord, Reddit and Telegram. In addition, you will contribute to the planning and creation of the content to be published on channels such as YouTube, Twitter and the Darabase blog(s).

You will personally make many of the decisions on how the community should work from the outset, and you will also collaborate closely with our core founding team and content team in creating a cohesive image for the community and the product.

This is a remote position, but you should have fluent written and spoken English, and you would ideally be willing to ensure your work hours significantly overlap the European working day.  A UK based candidate would be preferable in order to be able to come together in person on occasion with the wider team.

Front End Web AR Developer

Darabase is looking for a gifted and creatively minded developer to join our AR development team. The role will primarily require you to use your skills to build high quality exciting AR experiences for our brand and property clients.

We use a number of bespoke and off the shelf AR libraries to deliver the experiences our clients are looking for. We seek particular experience in creating commercial projects using Three.js, A-Frame, ar.js and other open-source 3D Javascript libraries as well as common commercial products. 

The core responsibilities are to design, implement, test, deploy, maintain and optimize Web AR components and projects.

Full Stack AR Developer

Darabase is looking for a talented and experienced full stack developer who is equally at home working with database tables, APIs, infrastructure and front end development. 

Our whole stack is JavaScript based and runs on AWS infrastructure. We have big plans for the development of our backend product portfolio, client facing tools and automation of operational processes. 

If the thought of developing these sorts of products gets you out of bed in the morning and you’d like to be involved in almost everything we do then please get in touch.

Producer – Contract roles Sydney, Australia & Tokyo Japan

Darabase is looking for two dynamic and highly organised, self-motivated Producers with a strong track record for delivering complex digital projects.

You are someone who relishes a challenge with excellent problem-solving abilities. The roles will require you to work within existing project workflows but a flexible, adaptable approach is also key.

Naturally relaxed under pressure you will be at home organising internationally distributed teams. With a polite and enquiring style you will be comfortable proactively managing senior stakeholders.

If you thrive in a fast paced environment and can juggle multiple projects at once then please get in touch.

Senior Business Development Manager – London + New York

Darabase is looking for experienced Senior Business Development Managers in both London and New York. You will be a structured thinker who is driven by and enjoys working within a target driven sales environment. 

While you will have a big black book of existing connections and relationships we will expect you to combine that with structuring a new sales process to generate inbound leads and a fresh outreach strategy.

You will work closely with senior management to produce prospect lists and targeted outbound activity, follow up on leads and close business. 

We will need you to bring or develop a strong background knowledge of the Augmented Reality technology as it pertains to brands and their business goals. We will expect you to be passionate about how this medium can change advertising and marketing for the better. 

If this sounds like you please get in touch.

Junior Designer

Darabase is looking for a Junior Designer to work closely with the Creative Director as part of the AR design team. The role will primarily require you to use your skills to design and amend content primarily for digital formats such as apps, web apps and websites. 

You will work closely with a small team of developers as part of a pipeline that delivers UI, video and other visual assets.

We expect the applicant to be versatile in their role and able to tackle creative tasks sometimes outside of typical 2D digital graphical applications and pipelines. Of particular note, designing for printed media and experience with video editing would be a bonus.

If this sounds like you please get in touch.
