About Pluto

Pluto’s mission is to help humanity transcend physical location. 

To achieve our mission, we're building PlutoSphere; a cloud-streaming service for VR games and applications. We have thousands of monthly active users on the service playing high-end PC VR games on their mobile headsets. We are in an extraordinary position and are looking for people to join our team who are passionate about advancing the future of XR.

Team Culture and Values

Our engineering team values a culture of collaboration and continuous improvement. We believe in frequent information sharing - especially through pair programming - to ensure that all team members are aligned and able to learn from one another. 

We also prioritize unit testing and code documentation as essential components of a robust software development process. We place a strong emphasis on testing and quality assurance practices, and we use Git and Pull Requests to manage and track code changes. We also implement continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) practices to ensure that our code is deployable at any time.

We follow Agile/Scrum methodologies and believe in continuously questioning and improving our processes and practices to ensure that we are delivering the best possible software to our users.

As a remote-first team, we are committed to remote work and use a VR chat client for our daily scrum meetings. We also have an office and VR lab in Seattle, which team members are welcome to use if they are in the area. We value team members who are passionate about staying current with future technologies and are excited to work collaboratively with their peers.
