Job description

About us:

Fable Studio is a VR/AR studio that aims to create compelling, intuitive interactive-characters that entertain, relate to and react to audiences. Our creator-driven teams remain nimble enough to take necessary risks and explore, while also using our strong background in film and games to deliver high-quality, emotionally-driven performances. We want our characters to transcend traditional storytelling and seamlessly transition across all platforms. With a diverse unique team that combines art and tech, we have already created the groundwork for an interactive character with “Lucy". Our work on Lucy has received critical acclaim and earned the studio the honor of being an Emmy-finalist for "Outstanding Innovation in Interactive Media”. Lucy can hand you and be handed objects, collaborate as you move through a story, remember what you’ve done and call back to it, be believably interrupted and has a hierarchy of emotional attachment to her objects.

Lucy is Fable Studio’s first step towards a character that is interactive and believable. As we move forward, we believe AI can be an art form, and are excited to incorporate new expertise into an already thriving creative environment.

The role:

As our first Machine Learning Engineer, you will develop novel learning architectures and models in language, animation, and vision to create believable interactive digital characters for AR/VR and mobile. You will work side-by-side with our talented team of storytellers, artists, animators, and software engineers in a fast-paced, agile environment to prototype ideas and transform them into new products.

  • Degree in Computer Science / Mathematics / Machine Learning or related field
  • 5+ years of technical work experience
  • 2+ years of ML
  • NLP system development
  • 3+ years of software development experience (C++ / C# / Java / Python)
  • Knowledge of and experience working with modern ML tools such as Tensorflow, Keras, PyTorch etc.
  • Experience with real-time rendering engines such as Unity or Unreal

Nice to Have's:

  • Worked in a creative environment
  • Passionate about delivering VR prototype products


We provide amazing benefits, but if you ask the team, they’ll tell you that the greatest benefit we offer
employees is an incredibly meaningful transformative work environment.

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance
  • 3 Weeks Vacation

  • 401(k) self-contribution
