Position Code: TOKIT02

Organisation Description:

After helping large companies and government agencies meet their accessibility goals for over a decade, the founder started this consulting company that can help any organisation get its technology to work for people with disabilities efficiently. This consultancy is passionate about “contributing to a more accessible world”, and believes that all information technology should be available to anyone that needs to use it.

Since 2012, the team has grown into a global company, with team members joining us from throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. While they are fluent in the most current international accessibility standards, their primary focus is on how people with disabilities actually use technology. They help their clients develop their products accordingly, and we believe this has been the main driver of their success.

Internship Description:

You will work for a hosting company located in Tokyo – Japan, on a paid internship to develop interactive Unity/Unreal prototypes in Virtual Reality that illustrate best practices for design and development to improve access for people with disabilities.

In this position, you will actively collaborate and create code to implement novel ideas for spatial experiences in Unity or Unreal.
