The Metaverse Is Hiring, With 750+ Jobs Currently Available

The metaverse is currently experiencing solid growth and is searching for fresh talent to power its forward momentum. 

MetaNews compiled a list of some of the top metaverse companies currently hiring and we’re taking a look at some bright signs for the future of the industry. If you’re looking for metaverse jobs, let us help you kickstart your search.

The metaverse is doing well

The metaverse is doing well with strong and steady growth. Despite this, the sector continues to take a pounding from media outlets who don’t yet quite understand it. By now, MetaNews readers should know to take those reports with a pinch of salt.

Recent staff cuts at Microsoft and Meta point to deeper problems at those companies, not problems with the metaverse itself.  Outside of these limited examples, the wider picture is one of growth. 

In the first quarter of 2023 metaverse platforms grew year-on-year by 15 million users. According to data gathered by research firm Metaversed the sector now has 520 million monthly active users (MAU) – and that is almost exclusively in the US and Europe.

The above figure does not include all the projects based in Asia or South America, such as the mobile-based game Garena Free Fire, which has 700 million monthly users on its own. 

On the topic of mobile access, Metaversed research further shows that at least for now, most of the platforms working on the metaverse offer browser-based experiences. This is counter to the common narrative that the metaverse can only be accessed through expensive VR headsets.

In short, the popularity and strength of the metaverse is currently underestimated by mainstream media, and it remains fundamentally misunderstood as well. All said, the picture for the metaverse is far rosier than most people have been led to believe.
