Overview

AmazeVR brings artists closer to fans anywhere at any time through proprietary immersive technologies. Through our full-service solution, fans come face-to-face with their favorite artists in a virtual experience through integrating the artist’s performance in 8K+ stereoscopic live-action videos into surreal environments that transcend reality. Our vertically integrated distribution model maximizes for quality and reach — offline, through global movie theaters with haptic motion chairs and VR LBEs; and online, through the Amaze app across most major VR headsets and other opportunities.
Founded by the co-founder and early executives of Kakao, a $57B market cap mobile platform company, AmazeVR has offices in Los Angeles (HQ) and Seoul. In 2019, we secured $9.5MM for our Series A fundraising from seasoned investors in the tech and media space. And after we built our Unreal Engine-based technical foundation in 2020 collaborating with artist duo Ceraadi and Roc Nation, we secured an additional $9.5MM to build the future of music.
We’re thrilled to be building Amaze Immersive Concerts with an incredibly talented and passionate team, and we can’t wait to launch our large-scale project across the US in 2022. To join us on our mission, we’re searching for a creative, rockstar teammate with experience working on music videos who are excited to build the future of music with us.
