Blue Goji is seeking a mid-to-senior level marketing professional who is passionate about gaming, virtual reality (VR) and fitness to join our team. The Blue Goji mission is to make getting healthy more fun and rewarding. Launched in December of 2013, our flagship product, Goji Play®, is our core, patent-pending game platform, that is played while exercising on cardio equipment.
VR is one of the hottest technologies today, one that is not just a fad but is being adopted for many purposes. Blue Goji has recently been enhancing the Goji Play platform with VR capabilities, and developing new VR games for leading VR platforms such as the Samsung Gear, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive to deliver a unique, immersive “Active VR” experience. By doing so, Goji Play will transform cardio machines, like ellipticals and stationary bikes, into an immersive ‘Game Station’ for playing VR games. More importantly, by infusing full-body cardio motion into VR game plays, Goji Play has demonstrated very promising results eliminating or significantly reducing the common problem of VR-induced motion sickness. We are very excited about Goji Play’s new capability to expand the VR game play beyond the sedentary or limited-movement model, as well as the possibility of resurrecting millions of underutilized or unused cardio equipment at home. These Active VR enhancements and several new VR games will be released in the next Goji Play system upgrade, scheduled for fall 2016.
We are looking for a passionate, motivated and experienced mid-to-senior level marketing professional to join our team and help us launch our new Active Gaming / Active VR platform this fall. You will be joining a small startup as the primary marketing professional driving our marketing efforts in this extremely leading edge space.
