Join Our Team!

Better Than Unicorns is an immersive production company who is committed to expand human awareness by designing and delivering fantastic virtual reality experiences.

Recently we expanded our offerings to the mass public by opening our studio doors as a virtual arena for gametime, exercise, education, therapy, and much more. This VR Arena will be a new venture spun off by Better Than Unicorns to give the masses a first hand experience of the potential inside this new medium. The VR Arena is open to the public for them to experience virtual reality while the rest of the Better Than Unicorns production team will continue to work in the studio to create new and fantastic virtual reality experiences.

Core Values

Integrity-All promises are big promises.
Authenticity-We always reach for the genuine experience, action, or choice.
People first, then projects-We understand that our relationships with people and communities are paramount to any project that we ever produce.
Positive disruption in human evolution-We challenge all assumptions, from the way we build the business to the way we produce our work. Just because it was always done that way most likely means we will reinvent a new way!
Unwavering pursuit for excellence-We address the small details because, to us, they are big details.
