A little bit about the city: Oxford

A city full of history and architecture and as just about as British as a UK city can get! Oxford is world-renowned for its University, but there is much more to discover here than just its academic history. Deemed one of the UK’s true cycle cities, getting around Oxford by bike is certainly a popular option, encouraging its residents both to get fit and be green!

Some cultural and historic sites in Oxford include The Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford Castle and Blenheim Palace, among many others. This city has an impressive range of theatres, museums, pubs restaurants and festivals, and with a train ride to London taking under an hour, Oxford is certainly a well-connected city, making it a great place to settle in. Alongside the city centre, Oxford offers beautiful countryside, which is great for walking, cycling and generally winding down from city life.

VR and AR Consultant Ryan Templeman

Ryan looks after programmers particularly focusing on the VR/AR space. We think he’s working here mostly get his hands on new Lord of the Rings VR experiences as soon as they come out although, with his level of knowledge, maybe he should be helping make them instead!    He is one of the few people on the team that is a born and bred Brightonian. In fact he has never moved far - to the point where last time he moved, it was only 2 doors down from his old place!
