Hiring by the companies like Nike and Disney, Metaverse is hot off the press

Metaverse is now the talk of the town. There is not a single day where you can skip a piece of news related to the metaverse. Well, many see it as a bridge that takes you to the virtual world but it never fails to surprise us by coming in news and being a hot topic that no one can ignore.

This time, companies are going crazy behind it as the news is that companies want to assimilate metaverse into their business models.

In October, Meta did surprise the world by becoming the biggest company to invest in the metaverse and creating careers. Social media giants come together to hire as they are looking for 10,000 people to be a part of a metaverse in the next 5 years. Last Wednesday, Meta’s website was open for hiring that contains 13 jobs. Most of them were based in the U.S.

But it isn’t stopped there. We cannot say that Meta is the only company using Metaverse and creating careers.

●   Nike hiring for Metaverse:

The fashion industry can be seen as pretty interested in the metaverse. Worldwide known clothing and apparel brands like Gucci, Nike, and Balenciaga are hiring for the metaverse.

Past two weeks, Nike posted five jobs that are related to the metaverse. Job listings on LinkedIn include for a

  • Director of Metaverse Engineering
  • Principal Innovation Engineer for Metaverse
  • Senior 3D Game Designer
  • Experts Manager for the Blockchain
  • Virtual Material Designer

All of these jobs were located at the Beaverton and Ore, where Nike headquarters are located. News by CNBC, Last November Nike has filed seven trademarks that showed their interest in Metaverse as Nike was selling some of its signature products virtually.

Last December, Nike has announced the collaboration with the RTFKT studio. RTFKT created digital sneakers for the metaverse that was later bought by Nike. Nike also invested in the RTFKT brand to work on creative ideas and provide Nike’s digital footprints to ease the customers.

●     Disney going for Metaverse:

After Nike, Disney is also hiring for Metaverse as recently Disney has posted a job post looking for the BD that can lead the NFT space for Disney. According to Business Insider’s report, Disney Enterprises’ patent for a Virtual World Simulator.

●     Metaverse department in Fashion House:

All we were used to thinking was that Metaverse is ruling the technology world. But now, Metaverse is ruling the real world by connecting it with the virtual world.

So far we have known that the high-end luxury fashion brand Balenciaga is looking forward to launching a metaverse department as Cristóbal Balenciaga has announced the news last December.

The same month they were open for one new hiring as the fashion house posted a listing looking for a Meta Business Coordinator. The coordinator will be assisting the business director.

One of the biggest fashion houses around the globe, Gucci was looking for a Web3 Manager based in Milan. The job description specifies that they are looking for a person that can help in sales strategy in this fast-growing area of NFT and digital art.

Well, it’s interesting and surprising at the same time that the fashion industry gets involved in the metaverse and looking forward to working on creative ideas.

But only fashion is interested in Metaverse? The answer is No as NFL is working on metaverse too. In one of their job listing last week, NFL has specified that candidates should have knowledge about emerging technology, NFT, crypto projects, and AR/VR products development.
