Earlier this week, id Software co-founder John Carmack announced that he had accepted a position as chief technology officer at the company. The move will see him juggle his time between the id and Oculus studios.

Now former Rage creative director Matt Hooper has updated his LinkedIn profile (as reported by Game Front), revealing that he is the director of development at Oculus VR. Hooper left id in February this year.

"We are thrilled to have Matt Hooper join the Oculus VR team as our director of Development," a statement from the company said. "Hooper will be working out of the Dallas, TX, office. He's a top talent who had been out of id for a few months, and ended up being a great fit for the Oculus team. We're looking for more all-stars!"
