    Job: Terragen Educator and Content Developer

     

    Job Description

    We are looking for a Terragen artist or experienced 3D generalist with excellent communication skills and a passion for sharing knowledge. As part of our team you will learn new skills to push your Terragen craft further than ever before, and you will be responsible for transforming your knowledge in various ways to provide learning materials and to mentor our growing user community. Some of the ways you will do that include:

    • Writing tutorials
    • Creating video tutorials
    • Performing live demos and Q&A sessions (online and sometimes in person)
    • Writing and maintaining documentation tailored for beginners and more experienced users
    • Creating scenes, terrains, atmospheres and other assets for Terragen users
    • Blogging and engaging with the Terragen community on the forums and social media when appropriate
    • Working with alpha and beta software and providing feedback to developers

    Responsibilities may be adjusted depending on your specific strengths, but the ideal candidate will be strong in all of the above areas.

    We prefer someone who is able to work in our office in Marina del Rey, California, but we will consider other qualified candidates.

    Ideally this will be a long term position, but we will consider short term or part time positions.

    Professional VFX artists: We understand the unpredictable nature of this business. If you have other projects from time to time we respect the need to keep your skills alive and relevant in the field. We will actively encourage and support you to take Terragen-related jobs in the local area.
