Where great games get going :-)
At GameDev.tv we create and maintain 100s of hours of the best game development video tutorials. We have over 500,000 students on Udemy.com, and a great reputation in the industry. We are small team, based in the UK and Australia.
We are looking for creative people who want to help create the future of online education. We are a relaxed team with a lot of flexibility.
Udemy are world-class at marketing our beginner content, and we want to continue to host our courses there. However Udemy makes it hard to let our students know about new content. It is also very hard to afford to create intermediate content as it’s more niche, takes longer to make, and hence requires a higher price point.
We are looking for a talented web marketeer to take the reins on the opportunity to leverage 100s of hours of quality content. We want to capture leads on our own channels, add customers to our own CRM, pass the sales back to Udemy, and have a process helping students to continue their learning journey with us. We also want to try a long-tail marketing strategy for our technical terms, with re-marketing.
We are based in Cambridge UK (for the most part). So it would be helpful if you are in a timezone that allows us to overlap for a few hours a day. Being able to communicate well in English is also important.
Are you a web marketeer with the skills we need? The first step is to fill-out this form, which may lead to an online meeting with our CEO Ben.
Here’s an interesting opportunity to create animated slides for us. Starting with our new Math For Games project (see Kickstarter here), and with the strong possibility of more permanent work after.
We’re looking for an experienced animator who is willing to use their own initiative. You’ll need to write-up and evolve a set of style guidelines. No math experience is required. We’re teaching a beginners course so you can learn along with the students.
You will receive a draft talking head video (against a green screen), LaTeX code for the math, C# code, handwritten notes, and possibly a static Keynote or Google Slide deck.
You’ll need to research some examples of the principle applied to computer games and find some supporting screenshots. The main job will be creating a click-to-transition slide deck, which reveals the concepts in the order Ben introduces them.
This slide deck can be a PDF, Apple Keynote, or Powerpoint. Ben will then give feedback and when it’s ready, use it to record the final talking head in an live environment (using a foot pedal to transition).
By applying for this role you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to improving the way math is taught, work with a fun yet hard-working team and even sign your work with a small logo to build your profile to our 100,000s of students.
