Open Call for Applications on the Unity Team for October, 2017

4 mins

Since we set up the Unity team, we’ve made over 35 free Unity tutorials for everyone to enjoy and learn from.

We’ve also released our first book – Unity Games by Tutorials – that teaches you how to create 4 complete Unity games from scratch!

We want to offer our readers more awesome Unity tutorials, so we’re currently recruiting new Unity developers to join the tutorial team.

Specifically, we’re looking for the following:

  • 3 writers: Writers focus on writing new high quality tutorials, and updating existing tutorials. If you love learning new things and teaching people about them, this is perfect for you. Time commitment: Write 1 tutorial every 3 months.
  • 4 tech editors: As a tech editor you make sure that everything that gets released is of superior quality and you help the writers grow through your improvements and comments. Time commitment: Tech edit 1 tutorial every month.

Here are some skillsets that would greatly complement the team (not required but helpful):

  • Shaders
  • Networking
  • 3D modelling
  • XR development

Joining our team is a great way to learn and improve – not to mention, getting paid for it!

If this sounds interesting, keep reading to find out what’s involved and how to apply.
