The Organization

We have replaced the conventional management hierarchy and organized ourselves using Holacracy.

Holacracy is a method of decentralized management and organizational governance, in which authority and decision-making are distributed throughout a holarchy of self-organizing teams rather than being vested in a management hierarchy. No more top-down management.

We believe in finding talented people and organizations that empower them.

Your responsibilities

  • Collaborating with the content team to create the “simulation flow” for new Earth Sciences simulations. Use your imagination to design virtual experiences for high-school and university students, while ensuring that storyline, theory and quiz questions all come together (it's almost like writing a movie script).
  • Collaborating closely with the rest of the development team to build and improve simulations. This is a group effort, where you will in particular bring your scientific knowledge and writing skills to the table. Be ready to test simulations and iterate through them to meet scientific accuracy and high quality standards, while making sure that the students have fun.
  • Working closely with our 3D art team on how the simulations and their content should look, and design 3D animations that will help students understand science at the molecular level.
  • Assessing potential scientific issues in simulations.

 Requirements

  • Strong passion for science and education. 
  • You have a strong background in Earth Sciences, minimum a bachelor’s degree in Geology, Earth Sciences or Environmental Sciences or any other bachelor with sufficient courses covering volcanoes, Earth structure, tectonics, etc.).
  • You possess excellent written and spoken English skills, close to native- level. 
  • We don’t expect you to have coding experience, but it’s an advantage to have a  tech-savvy mindset that will allow you to quickly learn all the tools and processes we are using in the development process. 
  • You are effective while working in a remote and distributed environment. 
  • Experience within science communication or science education is a plus.
  • You are truly interested in technology and multimedia. 

What do we offer?

  • Work fully remotely with somewhat flexible hours as long as the goals are achieved
