Linden Lab seems to be on a hiring spree! The position of online community manager for Sansar has already been taken down from the Careers section of the Linden Lab website, but there’s a brand new job posting for a Marketing Content Specialist:

Linden Lab, a pioneer in the creation of virtual worlds, is looking for a Marketing Content Specialist who can help showcase the beauty and diversity of Second Life to both new and existing audiences. This junior-level position is responsible for creating outstanding short promotional videos, images, and other assets as needed, to be shared in advertising, social media, email marketing, and other outlets.

The ideal candidate for this position is already familiar with creating great photo and video content using Second Life. This job requires a solid understanding of “inworld” photoshoots and machinima including knowledge of high-quality and on-trend avatar creation, lighting, poses, and environments. You’ll also help us curate the Destination Guide, our directory of cool and highlight-worthy places and events in Second Life. If you think you’ve got what it takes, then we want to see your portfolio!

And the best part is, you can apply for this job even if you want to work remotely! (The job posting also mentions Linden Lab offices in the cities of San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Charlottesville, and Atlanta.)

This could be somebody’s dream job. God knows that there are dozens—even thousands—of talented photographers and machinima creators in Second Life. People who already have the skillset that Linden Lab is looking for.

So, if you think you have what it takes, get your application in! Who knows? You could land up working for Linden Lab!

Linden Lab Is Looking for an Online Community Manager for Sansar

Have you filled out our reader poll yet? The deadline is midnight Feb. 28th. The question is: Which social VR platform or virtual world do you spend the most time in?


Well, it would appear that Linden Lab has finally posted the position of Community Manager for Sansar:

If uncharted territory excites you and you are ready to take on growing a global audience for Sansar, the world’s leading social VR platform, we are looking for you to help us build the future.

“Uncharted territory”, indeed! Being the community manager for such a fractious, demanding and restive bunch as us is not a job for the faint of heart.

If you meet the qualifications (ideally, Linden Lab is looking for someone with a B.A. in Marketing or Communications) and you’re interested in working in the San Francisco area, why not apply? I figure, it’s so expensive to live in the area, so the salary must be competitive, right?
