compensation: 500 / week
employment type: full-time

Have a blast in July! Be a camp counselor, teach tech skills, and help kids create cool projects.

Camp TechWise.
Locations: Seattle Center, Phinney Center, and Mt Baker Community Club!

You belong here if you have mad skills in either game design or video and want to share this with kids!

"Game design" experience might include working with platforms like Unity or UnReal, game authoring tools (like Scratch, Construct 2, Game Maker, RPG Maker, Stencil, or similar), game modding (like Half-life or other games with SDKs), Minecraft or Roblox mods, straight programming, or even HTML5 or mobile app games.

We also love gamers; game theory buffs, illustrators and animators who are willing to learn some new software!

In addition to Game Design and Video we will be offering short "intro" workshops in the following tech topics:
programming, 3D, Oculus VR, web design, Machinima, app development, Block-chain mining, robotics, karaoke, sports, games ... and/or whatever cool ideas you have that kids would like.

Consideration will be given to applicants who can also assist in these workshops. But listen up creative folks, heavy tech knowledge is not required of all TechWise staff, we work as a TEAM. As long as you know how to use the tools of your art we will back you up with IT support and handle the hard-core geek-out sessions. That's right, it is not just you in a classroom of kids teaching all by yourself. Nope, TechWise is teamwork. We are all together helping kids work on whatever cool projects they want to make.

Summer camp dates: July 15th - Aug 2nd
Training dates TBD (but never on Pride weekend or the 4th of July)
Set-up dates July 13th or 14th.

To apply: respond to this Craigslist post or email
Send your resume and/or a description of relevant experience (professional, educational, and/or hobby).
If you have links to examples of your work (such as videos, games or music) please show us!

College Students: Camp is a great resume builder. You'll gain leadership and teaching experience. It's a chance to do something you LOVE and share it with kids whose bright faces you will never forget. Plus the other staff are a blast and they can teach you other awesome tech stuff. This could be the best summer of your life! But it is only a few weeks of pay. Apply for the right reasons.
