Hello! 

Metanaut is a small award-winning team of virtual reality enthusiasts who are passionate about building a better future. We’ve been creating VR apps & games for over 5 years now! Our focus is to develop VR experiences that spark a sense of wonder and make a positive impact on the world.

We’re expanding the size of our team to work on a brand new VR experience that will knock your socks off.

What the project is:

A richly interactive VR experience where users explore a growing collection of short episodic experiences. Each of these short experiences takes place in a completely different environment and focuses on a unique, never-before-seen VR concept or interaction mechanic. It will become the ultimate playground for exciting VR ideas not found anywhere else!

Your job will be to plan, create, and manage our very first Patreon campaign as well as produce fresh / fun content (screenshots, videos) for our current social media pages and products (Gadgeteer and the new VR title).

Successful candidates have experience managing an online video game community or have personally participated in Patreons and/or Kickstarters. Preference is given to candidates who have experience with virtual reality and graphic design.

Responsibilities:

  • Create, plan, and execute Patreon campaigns to drive community engagement for our new VR experience
  • Research active community members and keep them engaged
  • Manage community outreach (answer questions, identify issues, elevate items to team for review)
  • Interact with the VR community and generate positive feelings on Patreon, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, etc
  • Monitor VR concept ideas, upcoming VR game launches, and track and report on emerging trends
  • Produce necessary content for campaigns in the form of screenshots, videos, text
  • Generate performance reports for campaigns

Requirements:

  • Must have Canadian citizenship or PR
  • Experience engaging users on social media websites (either personally or professionally)
  • Experience creating graphics
