Sydney-siders: Use Your Gaming Knowledge For Good


UPDATE: Applications are now closed – see comments for details!

If you’re based in Sydney and want to do some great game-related work whilst being paid, you might like to consider this:

The Lab (http://www.thelab.org.au) is a technology club for young people with Asperger’s Syndrome and High Functioning Autism.  Plans are currently underway for several Labs in the Sydney area, starting with Hornsby but also looking further south around Bondi.

We require mentors/technical assistants with appropriate technical skills to help run after school sessions(a few hours per week) with groups of young people (10-16).

Appropriate skills include programming, design, and knowledge of popular games and software such as minecraft and gamemaker.  This position would suit a computer science student or IT professionals in the IT industry who are looking to give a little back to society whilst getting paid to have fun.

If this sounds like you please send your resume to dale@thelab.org.au.

I can personally vouch for this program as I’ve had some indirect involvement over the years – here’s an in-depth interview on the great work they do.

    Thanks!
