I'm working on a new TV series for National Geographic, and I'd be really excited to have someone from the DIY drone community to be apart of the show!
Do you see yourself as a combination of MacGyver and Q from Bond? Wouldn't it be cool to build DIY drones for amazing expeditions? Then this is for you!
(I guess this also counts as a DIY Rave? :)
We are casting for an ENGINEER / TECH WIZ:
National Geographic seeking to hire a tech wiz to develop, customize, deploy and modify equipment for field scientists exploring new frontiers. Will work hand-in-hand with National Geographic's Remote Imaging Lab. Must be a visionary who can offer practical solutions to a wide variety of technical problems. We're looking for National Geographic's version of James Bond's "Q"- an imagineer who will not just be a lab-based visionary, but also a field engineer, called on to create and operate equipment on site across multiple expeditions. Outdoor skills required as the sites will be in remote areas of the globe, often in rugged terrain. Must have the ability to handle rapidly changing situations, be passionate about technology and adventure AND be as comfortable on camera as in the field. Full-time employment with a minimum one-year contract. Be prepared to see your dreams become a reality and have the experience of a lifetime.
If interested, please email us at NGTeamLeader@gmail.com and let us know about why you’re perfect for the job. Make sure to include your name, contact information and a photo and/or video links. (Submissions without photos or video WILL NOT be considered.) US Passport and enthusiasm required.
OR if you have any contacts or think someone you know might be interested, please get in touch with me and pass this along. It's a great opportunity to show off your ingenious, hard work and have fun!
that has hai tran all over it
Arg, I can't promise any of that! I'm in casting :)
But you will be working with NatGeo's Remote Imaging Labs, where they have some of the neatest, high tech equipment to help build whatever solution you think of for the expedition team!
