$30-40 per hour

Strange Scaffold wants to change the way people talk about games--from an emphasis on singular titles, to the expansive view of a creator's perspective across multiple releases in a journey of creativity not unlike following your favorite musician or director. If you've worked in games or game-adjacent fandom spaces, have a passion for capturing relatable and evocative moments from the games you play, and want to advocate for creations enabled by a unique environment filled with dozens of skilled, empathetic collaborators - we'd love for you to apply to Strange Scaffold as a Contract Social Media Content Creator.

As a Social Media Content Creator, you will be creating images, videos and short-form content for our social media channels on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, writing copy and contributing to the growth of the Strange Scaffold brand. You'll get a combination of briefs, and opportunities to generate your own content. You also won't need to be on-camera, but may do the occasional voiceover as needs require.

Like most of our collaborators, we expect that this will be a secondary / supplemental earning opportunity for our applicants, providing additional experience and income on top of their existing support structures. This opportunity is ongoing at roughly 10 hours per week. Additionally, we are open to working with individuals from around the world.

Compensation will be $30-40 per hour to start, with opportunity for increases based on the studio’s needs and successes. This role is entry to mid level and candidates with non-traditional experience are encouraged to apply. You will have guidance from our deeply experienced Infrastructure Producer, support to try new things, and active encouragement to explore weird, funny, nuanced angles of talking about video games and their creative processes.

Strange Scaffold

Strange Scaffold is a multi-development, multi-collaborator studio, and the development label of Xalavier Nelson Jr., who you might know from his work as a leading developer on An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs, Hypnospace Outlaw, SkateBIRD, Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator, or dozens of other critically-acclaimed projects.

Featured Game

Sunshine Shuffle is a narrative poker adventure featuring talking animals with criminal pasts and adorable outfits! Play cards with a group of adorable animal friends who robbed the largest bank on the Eastern Seaboard 12 years ago, and are willing to let you decorate their boat in return for not being executed by the mafia.

El Paso, Elsewhere is a supernatural neo-noir third-person shooter. Hunt werewolves, fallen angels, and other damned creatures in a vivid slow motion love letter to action classics. Fight your way through a reality-shifting motel, floor by bloody floor. Save the victims of Draculae, lord of the vampires. Destroy the villain you loved--even if it means dying yourself.

An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs is an open-world comedy adventure game. Talk to stock photo dogs. Solve their problems. Catch your flight. And call it Dog Airport Game when you get tired of saying the full title, like I did three months ago.
