Blender Jobs List

24

logo_sm.gifThe website 'PageBites' is an aggregator for other jobs sites. I ran across it a few months ago and added a feed for 'blender 3d' jobs to my RSS reader. Much to my surprise, there's actually quite a steady demand for Blender jobs!

There are all kinds of jobs and there's the occasional mismatch, but I think it's an interesting feed to keep if you are looking into getting into 3D work with Blender. Here are some examples of the last few weeks:

There's not a lot, but it's a start and I think it's interesting to see these jobs appear. Do you know of any other jobs sites that ask for Blender skills? Let us know!

About the Author

Bart Veldhuizen

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

  1. Just another internet mirage! The link just leads to an advert site. Anyway at 10 dollars an hour it is barely above the minimum wage (here in Ireland). I think 3D work should command a higher rate than a charlady!

  2. @Trevor: it's not 'just' an advert site; like I wrote, pagebites aggregate job lists and make them searchable. And yes, they display ads, just like we do. *shrug*

  3. > Anyway at 10 dollars an hour it is barely above the minimum wage (here in Ireland)

    You think that's bad, I'm still getting paid in Guinness and potatoes! :P

  4. $10 an hour is generally a good wage if you are a student or something. Its really a joke if you have enough skill to realistically create humans and animals. Call-center personell get $10 an hour here (Florida). Paying $10 for a skilled artist is an insult.

  5. Yeah, $10 an hr is crazy, for skilled work too.

    I expect if well paying jobs become available the skilled ppl will get snapped up.,. - if this becomes a recource frequented by blenderheads

  6. hmm. US minimum wage is only like 5.50/hr $10/hr would be the average job like secretary, maintenace person, construction worker etc. Enough to live on, but no to support a family. But that's how you start. If you work, it's inevitable that you'll become valuable, and get a raise or a better job offer. Go Blenderheads.

  7. Here in Argentina one dollar is three pesos, and average monthly salary is below the 1500 pesos mark.
    (that's less than 10 pesos/hr).
    What they're offering is 3 times more... It's not bad at all.
    I'm a professional designer and can't charge more than 15 dollars/hr.

    So, maybe 10 dollars per hour is very low for a 3D pro in Europe or USA, but I gess is not so bad for the rest of the world.

  8. I just finished looking at http://www.theanimationempire.com. What a joke!

    "The Animation Empire will provide quality, value, and flexibility."

    Their sucky Geocities site will give people a different opinion. And how many real companies want a 3D mascot on their website? I'm amazed anybody would hire them to create a website. I'd rather not taint my reputation by willingly working for such a low-quality studio, esp. at 10 bucks an hour!

  9. I am from India
    Recently i got a job through Blender...YOOO
    My passion is in Graphics field(designing and programming)
    And i got that i Need. Really

  10. Roofoo,

    What makes the website sucky? Because it is on Geocities?

    How many real companies would want a 3D mascot on their website? Several, so far.

    Many have hired us. Why not?

    Why are we a low quality studio? May we see your work so that we can compare?

    $10 an hour is a rounded number we use to find people who are hard workers and aren't scraping every dollar they can find off of their clients. We actually pay more than that and provide bonuses. Also, we provide low bids to our clients, which is another reason that we don't pay much. We don't get much to pay with.

    Any questions? Or just more statements?
