I really don’t know if ‘awesome’ ever gets any more-gooder than this: National Geographic is casting for a new show, and… lets just say it sounds better than that time Josh chopped down a Ponderosa just to get to the ‘marshmallows’ inside. We’re not gonna lie: we plan to throw our names in this hat, and YOU SHOULD TOO.

From the NatGeo interweb page:


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.
