NINJAR Creators Marketplace | NINJAR Blog

NINJAR Creators Marketplace

Our goal with NINJAR is to connect people in the immersive space and to facilitate the creation of great XR by reducing the barrier of entry and democratizing the technology. To this end, we have created a community where people from all walks of the industry can come together and share their insights and experience with each other, but that’s just one part of it.

The next step for us is to establish a Creators Marketplace where brands and businesses looking for help with their XR products can find the exact person or studio they need in a quick and easy way.

The marketplace advantage

The idea was born from real-world problems we have been facing:

  • The need for people with specific skill sets beyond our in-house team to tackle a wide range of work with different requirements and budgets.

  • The risk of hiring new external freelancer/studios that you have no previous experience with.

  • The increasing demand for bite-sized work that requires quick turnarounds with tight overheads.

With the marketplace we aim to tackle each of these with specific solutions:

  • A centralized marketplace that makes it easy to find the exact people you need to fit your skill/budget requirements.

  • Every creator & studio is vetted by us, and we uphold a strict standard to keep the quality high.

  • Design centered around making hiring, project management and payment as easy as possible to make short turnaround projects much simpler to pull off.

What this means for creators

Over the past few months, we have been busy designing and building a platform tailor-made for immersive creators to shine and proudly showcase their work to the world. Whether you’re an individual Freelancer or a Studio with a team behind you, the NINJAR marketplace is a great place to start building your XR presence.

Our commitment to keeping the creator pool small and high quality means that you won’t experience the usual bidding war and race to the bottom so commonly seen in other open market platforms. Through good curation on our part we aim to always have the right jobs for the right people.

On top of that, we will take care of the clients, communications, legal contracts, management, billing and all the other little overheads, freeing you up to do what you do best - materializing the future!

Where we’re at now

Right now we have the creator sign up pretty much ready to go and we aim to have it out in the next few days. Since this is still in beta we would really appreciate any feedback you have and what you want to see from it. After all we’re building this for you, our community, so please help us make it into something that you wish it to be.

Once we have enough sign-ups and profiles ready we will move onto the next phase and go public for clients and agencies to discover and get the first round of projects kicked off for 2019!

For companies looking to get into VR/AR/MR our Virtual Reality services offer guidance on how these technologies can enhance and support your brand strategy.
