Bloom Digital Media
This is your chance to work with a truly incredible team of people! We played and reviewed their excellent app game, LongStory, which is what you’ll be working on for this particular project. Bloom Digital Media is currently looking to hire a freelance 2D illustrator and concept artist to work on several episodes in season two.
“You will be responsible for creating characters and assets for the game that are in keeping with the mood and style that has already been established. This position reports to the game producer. You will need to work closely with the production team: producer, developers, designers, and story writers.”
For further information, see the link below. You have until March 31, 2016 to get your application in!
One of the foremost organizations working tirelessly to provide opportunities for women in tabletop games, ConTessa is currently seeking participants to submit event ideas for Gen Con 2016! If you have an idea for a panel, workshop, LARP, or other event related to empowering women, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
“We can offer you help finding panelists, we’ll promote it on our website, add it to our brochure and schedule, give you some swag to give away, and to the best of our ability we’ll have our pit crew show up with ConTessa signs and moral support!”
They’re also looking for any and all interested GMs who might want to lead a game. You can read more about all the awesome things ConTessa has in mind by following the link below!
Known for Fallen London and Sunless Sea, the team over at Failbetter Games is looking to hire freelance editors for quite a few projects. If you’re familiar with their games (you should be!), this would be a great opportunity for you to work closely with a truly talented group of developers.
“The work to be edited will generally be short (think short story rather than novel), and will require a swift turnaround. We envisage pieces taking a day or two to edit. We make a habit of reusing freelancers wherever possible, as everyone benefits from increased familiarity with our style and lore.”
For their writers’ guidelines, see this page. Any further information regarding this opportunity can be found at the link below.
Girl Develop It
There are two open positions here, which is super exciting for anyone interested in joining such an awesome team! Girl Develop It proudly provides affordable and “judgment-free” opportunities for women who want to learn coding. They’re looking to hire both an Operations Lead and a Program Manager.
“Girl Develop It is seeking a highly organized, experienced Operations Lead to design and execute strategy for the organization’s central operations, supporting 50+ chapters across the U.S.”
“Girl Develop It is seeking an enthusiastic, experienced Program Manager to lead all aspects of managing and expanding the growing chapter program.”
Both of these positions are paid and located either in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or remotely, if you don’t live nearby.
We’re so excited about this one! IndieCade, one of our favorite events, is currently looking to hire a Community Manager to join their team. You’ll be working with some of the most talented folks in the industry who are creating so many opportunities for positivity and innovation in games.
“IndieCade, the International Festival of Independent Games, is looking for a Community Manager. This is a year-round, part-time position (with opportunity for growth) as an integral member of IndieCade’s dedicated core staff.”
Remote applications will also be considered! If you don’t live near the Culver City, California area, that won’t rule you out. You have until March 13, 2016 to get all your information in, however, so keep an eye on that calendar!
