We're hiring too!

Postby Fade Dunaway » Tue May 13, 2008 5:33 pm

I just wanna be like St0nk! :D

ArenaNet is looking for Content Designers currently. This position does not require previous experience. The job is not posted yet as we usually try to recruit from within and from people we know first.

Qualifications:

-- Strong passion for gaming in general.

-- Ability to analyze game systems, maps, and content effectively.

-- Incredible communication skills. Ideas and proposals are worthless if you can't share them effectively.

-- Live in, or are willing to relocate to, the Seattle area.

-- Affinity for learning toolsets and systems quickly and effectively.

-- Not being a cockbag :P

Pluses:

-- Interest in Guild Wars and RPGs

-- Experience with mods or toolsets (Warcraft 3 editor, Hammer, UTEdit, etc)

-- Experience with story, character or dialog writing.

If you're interested, send me your resume (ryan@arena.net).

Wow, that job looks like a gooder. I'm still not clear what a content designer does... Is that like a map maker?
God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

Good point :P

Duties:

Create quest and mission content, spawn monsters and entities within the maps, write NPC dialog, refine story flow, design encounters, pace the game.

Basically, you make content! You don't actually lay the levels out or anything, the level designers do that.

I'd be all over that if it weren't for the whole move to the US thing. ;)

Update: We've narrowed it down to a few people now, so I don't think they're taking anymore resumes at this point.
