The job market seems as hot as ever. As a result, I've had a few interesting free-to-play related jobs flitter through my inbox this week.
David Perry, Chief Creative Officer of Acclaim (in that company's new, F2P-only format) and Kyra Reppen, SVP of Nickelodeon, send word of very compelling vacancies in their respective companies. Nickelodeon's posting is based in LA whereas Acclaim seems open to remote-work scenarios. Kudos to Acclaim!
I promised I'd post their opps on freetoplay.biz. Click through for the full text of each posting.
Been very busy on the consulting front lately... apologies for the lack of content. But I promised Nicolo I would post this job for him, so here goes:
At this year's GDC, I met Michael Ivvora and Nicolo Laurent from GOA, the videogame subsidiary of France Telecom/Orange. Besides handling the European side of US online games – launch, localization, QA, support etc – for games like Warhammer Online and Dark Age of Camelot, Orange also runs a free to play portal at goa.com. They've recently launched localized free to play games in Europe like Gunbound and Pangya, and they've got plans to expand their game selection.
Right now they're looking for an Operational Manager for their free to play business, which is based out of Dublin, Ireland. This is a lead managerial position, which means leading the vision for their free to play business, managing project managers and organizing work flow between game teams. It also means working closely with the marketing team to develop strategies for customer acquisition, conversion, retention and monetization, along with managing the alignment of development and marketing goals.
If this sounds like your dream job, send an email to email@example.com.
