July 7, 2008 Los Angeles â€“ Today, Acclaim Gamesâ€™ CEO, Howard Marks announced that he is seeking to employ new talent from within Acclaimâ€™s player community â€“ specifically from the active players of 2Moons, 9Dragons and the player-designers of the Top Secret Project.
The two positions will involve coordination with developers and technical teams, working to improve Acclaimâ€™s games and respond to the needs of the players.
â€œWe know that we have talented, passionate people in our community. They know our games and they understand what can be done to improve them,â€ says Howard Marks. â€œThatâ€™s why we always look to our players first, and thatâ€™s why we are looking to hire from within the community.â€
To find the right people for the two open positions, Marks has devised a test, as follows:
â€¢ Each applicant is to write two documents of 3 to 5 pages each. One of these documents is for 2Moons and the other is for Acclaimâ€™s new game Ponystars.
â€¢ Each document must explain what the game lacks in content and features that would improve the playersâ€™ experiences, based on the targeted audience for that game.
â€¢ Each applicant should make specific recommendations for how to improve the games (2Moons and Ponystars) to satisfy, retain and increase the player base.
â€¢ The job is located in Los Angeles, California. The winners will be required to locate in that area, no exceptions.
â€¢ Acclaim will cover relocation costs (up to $3,000).
The application period will begin at 10pm on Monday, July 7, 2008 and end at midnight on Sunday, July 20, 2008 .
All applications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 midnight on Sunday, July 20, 2008. All times are Pacific Daylight Time.
Applications will be judged by David Perry, and the winning applicants will be notified and offered a full-time position at Acclaim in their Los Angeles offices.
â€œThis is a great opportunity for our community members to show their skills,â€ says David Perry. â€œI have always believed in the community, which is why I started the Top Secret Project. I have already hired several members of our communities. I see this as a way to continue a practice that has worked out very well.â€
Remember, submit applications to email@example.com by midnight on Sunday, July 20, 2008.
