Currently Epoch Games is developing The Lays of Althas: Sundered Order (LoA:SO). LoA:SO is an in-development indie open-world RPG set in an original fantasy world. The game is being developed using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4 (UE4):

NOTE: The address listed is N/A. We are a fully-online team with no central headquarters at this time. Communication is mostly done via Slack (an instant messaging application) and Trello (an online project collaboration tool).

Job Description

In this volunteer position you will be assisting with team recruitment and introductory interviews for the Epoch Games Development Team. To go into more detail:

  • Reviewing applicants through our open positions on our Job Aggregator websites, and seeking out other such sites to post job ads: SmartRecruiters, AngelList and other Job Aggregator and recruitment websites
  • Assisting with introductory interviews through Skype (no webcam or microphone: all of our interviews, and team communication for that matter, do not require either)
  • Advertising for positions to third-party communities (for the purposes of recruitment). In particular, Reddit and Discord Communities.
  • If able, you may also assist with advertising our game via Social Media (although this is a job more for our Community Manager)

Communication is key to this job title: you must be able to communicate clearly and effectively with other team members as well as the public community for our game. You also should not be afraid to ask any questions should any problems arise. We are an English-speaking team, so English fluency is an absolute must.

If you are comfortable with teaching, you may be called upon to aid the more junior members of the team in any relevant area.

Other duties include: attending Slack meetings (Slack is an instant messaging we communicate with); completing monthly reports; and following team policies.

This is a volunteer position, so no monetary compensation is being offered.

  • Previous experience with job recruitment and interviewing, include using Job Aggregator tools
  • Fluent English Writing and Speaking skills
  • Online communication and Team-collaboration skills

Optional Requirements:

  • Previous experience with SmartRecruiters and AngelList.
