Location: San Francisco (3 month contract)
Hats: Assistant Producer, Junior Narrative Designer, Technical Scripter, QA Manager, Social Media Manager, Intern+
We’re building a platform for interactive storytelling. It’s time we changed the way stories are created and published. We think individual creators should be able to pilot ideas, iterate off feedback/metrics, control how they monetize, and add visuals/interactivity to bring stories to life on mobile devices.
While most studios are working on a couple games, we’re producing over 75 with an internal team of 5. We’re literally bursting with work and need help! We can’t promise it’s always going to be creatively challenging work (in fact much of it is entry-level, mundane stuff that we have not automated just yet). But if you blow us away, we can consider you for an in-house junior narrative designer position.
On a day to day basis you’ll be supporting the CEO and Lead Narrative Designer with a variety of tasks that may include:
- Production: Updating our dashboards with the latest progress on each project. Onboarding new writers and series onto our platform.
- Narrative: Playing stories in beta to find grammatical/flow errors as well as suggesting ways to improve their plots, characters, gameplay, or visuals.
- Scripting: Solving technical scripting issues in our stories that the machines haven’t figured out how to catch yet.
- QA: Logging issues experienced by both players and writers on our platform. Filing effective tickets that accurate replicate problems so our developers can solve problems efficiently.
- Research: Doing deep dives into media companies, competitor products, writer hangouts, etc to surface useful information to the rest of the team.
- Marketing: Posting on our social media accounts or crafting emails for the launches of new series.
Signs you might be the one:
- You have flawless, native English ability. Are you that annoying person who corrects their friends when they use literally or ironically the wrong way?
- You have the ability to just figure things out even if it’s not in your wheelhouse. There is no obstacle, just learning opportunities.
- You enjoy putting your friends to shame by finding answers to their questions on Google. Seriously though, you’re creepily good at Google.
- You understand simple logical equations and even a few spreadsheet shortcuts.
