Update: June 25th - Please note that I’ve recieved more than enough applicants for this, so I’ll be closing this for now :)
Running CanadianGameDevs.com is a lot of work - a lot of work. Most weeks I probably spend 15-20 hours working on various things and on the extreme end that has gotten as high as 50. It’s a passion project, and I love doing it and the connections and relationships I’ve made have been incredible - but eventually enough is enough and one can only get so far on their own.
This decision also comes off the heels of my Dad passing last year and taking some time off this year, as well as my wife being pregnant with our first daughter, due in October. I’ve realized that in order for CanadianGameDevs to become the best it can be I’ll need some help. In wanting to get the right person and treat them right it’s going to be a paid position - I’m not just looking for someone to work for me, but someone to work with me.
So! If you’re interested, I’m looking to work with someone who:
Loves video games - PC, consoles, handhelds, mobile, all or some - with a specific love for Canadian-made games.
They have a passion to highlight games and the people who make them, they care about who makes them not just that they are made.
Likes to do some writing, work on videos, editing, podcasting - whatever else might come up
Writing posts about Canadian-made games (including announcements, releases, updates)
Updating things such as Gamedev Events, the Game Studios lists, and Freelancers pages
Join us on our Podcast, and potentially Twitch Streaming, maybe something with Youtube?
Help with promotion (social media, SEO, etc), and Sales (job postings, Patreons)
Basically, a partner. Above is pretty much what I do on a week-to-week so I’d ideally want someone to split responsibilities with. Based on this revenue would be split - but the details on payment can be hammered home during interviews.
If you’re interested, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org with a short blurb about yourself and why you’d make a good fit (feel free to include your social media incase we’ve spoken before).
