Interesting! Is this limited to US based individuals or are you going world wide?

U.S. applicants will have a slight preference, but we are not excluding international applications. We would need to rework a few things for international applicants since they would be contractors instead of employees.

It is definitely very interesting. Haven't touched programming since my days in Computer Science in the 90's though and it has changed a lot. Working in something I am passionate about... wow. Plus 23 years of customer service..... The brain is making noise.... hmmmmm. Doug you got me thinking this morning... lol!

I am hopeful that we will have a difficult decision ahead of us on who to hire. I imagine that we have a number of people who would be great in that role. For others, they would be great but the role is still a bit too junior for their level of knowledge and experience. If we keep growing, we might be able to add a higher level position in the future.

Thanks for everyone who applied. The response has been overwhelming so far and we now have a very difficult process of narrowing down the selection and setting up interviews and reference checks. I'm disappointed that I can't hire a half-dozen people.

Well gaming company, the logical choice would be using dice. :)

But the most entertaining would involve an arena, foam melee weapons and nets, and some Twitch streaming.

Mortar,

Thanks for your deep sacrifice to keep the world a safer place.

I wish there were more people such as yourself that take pride in honor and tradition, morals and ethics.

I'd have put in for this, except for the LUA bit. Business & technical writing was kind of my thing, before I wound up in the casino business.

Why would you let that stop you? Always focus on what you can do, show that you have the main things they want, and that you are willing to learn and adapt.

We are definitely willing to bring someone in that will learn on the job. I will say, however, that we received a pretty substantial round of resumes and overall, the majority of them were strong either in graphics skills or programming, or had demonstrated experience modding and converting stuff for Fantasy Grounds. We just about have it narrowed down to our top 6 candidates and will start scheduling interviews soon.

There's no reason to hire someone who doesn't already have the relevant skills in the current economy. If you can get someone who has actively been practicing the skills in question, you don't have any use for someone who hasn't done much graphic design or coding for about five years. My editing and publishing credentials are a bit out of date, and they were looking for Lua, not Oracle or VB. The RPG companies I have the closest ties with from writing or doing product testing/demos for are Arc Dream and Pelgrane, who FG doesn't seem to have active business relations with.

Also, I'm currently an end user. You don't want an end user for something like this; the priority is on producing a salable product quickly, not optimizing usability.

Shame I missed this.. I probably would of been a decent fit with my skill set.

That being said, congrats to FG for growing and the ability to expand the company. As well as congrats to whomever gets selected to fill this role.
I see nothing but further success for all involved.

Thanks to everyone who submitted an application or who helped us spread the word. You all made it super tough and gave us basically no chance to make a bad pick. I have just posted the info on who we selected for the position. See the thread here:
