We are looking for a new team member to split their time between administrative duties, quality assurance (QA), external partner management, and a variety of "general" tasks around the studio. Some examples of these tasks are given in the job description below, and while they touch many different fields of work, they do not require experience in each of these fields. If you're someone who is organized, thorough, passionate about the games industry and eager to learn about the business—from playtesting the latest build to processing payroll to managing merchandise—this job is for you. This can act as an entry-level position in the games industry where you'll have a lot of different things to learn and handle, but you'll "graduate" from this position with knowledge about games-related business as well as skills in a variety of different fields related to the industry.
📢 Important dates: This job posting will be open from May 17th to June 4th, and we're looking for someone to start as soon as possible!
We welcome applicants from a variety of backgrounds and levels of experience, and are ready to dedicate the necessary amount of time to onboarding as needed. We recognize that members of marginalized communities often face challenges when it comes to gaining experience in the gaming industry, and we want to make our hiring process as equitable as possible. Even if you haven’t worked professionally in the games industry, we encourage you to read the job description and decide for yourself if your skills and personal experience would make you a good candidate for this role.
🦠 COVID-19 info: The position will be full-time, and work will be from our office in downtown Montréal once the COVID pandemic calms down and we can return to work safely. Work will start remote, of course, and we are willing to be accommodating in terms of the start date in order to find the best candidate. A workstation will be provided, and can be used from home upon the candidate’s request until we move back to the office, at which point the workstation will be brought back.

About Ultimate Chicken Horse
Ultimate Chicken Horse is a party platformer where you build the level as you play, taking turns placing traps and hazards and trying to screw your friends out of a win. Each turn, place more items in the level before running through, and try to create a level that's just barely too hard for your friends, but easy enough for you. If everyone reaches the end of the level, no one gets any points, so be dangerous!
