Iron Realms Hiring Paid Lead Builder for Starmourn (position filled)

Iron Realms is hiring an assistant producer (paid position) to lead building for Starmourn, our upcoming sci-fi MUD. In this position, you'd report to Starmourn's producer, and would be responsible for working with him and the Creative Director to build out the world of Starmourn. You'd also be managing other builders, though the majority of your time would be spent fingers to keyboard, doing the actual work of building.

It's a heavy part-time position, so think ~30 hours/week, with the possibility of moving up to full-time. You'd be working remotely from your home, with most meetings taking place in-game, in Slack or, very occasionally, Skype. As a result, we don't care where you live.

Job requirements:
* An excellent command of the English language.

* At least a year of experience building in MUDs - IRE's or otherwise.

* Ability to script. You'll be using our scripting language to create quests and NPC behavior. You don't need to already know it - if you're a competent scripter in any environment, you'll pick it up without a problem. It's simple enough for people who have never scripted to learn, but powerful enough to, with some work, do quite a lot with.

* Be a people person. You'll be leading other builders and have to be someone other people want to work with.

* Be reliable. When you say you'll do something, do it. This is one of the most important parts of this position.

Send over a CV/resume that includes your MUD building history, even if unpaid (which would be 99% of builders, and that's fine) to starmourn@ironrealms.com with the word 'Building Lead' in the subject line. Feel free to include a cover letter describing why you think you're perfect for this, but it's not required.

Applications for this position are now closed I'm afraid. We received nearly 50!

Armageddon Lead Builder joins Starmourn

We're excited to be able to announce that we've hired Laura Martz, Armageddon's lead builder, for the position!

This is only the third time in the 20 year history of Iron Realms that we've hired someone who wasn't a player of our games, and the fact that they've been able to cultivate such great staff is a testament to the quality of Armageddon and to its producers.

Really looking forward to turning Laura loose on Starmourn!

I'm clearly not a huge poster on these forums (nor did I apply for this job), but I want to say that Laura is a fabulous person and a very good choice. Congratulations on your new addition!

Thanks! We're pretty psyched to have her on board.

Now that we're coming up on 6 months having worked with her, let me just say, she is indeed a fabulous person and was a great choice! She's a pretty incredible builder too, whipping literally hundreds of rooms some weeks.
