Full-Time Games Designer Vacancy

By on 15 December 2009

Mongoose Publishing is expanding yet again and we are in need of another full-time games writer.

We are currently looking for a full-time Games Designer/Staff Writer to work on our RPG products and licensed lines, including Traveller, Paranoia and RuneQuest. Such a person will conceive and write roleplaying games and supplements across a wide variety of genres, working as part of a team within one of the largest RPG companies in the world. Projects will initially be set but there is plenty of opportunity for flexing creativity and creating entirely new lines. The successful candidate will be working from home with a full month’s paid holiday every year.

The ideal candidate will meet the following requirements:

  • Able to work fast in order to meet deadlines, while maintaining absolute accuracy.
  • Already published, preferably in the roleplaying market
  • Knowledge of Mongoose Publishing’s existing lines, both rules and background, is absolutely necessary.
  • A passion for games and gaming.
  • Computer literate (Windows-based).
  • Excellent skills in written English, time management and planning.

For some people, this could seem like the ideal job – and indeed it may well be. However, candidates are cautioned that the position requires a great deal of hard work, dedication and commitment, as you will be responsible for a large part of Mongoose Publishing’s production schedule.

If, however, you believe you are just the person for this position, please drop me a line at msprange@mongoosepublishing.com, including a CV/resume, covering letter and reasonable expectation of salary.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
