Opportunity to build a team from scratch as Head of Studio at "blank slate" startup Skill Nation

Opportunity to build a team from scratch as Head of Studio at "blank slate" startup Skill Nation

Skill Nation, a new Amsterdam-based studio specialising in competitive arcade gaming, is hiring a Head of Studio.

What makes this an unusual opportunity, however, is that the successful candidate will be given the opportunity to effectively build the studio from scratch.

This means recruiting the core team, designing and building the Skill Nation brand, and establishing a culture.

A new beginning

Skill Nation, which is currently operating an early access scheme and adding ten new gamers every week, is a platform for players to compete in skill-based arcade games with real money prizes.

However, the job listing describes skill games as merely "a starting point."

"We see the gaming studio evolve into releasing different productions," it goes on to say.

"We prefer to start with skill games so we can work on a fast release cycle in the first months of the studio. We welcome different ideas and takes on this."

The successful candidate will have at least 2-3 years' experience managing a team, proficiency in English, and be able to work out of Skill Nation's Amsterdam headquarters.

The full listing is available here on PocketGamer.biz.

Features Editor

Matt is really bad at playing games, but hopefully a little better at writing about them. He's Features Editor for PocketGamer.biz, and has also written for lesser publications such as IGN, VICE, and Paste Magazine.
