    PSU is hiring across multiple positions

    We're looking for writers, editors, interviews, a database manager, a video manager and Twitch TV streamers.

    Check out the recruitment post and drop us a mail if you're interested. We'd love to have people from the community on board rather than having to look elsewhere.

    Cool

    "We'd love to have people from the community on board rather than having to look elsewhere."

    Brilliant idea

    Can't wait to see what people are doing, and hopefully we can all get involved sharing some excellent content!

    (also, this totally warranted my first post in 4 years)

    People tend to drift in and out of the DB Manager role. Our last guy didn't really do anything. As you know with trophies, the CMS is a minefield! Trying to split up roles so one person isn't taking on too much and it doesn't get too mind-numbing. You're doing a brilliant job with the trophies!

    More clarification of the writing position please.

    Like, what are the three articles? Do they have to be reviews, features other things? A mix of everything? And is there an area on the staff forums where ideas are kicked about, where there are suggestions? In essence, to see if it's something I'd be able to do, I'm interested. So a pm or just a reply here with more specifics would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Hi darky89,

    The three articles per week is a guideline for all writers and editors that can include short news stories, interviews, previews or impressions, opinion pieces, really anything--except actual reviews, since the free games for review are part of the incentive package.

    Yep, there is a private forum that PSU staffers have access to. We actually do all of our writing, and a whole lot of discussing, in that space.

    Question about the database manager role. Are we talking about real database management here? Dropping tables, making schemas, adding constraints and indexes? Because I'd be interested in that as a side job.

    WylieTimes spoils me.

    No, nothing like that. DB management refers to update game, event data and such via a web interface.

    I wouldn't mind being an editor for PSU again. It's been a while. Hiring from the community is how it used to be done. Seems like a good idea. Lots of talented people here. :]

    Sadly not. This is more like data input to be honest.
