    The Movie Battles II team is always on the lookout for talented community members to help out.
    All team members work on a voluntary basis however working on a volunteer project like this will look great on a CV if you are interested in pursuing a career in an associated industry!

    If you are interested in helping please take a look at the roles listed below and create a thread here stating:
    • a little bit about yourself, including your age and where you are from
    • your MBII experience
    • what position you may be interested in applying for
    • any relevant experience
    • what you would be interesting in doing as part of the position
    • what you feel you could contribute to the development of this mod
    As a development team working in a distributed environment communication is very important, as such for all roles we require team members to be able to communicate effectively in English.

    You may be asked to provide a sample of previous relevant work as part of your application, so it would be great if you can prepare something.

    Don't worry if you don't tick all the boxes as a technical ability is less important than having a team-working attitude and a willingness to learn! Even if you are not sure you have all the skills, you can still apply. Your skills and attitude will be evaluated against the current needs and status within the Development Team.


    If you are interested in more than one position please apply with separate applications.
