RPTools Management wrote:We have an immediate need for an individual with strong enthusiasm for MapTool (and RPTools in general) who is willing to join the project team as our Director of Public Interfacing (herein referred to as "The Bard"). The job will entail periodic discussions with the developers regarding the future of MapTool and acting as the team's public persona. The former will include input on such things as usability, opinions on graphics layout, ideas for features, and so forth. The latter involves interacting with users to provide a positive first experience for them. This includes, but is not limited to, demo sessions showing off the basic features of MapTool (such as VBL, drawables, and basic token manipulation), gently promoting the use of MapTool on other forums (ENworld, Paizo, DDI, and so forth), and other public relations functions as may be deemed useful by either The Bard or the team as a whole.
The ideal candidate will have used multiple builds of MapTool over the previous year and be familiar with various issues of different builds (such as older builds not having the "Export Map" ability, or how some builds require a checkbox in Preferences to be turned on for the Export Map feature to be enabled). An interest in running and testing pre-release builds of MapTool is implied, of course. We're not looking for expert-level knowledge, but rather an understanding of how MapTool has evolved. The ability to explain the basic functionality without blowing people away with complexity is also a desirable trait.
The salary for this position will reflect our ability to pay (so you'll likely be working for free! ), but guaranteed perks include a custom Rank on the forum ("The Bard"), mention of your name in the MapTool Credits, Name Recognition among your peers, an Inside Track on the direction being taken by MapTool in the future and the ability to Exert Influence in regard to feature priorities, and the Personal Gratification that comes from knowing you've helped promote an application that allows gamers to game! Oh, and a free copy of each release of MapTool!
If you feel you have what it takes to fit our highly motivated (but sometimes stressed for time!) project team, we would like to schedule an interview. We will retain the resumé of all applicants as the chosen Bard may wish to recruit them as Minions, Mooks, or Cannon Fodder as appropriate. Please post a single reply to this thread indicating your interest and one of the team members will contact you using whatever method you prefer (please specify in your post).
Here's hoping we have more applicants than we know what to do with!!
