Although it's not listed in the application, I need brains for a project or script. I used to accumulate scraps of the latest technology and news by reading newspapers, scientific journals, and papers in the style of Michael Crichton on a daily basis. pic.twitter.com/JtkipjvoYQ
In his tweet, Kojima also lists 30 other positions that his Japan-based gaming development studio is looking to fill.
Available positions range from programmer, artist, game designer, and sound designer, to writer, project manager, producer, localiser, and more.
The job requirements seem very generous, it’s even open to new graduates or inexperienced in the industry.
But you’ll have to move to Tokyo and speak Japanese for the job.
