I am officially LFG or in other words, for you non-MMO players, I am looking for a new job. “But Kristen, didn’t you just start a new job?” Why yes! I did!
Long story short? Startups.
Long story long? When I joined this company, I came to work on the social game that was in the works. After two weeks of doing an awesome job, I was also put in charge of the “CEO-pet-project” and “investors-are-going-to-love-this” Facebook chat app, Be3D. I got Be3D shipped, but when I turned to get the social game out the door it was cut. Well, not cut yet, but everyone is trying to get it cut and I have been moved onto the chat app indefinitely by the CEO. In startup terms, they call this a pivot.
Now, even if you are new to this blog it’s not hard to figure out that I love games. Specifically, I love producing and making games. In fact, I love it so much that I have made a decision to dedicate my career to making and producing games. No joke. For reals. Therefore, I need to leave. I still have a job here and am really being successful (and honestly being paid ridiculously sums of cash) but it’s not about that. It’s about doing what you love and what I love is games!
So there you have it. Feel free to message me if you have an interesting opportunity. Best case scenario: I stay in SF and I work on mobile games. However, I’m open to chat with anyone! You never know what special opportunity may come around.
I’ll keep this blog updated on where I land and in the meantime I’m going to throw myself into my personal projects. Oh! And GDC is next week – perfect timing. Hope to see you all there!
