2017 has been a great year for Zelda so far, and with the release of Breath of the Wild we want to make sure we can keep providing great Zelda content across our platforms. One example of this is our Zelda Maps project which has exploded into a valuable resource for Breath of the Wild players. In order to continue to implement all of our ideas and maintain our website, we need to add a few developers to our team, including a lead developer who will be able to run our dev team.

The lead developer role requires a broad range of skills. Their primary role will be to lead the dev team, which means being responsible for the management and output of the entire team. They will need to create development tickets for tasks to be done during two-week sprints. This requires extensive technical knowledge, preferably across both front- and back-end development. They may also need to help the team solve problems, and even get hands on with some development tasks from time to time.

Requirements for the role are:

  • Good organizational skills
  • Good communication skills.
  • Technical skills: HTML, CSS, JavaScript (LESS/SASS and AJAX experience is a bonus), PHP. Experience with WordPress as well as Burning Board, vBulletin or similar forum software would be a huge plus.

If leading the team doesn’t appeal to you, we’d also love anyone fluent in PHP and/or JavaScript to join the team.

Please note that these are volunteer roles and we cannot pay you for your work. Our entire staff consists of volunteers who keep this place going because of our love of Zelda. We can however provide a place that’s a lot of fun to work at (we’re a team of Zelda fans!), references should you need any for your career or portfolio, and occasional perks such as being able to attend conventions on our behalf.

If you’re interested in either of these roles (lead or regular developer) please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • IM screennames we can use to get in touch with you, preferably Skype
  • The position you’re applying for and why you’d be a good fit (please include examples of any previous work if you have any)
  • Any past experience working on websites (if any)
  • Any other information that you’d like to add

We look forward to receiving your application, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
