New staff positions available: night shift news editor, Japanese to English translators
Posted on July 20, 2019 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Site updates
It’s that time again: we have some staff openings available, and are looking to add some fresh faces to the team. Right now there are two positions in particular we’re looking to fill. Along with a new night shift news editor to help Devin out, we’re hoping to expand our lineup of Japanese translators.
For the news position, you will be responsible for covering the site twice per week (those days would be decided once you’ve been brought on board) at the following times:
– 9 PM PT – 12 / 1 AM PT
– 12 AM ET – 3 / 4 AM ET
– 5 AM in the UK – 8 / 9 AM in the UK
– 6 AM in Europe – 9 / 10 AM in Europe
If this sounds appealing to you, send us a message here and choose “Site Position” as the subject. Please tell us your name, age, region / country, and position you’re applying for. We’ll follow up with each person individually with more information on how the process will proceed.
Regarding the translator position, many of you know that we’ve taken a serious interest in translating Nintendo-related Japanese interviews, news, and other material into English over the past couple of years in particular. With more and more content coming in these days, having additional people on the team would be a huge help for us. We’re very flexible in terms of who takes on what assignment and how many translations are done by each person.
Interested in joining our translators team? If so, send us a message here and choose “Site Position” as the subject. Please tell us your name, age, region / country, and position you’re applying for. Again, we’ll follow up with anyone who’s interested with further information about the position.
With the news editor position in particular, please consider your situation before applying. If you don’t think you’ll have the time to fully dedicate those two days per week to the site, you may want to reconsider. We don’t want to get far into the process with someone, only for them to realize that they have other obligations and forcing them to step down.
