Game Development  - find a friend, build a team, make a game

Game development is a team effort. Of course there are solo developers out there, but here at The Great Journey, we believe in the team. Working together strengthens the game and makes the journey more enjoyable. By supporting people with different skill sets in finding each other and working together, we build a creative culture and strong community.

Your focus will be to create engagement and events in an online environment (Discord) and help planning and hosting events (both internal and external).

The role involves:

  • Responsible for engaging and growing our community.
