KoopaTV Is Hiring!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Want to be part of our staff? Look for job openings below!

Do you want to join a young organization that is making waves across the Internet? Do you want to be part of a company culture where you set your own hours, can wear whatever you want, and basically have unrestricted speech? Do you want the opportunity to talk, play, and write about videogames or anything else all day? If you're okay with not being paid anything (but the résumé [we will even be your references/recommendations], learning, and fun potential are limitless), then KoopaTV is the place for you! And don't worry, we can train you.

That's right, KoopaTV is going to formally have a "Jobs" tab now. Any positions we have open will be listed below, with all of their details. If you would like to apply for any of these, send an e-mail to jobs(at)koopatv.org expressing your interest and why you would be right for the job (include a résumé and references if you got 'em). If you comment below, we'll see it, but it's best to talk about these things in privacy.

We'll have an e-mail-based interview and may ask you to submit some work.

All positions start right away and hires are decided upon an on-going basis.

We do not accept members with ties to the modern KKK, neo-Nazi groups, ISIS, the Taliban, or al Qaeda.

Job Title: Digital Graphics Producer

Description: Are you interested in making things look nice? Do you have the ability to do so? While written content is KoopaTV's bread-and-butter, people don't like walls of text. Breaking up words with pictures and/or audiovisual content is key to captivate people's interest. Having nice pictures also makes for nice thumbnails when sharing KoopaTV content on social media. The KoopaTV Digital Graphics Producer will work in tandem with KoopaTV's writing arm to produce compelling visual content to go along with the words to make a more appealing article overall. The Digital Graphics Producer might also have the opportunity to provide the graphical assets for KoopaTV's videogame-production arm, since we have a history of doing that.
Qualifications:
  • Required:
    • A legally-obtained digital graphics editing program that is better than Paint that saves images in .png
    • A proficiency in using the above program
    • A Discord account
  • Nice to have:
    • Video-editing experience with a legally-obtained video-editing program

You may also design and write the code on new KoopaTV features, like related posts, a flashy random button, and site navigation improvement in general.

    1. AIM is amazing and totally worth getting.

      Obviously not many people still have an AIM account but it's quick, easy, and free.

      (Rawk doesn't even have an AIM account he has a Pidgin account which gives access to multiple instant messenging clients at once.)

  3. Well... AOL? Really? I wasn't aware the whole thing wasn't defunct by now. I wouldn't mind writing some content, I suppose, but you can't really demand for people to get a name defunct. Though I might get it if there's a demand... or something. I'm bored and got nothing better to do.

    I would probably stick to Nintendo-related news and likely a couple theories relating to the universe of Mario, such as what spiked shells come from, why some nonhuman characters have hair and some don't. Lame crap nobody talks about. Though I understand if there's no demand or if you remember the salt I threw your way for talking shit about my dude, Koops.

    1. Oh! You!
      Hi! You're back! Awesome! We enjoyed you when you were tossing salt. No hard feelings from us.

      First of all, AOL Instant Messenger is still a thing. It doesn't, uh, get updates or anything anymore, but it's not defunct. It's a lot better than, say, Skype, for a variety of reasons. These range from the EULAs to the significantly higher degree of personal expression on AIM when actually transmitting text. Also, publishing live reaction logs, which are copy-pasted right from the AIM chatroom, is easier on AIM than Skype.

      We also keep AIM because we have all of the conversations in our AIM Blast (permanent chatroom) logged for the past, I dunno, 5 years or more, long before KoopaTV existed.

      Anyway, sounds good! (Though, Wendy was/is/might/said internally she would write about hair-related things some months ago, but she might not! ...Point is, some folks do talk about it!) We love writing about stuff nobody talks about, actually. That's a lot of our articles and we can put a lot of creativity into that. :p

      Anyway, we totally prefer to talk about hiring decisions privately (such as over e-mail with jobs@koopatv.org) as opposed to the public comments section.

      If you really don't want to get AIM or a chat client compatible with AIM (Rawk uses Pidgin, for example) and/or don't actually want to be part of our staff, then you can always be a re-occurring guest poster.

      But yeah, e-mail us.
