I would assume that's why these positions are posted here. Even though most of us have no industry experience, we know CryEngine inside and out. Makes more sense to hire from a community that knows your engine rather than somebody that doesn't but has spent time elsewhere in the industry.

It would be awesome if Crytek had more entry level positions for those people that lack, or have no industry experience, but still have the talent to contribute to a project. Why shouldn't somebody be able to do what they love just because they haven't had the opportunity to get the experience?

I'd love to be a level artist at Crytek. I would love that job with a passion. The requirements for that kind of position though are just demoralizing.

I never worked in the games industry before, so neither 2 years of experience in the industry nor did i work on a AAA title. I just played around with their baby.

I'm sure the news will echo across the internet, so it won't be for just here.
Crytek are looking for something specific, and have their reasons to do so.

However I do agree that there is plenty of talent here, some know the Cryengine very well, some don't. But there are people on both sides that have great artistic talent which could be put to good use.
I guess maybe they want a senior with experience in the industry so that they understand the inner workings of a large game development studio and the general procedures that are put in place.

Which in my opinion, someone is going to have to learn something either way, none harder than the other, but if Crytek find someone who is both skilled with the Cryengine AND has industry experience, they have then found what they are looking for.

If you want to apply for a job at Crytek, just apply, show them what you've got, senior or no senior, you may be what they are looking for. The worst that can happen is you don't get a job with them (which is no different to the position you're in now), and obviously the best that can happen is you do get a job with them, so why not give it a shot :)
(Just look at what Cry-JR just said as an example ;) )

Anyway, good luck to any applicants. Hopefully one of our fellow forum members gains position, but if not, ohwell, better luck next time! :D

I would apply myself, especially to be able to help out with Ryse (they could make use of my Colosseum :P), but I don't believe these positions are for Ryse, so not applying :P

:love: Adam :love:

The good thing about someone who never worked in the industry before is that he doesn't have any bad habits from another company. It's just easier to "tweak" new guys to your needs ;)

I personally read that as "Corrupt".

Good luck to all applicants, theres quite a few from Crymod that would doubtless have the skills required. :happy:

Yay I got the position :)

Now you can all stop applying, ahem.... ;)

No, seriously anyone who thinks they might have a chance should go for it. You never know?

Kudos to Crytek for giving us modders a formal shout.

Cheers..
