    Are the period of experience and previous games shipped as essential as the skills? Surely someone can be good at what they do without having a number of years in the specific industry or a game under their belt? How are we supposed to break into the industry?

    Red Tribe are a relatively small company so therefore probably want more experienced people. The bigger companies like IR Gurus, Krome, Pandemic etc are probably willing to take on more promising juniors.

    They hire entry level people too. They just hired 3 talented people from my class ;)

    "OR for an entry level position exceptional skills in level building that are demonstrable."

    It seems your question is answered right in the advert itself. :)

    Recently there has been a lot more information coming out of Red Tribe. I spoke to one of their guys over the weekend, at the Egames Expo. They will end up being one of the largest developers locally there's no doubt about that now given the number of people they are hiring. The budgets they are getting are huge compared to other local studios. They're hiring much more aggressively too. They really need the staff unlike some developers who just keep their ads running in the hopes of pickup up one or two new recruits (you know who you are). Salaries internally are being boosted too which is good to see. Two IR Gurus' senior engineers are heading over to Red Tribe. That would make a total of 4 people that have left IR for Red Tribe over the last 12 months.

    The budgets are big, but the deadlines are really tight and the overtime schedule is large. They really need staff because people keep leaving!

    Hahaha, nice try :) The turnover rate is low, probably too low, We rarely do overtime and the timelines are very healthy. That's the whole point. Big budgets, longer timelines, little if any overtime and we even get an extra 2 weeks of annual leave every year, that's a nice Christmas break for all of us this year :) We all know what some of the other studios are like so cut the crap.

    That's the great thing about working on such large titles. No 12 month schedules here. There's a large number of people working here now, you better get your facts straight mate cause you're pissing off a lot of hard working people. Get your facts straight and play fair, Redtribe is a great local studio, one of the best. There's plenty of people out there to hire so stop the dirty tactics, it's not necessary.

    Yeah I went for a interview for red tribe back in january of this year, and I was from IR Gurus.

    Interesting company and will be interesting to see how they go. Chris Mosely seemed to be focused on not having a staff that were working in sweat shop conditions.

    I ended up going elsewhere though and I'm pretty happy now compared to the position I had at IR Gurus, but I've heard they improved their game quite a bit lately.

    Please note that the REDTRIBE offices will be closed from the 21st of December through to the 8th of January for the Christmas & New Year break. We will continue interviewing right up to the 21st and then commence again after the 8th of January.

    Kind Regards
