Who should apply?
I’m Jesse, or Cihyuu, the team leader, and the person to whom you’ll be sending your application. This section is written directly from me to you, since it concerns the kind of individual who I personally am looking for to be a part of Caimbria Team.
Even though the end goal of the Caimbria project is, of course, to fully realize Caimbria as a game, that isn’t its whole purpose. The more immediate and more important goal is to learn. Both the technical processes and how to work together as a team.
As the team leader I am first and foremost looking for people with the ability to realize that most important facet of the project.
Of course, years of experience and a developed portfolio help to show potential contribution to the project, but they don’t hold a candle to things like passion, initiative, enthusiasm, and curiosity.
If you have that spark, the will to create, and the desire to learn, you may be just the person we're looking for, even if you don't feel technically ready for a project like Caimbria. Naturally if you have both areas covered you'll be an even better candidate. But remember that passion and prowess aren't interchangeable.
If this philosophy resonates with you and we have an open spot in your area, why not write up an application? I'm eager to see what you have to bring to the team!
