A ‘game-changing’ Seattle MMO company seeks passionate lead developer whom wants to positively impact humanity with his/her work!


We have a unique opportunity and are going to fill it with the world's sickest young game developer. This position is for someone ambitious and dedicated who sees him/herself "getting somewhere and being someone" within five years. That said, this position is available only for a team player who wants to succeed within an equally talented and close-knit young art/biz/dev team!


We are launching a "mid-market" browser-based MMO project similar in complexity to an MMO project such as Puzzle Pirates. The conceptual design is scoped and defined for success. This project is incredibly innovative, but our secret sauce isn’t what we’re doing immediately—it’s what’s next in the pipeline for Novel Conception!

The talented individual we are looking for would have some background in Java, and is preferred to have previously participated in the development of a game project--ideally, a similarly complex game project. An ideal candidate will have 1 or 2 years of related professional or hobbyist experience, however, we will also consider those with additional experience. It’s critical that whomever joins this team believes in the reality of doing something out-of-this-world, becoming the next big thing and leading the pack in an industry!

The person hired for this lead development position will be a core component of our leadership team. This will be their company too, and they will receive an equity stake. Thus, it is important this person know we are a long-term, values-driven and forward-thinking organization. Moreover, Novel has secured the financing to provide office space, equipment, supplies and the entrepreneurial salaries needed for our team. Our developer will have an unfathomable opportunity to challenge and advance their skill set and versatility while working with an exceptionally talented and passionate young team on a unique videogame project. This opportunity is a rare one and will be given to the absolute best!

A few quotes about Novel:

"...ready to step up onto the big stage." -- BusinessWeek magazine, Bill George, one of the most respected names in business, called Novel's leadership

"The most likely to succeed I have seen in many years." -- Chris Taylor, one of the top 30 most experienced and influential people in the games industry, calls Novel's model

If you know this position is calling out to you, act this moment! We require a cover letter be submitted so that you have a chance to tell us why you want to become a part of our team, where you are with your career right now and where you want to go with it. Please send your information to HR@NovelConception.com. We look forward to talking with you.
