It kills me that I can't come live in the UK and be this for everyone (especially myself), I feel sad. Super-distant telecommuting should be an option! What if a Strogg wanted to apply? How far is Stroggos anyways? Maybe one day you can open a SD Canada office and I will run it for you *promise I woudn't wreck the place too badly* The one hired into this position will be the luckiest mammal on earth. :stroggtapir:

Aww. It's an on-site position sadly, but who knows, maybe we'll take over Canada at some point. :)

like you wimps could but retsy is right, you should open a North American office in Canada, great tax breaks, cheap natural gas and electricity, nice folks. The best recreational areas and within 100 km from anywhere you choose, we have fishing in a gazillion lakes and rivers. In short, it's freakin beautiful, inexpensive and even here, where we just had the coldest winter since 1898, we still average 316 days of sunshine a year, tons for solar supplements, plus we have great cheeses

In a nutshell, I'm moving into a slightly different role, and this new person is going to take care of day-to-day community management. Pretty exciting all around. :)

I have a question, I applied to this position directly, although there's also mention of the job opening at gamesjobsdirect.com. Is it ok if I apply through there too? Or is it enough here?

Direct is best, but in general everything goes to the same source, eventually. :)

Great, I asked because on the gamesjobsdirect.com job entry, it doesnt provide the "in 150 or less chars tell us what makes you unique" field. Would it hurt my chances if i sent my application thru there too?

If you've already gone through our own careers section, there's no need to submit again through a third party site. All good!

Great! cheers! I really want this job, and I'll be the second best community manager, after you of course! :D

Been managing a community for five years. That memberbase contains way more extreme personalities than these folks here. They really know how to push you to your diplomatic boundaries. This job would be like a vacation where I get to toy with Drupal. It's not full time though, that would be the only thing missing from the requirements.

I am so tempted to apply. Seeing as I am probably moving back to Surrey soon. Would be awesome to work with such a unique company.

Yes, SD is awesome!:)

I've called a few times into the office about this position and sent yourself a direct message, HR are on leave. Would like to discuss the role/position with someone if possible please.

That sounds like a blast! I manage engineering communities and there are some pretty extreme personalities! Personally, I enjoy the challenge - it'd be boring withouth the "difficult" members.
