Hey folks! This is going to be an ongoing post where I’ll list currently available opportunities to work with the Coyote & Crow team and help us publish great games and content. A few things I want to cover right out of the gate that are relevant to all current and future positions:

  • Native Americans/First Nations folks of all experience levels are encouraged to apply for any/all positions they feel they’re qualified for.
  • Non-Natives are welcome to apply for any positions that aren’t called out as Native only positions.
  • We pay at least competitive rates for the hobby game industry and we strive to pay better than the average.
  • All positions are short term contract positions (for now).
  • All positions are remote/work from home.
  • Please pay close attention to the application process (ignoring it will move you to the bottom of the list).
  • We prefer folks working within the United States but will consider applicants outside of the US.

RPG Project Lead

We need a project lead for our next Coyote & Crow RPG project. This person will report directly to the owner and will oversee a number of writers and artists. The person needs project management experience, preferably in the RPG sphere, and needs to be comfortable managing a number of freelancers. They need to have an aggressive vision for the project as a whole and be willing to take charge. They need to have(or quickly gain) a good understanding of the rules, setting, and themes of Coyote & Crow.

Additionally, you’ll be doing content edits and re-writes in some cases, so this position is for an Indigenous candidate, only. You’ll also need writing and editing experience.

This is a short-term, flat rate contract that should be over by the end of February and shouldn’t require more than about 15 hours a week. Work would start upon hire. However, this may grow into our first full-time position at Coyote & Crow LLC and we’d love it if applicants were interested in something long term.

  • email coyoteandcrowrpg at gmail dot com (or use our contact form on this site)
  • please put “RPG Project Lead” as the subject line
  • please include links to appropriate or comparable work
  • please include an idea of how familiar you are with Coyote & Crow
  • please include a resume and appropriate references.

Pacific Northwest Writer

We’re looking for a fiction writer, Indigenous to the Pacific Northwest, specifically, the Washington/Oregon/Idaho/Vancouver area (not a transplant Native, but with actual ancestry and cultural knowledge from the region), for a large writing project. This would be a long term contract and would require a deep understanding of the Coyote & Crow core rules prior to starting work. This isn’t an opportunity for a new or inexperienced writer and please be ready to share examples of your published work. If interested, please

  • email coyoteandcrowrpg at gmail dot com (or use our contact form on this site)
  • please put “PNW Writer” as the subject line
  • please include links to appropriate or comparable work
  • please include a brief resume with relevant experience
  • please include any relevant references, especially if they are board game or TTRPG related

Musicians

We’d like to partner with a Native musician or musicians to help create music for Coyote & Crow. This is a licensing opportunity where we would license Coyote & Crow to the musician(s). We are looking for Indigenous musicians with the ability to produce high quality tracks and have a good understanding of traditional Indigenous instruments and vocals, as well as modern electronic music (see our Kickstarter video, featuring A Tribe Called Red for a perfect example of what we’re looking for). This opportunity is for producers Indigenous to North America only.

  • please put “Soundtrack” as the subject line
  • please include links to appropriate or comparable work

Translators

An important part of our mission is language revitalization. While we cannot afford to research and print Coyote & Crow in every single Native American language, we would like to see just how close we can get. If you speak a language native to North America and would be interested in translating our rule book into your language, we can provide you with significant support (and would run a crowdfunding effort) to help pay for your time. All translated copies would either be free digitally or print-on-demand at cost. Before contacting us, please take into consideration the following:

  • You would be the sole project leader for this and outside of providing you with files, you would be expected to handle this project on your own
  • You’ll need more than an understanding of your language. You’ll likely need community ties to help find the nuance and the context necessary to translate this properly.
  • Depending on your own knowledge, this may take anywhere from weeks to years. Be prepared.

If you’re interested, please contact us:

  • email coyoteandcrowrpg at gmail dot com (or use our contact form on this site)
  • please put “Translation” as the subject line
  • please include your background in games, your language and Native affiliation, and references
  • please be prepared to have ongoing talks before approved

Ojibwe Game Designer

We’re looking to work with an Ojibwe game designer. You must identify as Ojibwe and be able to speak confidently about Ojibwe culture and traditions. You don’t need to have published games on your resume, but you do need to have experience in game design of some sort. This is not a position where a person with no previous experience in game design will thrive. This opportunity is a short term contract position to co-design and develop a tabletop board game with another designer. You’ll be incorporating your game design experience with your Ojibwe knowledge and creating a totally new board game, not set in the Coyote & Crow universe.

  • email coyoteandcrowrpg at gmail dot com (or use our contact form on this site)
  • please put “Ojibwe Designer” as the subject line
  • please include appropriate links
  • please include a brief resume with relevant experience
  • Ojibwe only for this position

Merchandise Producer

We’re currently offering some print-on-demand merchandise through RedBubble. But we’d really like to partner with an Indigenous owned company that can mass produce t-shirts, stickers, pins and other merch for us. If you are that company, please contact us and let’s start talking! (Supporters: please don’t email us recommending companies. We likely know them or are already speaking to them).

  • email coyoteandcrowrpg at gmail dot com (or use our contact form on this site)
  • please put “Merchandise” as the subject line
