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 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, unless otherwise specified.

Convention Booth Staff

We are looking for a short term booth staff at three conventions this year (Origins Game Fair, Gen Con, PAX Unplugged) to be responsible for sales job duties. Duties and responsibilities include working with customers on site at the con or event, answering their questions about our games and other products and directing customers to digital and physical materials available to enhance play as well as ringing up customers for their purchases.

You should be able to discuss board, card and dice games, scifi, and/or Indigenous culture. We will provide training, a staff shirt, and entry to the con or event along with daily pay equal to $18/hour. We will not provide transport to the convention or hotels, so you must either provide those on your own, or be local to the convention.

You must be fully vaccinated and be willing to wear a mask at all times in the booth (regardless of convention policies).

Responsibilities

  • Ensure high levels of customer service
  • Assess customers needs and provide assistance and information on product features
  • Welcome customers to the booth and answer their queries
  • Maintain presentable appearance according to event and company guidelines
  • Actively engage with customers
  • Remain knowledgeable on products offered and discuss available options
  • Process POS (point of sale) purchases
  • Cross sell products

Skills

  • Basic understanding of sales principles and customer service practices
  • Basic Math skills
  • Familiarity with inventory procedures
  • Solid communication and interpersonal skills
  • A friendly and energetic personality with customer service focus
  • Availability to work flexible shifts
  • Familiarity with Coyote & Crow and RPGs in general
  • Indigenous heritage is a plus, but not required

If interested:

  • Email Events @ CoyoteAndCrow.net
  • List “Convention Booth Staff” in the Subject Line
  • Provide a brief resume, reason for interest in the role, any relevant work experience, and which conventions you’re available to work.
  • If you’re also interested in running events at conventions, please also fill out THIS FORM and let us know in your email that you’ve filled it out.

Story Guides And Event Runners

We’re looking for folks that are interested in volunteering to run events at conventions for Coyote & Crow. These may or may not be conventions or events where Coyote & Crow has a booth or official presence. Primarily, we’re interested in folks that are enthusiastic about running one-shot events, for experienced players, and more importantly, new players. We may provide you with specific Stories to run, but you’ll also have some leeway in telling your own, with approvals. Volunteers will get access to swag and other perks not available to the public. In addition to Story Guides, there may be other opportunities as well. If you’re interested, please fill out THIS FORM.

Cosplayers

We’re looking to have a few awesome cosplayers at our official events! For more on this, please email Events @ CoyoteAndCrow.net and use Cosplayers as the subject line.

Game Content Writers

We’re working on a tabletop board game set in the Coyote & Crow universe. We’d like some folks to assist our game designers in filling out some of the content connected to the Coyote & Crow world building. You don’t need to be a game designer, but you do need to be Indigenous and you need to be familiar with Coyote & Crow. We need two people. Please pay very close to attention to what we’re looking for here. We’re looking for two different writers, who can work with our game designers to expand upon our current world building. Again, you don’t need to understand game design. They’ll tell you what they are looking for. You need to help craft and add on to what we’ve already built. We’re looking for writers who can write with authenticity about the following fictional nations in Coyote & Crow:

  • Haudenosaunee

If you have real world Indigenous heritage that connects to these fictional nations and you are familiar with Coyote & Crow enough that you feel you could write about these nations, please apply! This is a very short term writing contract. It won’t require a high word count but it will require you to understand the basics of what the game designers are looking for so that you can write appropriately. We are looking to fill these roles immediately.

  • email coyoteandcrowrpg at gmail dot com (or use our contact form on this site)
  • please put “Game Writer” as the subject line
  • please include links to appropriate or comparable work, writing references and a brief summary of why you’re a good fit for this role.

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 be willing to 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
