This job is no longer accepting applications.

We are on the lookout for traditional survival gaming experts. We are looking for players that love nothing more than being plonked into a hostile environment with nothing but the clothes on their back and being forced to survive and thrive. When we refer to traditional survival games, we are referring to games like the following: 

  • The Forest
  • Subnautica
  • Astoneer
  • Don’t Starve
  • Dayz
  • Rust
  • Ark: Survival Evolved
  • Valheim

Plus some other survival horror type games like: 

  • Left 4 Dead
  • Dying Light
  • Dead by Deadlight

If you are a huge fan of one or more of these games, we have topics that we would love you to cover. So if this interests you, please apply for this position and we will see if you are a good fit! 

Please don’t apply for this position unless you are a keen survival game player and know at least one of these games very well. Simply being aware of these games or having a passing interest will not cut the mustard!

  • Someone who can write detailed guides, news, and reviews around the survival gaming niche
  • Someone who is an active member of the survival community
  • Applicants who can fill multiple niches
  • Someone who understands survival games down to the finest detail and is passionate about expressing their opinions about this. (Not just someone who has played a few hours of one game, please)
  • Positive attitude and willingness to go above and beyond to produce unique and eye-catching content (Not just Google Research and SEO tweaking)
  • Must be able to demonstrate subject matter expertise before hire!
