Hi everyone,

We've got a really interesting job opening at Sifteo - we're building a

Long description below:

Sifteo, a venture-backed consumer electronics start-up, is seeking a
developer support engineer & evangelist to help our excellent third party
developers make great games.

We are looking for someone who has proven expertise in building gameplay
systems and tools, works well with designers and artists, is passionate
about games, participates in the indie game community, and is excited about
jumping into a start up environment.

You’ll be working with a small team and will be responsible for
evangelizing the platform and supporting our developer community.
Concretely, that means you’ll build development tools, you’ll be on call to
support and push forward games in progress, and you’ll identify and recruit
amazing talent to work on our system.

We are creating Sifteo cubes: wireless blocks with full color screens that
interact with each other and respond to motion to unleash a whole new world
of games. Sifteo cubes feature technology spun out of the MIT Media Lab,
and have been featured in The New York Times, Wired, Engadget, CNET, and

*Yes, this is a position in a startup!*

We’re well funded, and we can pay you. But if the two main priorities in
your life are inherent security and the ability to rely on things planned
months ahead, please stop reading this now and do something else. If
curiosity, ability to suffer, resilience and clear sense of individual
responsibility get you going, please continue reading. You’ll find and we
expect a sense of truthfulness (towards oneself, each other and reality,
learned the hard way), being demanding (is this the best you can do?) as
well as extensiveness (have fun really grasping things in their entirety).*
