Description

Want to help build a truly innovative approach to education in a unique startup environment? Classcraft is rethinking what going to school means for millions of students around the world. By applying principles typically used in video games to the classroom experience, Classcraft is having a positive impact on many key issues facing today’s disengaged students.

Featured in over 100 media outlets, including BBC, Engadget, Fast Company, and VentureBeat, Classcraft now has over 4 million users in 75 countries and offices in New York City, Montreal, and Sherbrooke, QC.

We’re a great team looking for someone with three-plus years of experience writing for video games or movies to join us full-time at our Montreal office. Qualified candidates should have extensive creative writing training and professional experience working in the fantasy genre with MMORPGs, tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons, or choose-your-own-adventures. Experience creating story collaboratively with a team is a major plus.

We’re all very self-driven, positive people and, as a result, we’re seeking someone who’s equally down to give themselves to their work and excited to tackle challenges head-on.

  • Help Classcraft’s illustrators to convey accurate story details through compelling visuals
  • Research education trends/technologies to strengthen story foundations and themes
  • Tie story closely to Classcraft’s game mechanics, educational principles, and values
  • Consolidate, streamline, and maintain all story notes and files
  • Advance relationships with key education publishers through collaboration on quests
