Intern—Summer/Fall 2024

Monte Cook Games is looking to welcome an intern to our creative, spirited, and innovative team for the summer or fall (or both)! Is that you or someone you know?

This is a paid internship at a modest hourly rate; we anticipate approximately 10 hours of work per week. The intern will be considered a contractor. The internship will have defined beginning and ends dates; we can work with you to establish dates that align with your academic calendar and availability. We give preferential consideration to applicants who will receive academic credit for the internship. Although it isn’t necessary, we may also give preferential consideration to applicants local to the Kansas City or Seattle areas. We strongly encourage applications from people who are members of underrepresented or marginalized groups.

Here are some of the traits we’re looking for in an intern:

  • A solid knowledge and understanding of the Cypher System.
  • A wellspring of personal creative ideas that easily adapts itself to a variety of styles and needs.
  • Great communication skills, particularly the ability to produce written communications that are clear, charismatic, and grammatically correct.
  • A high degree of personal organization, and the ability to quickly understand and adapt to the processes and organizational structure of our company.
  • The ability to work effectively and reliably with a minimum of supervision.
  • A home office environment (or access to another work environment) that includes sufficient computer, software, and internet resources to conduct your work.

And here’s a breakdown of what you might be asked to do:

  • Assist the creative team with research, analysis, and possibly some writing, review, editing, or layout tasks (depending on your skills and academic program).
  • Compile and update a database related to Cypher System rules and mechanics.
  • Assist with customer service and community management.
  • Assist with marketing activity, particularly with web content development and social media.
  • Attend one or more weekly meetings held online via videoconference.
  • Any of a million other tasks that arise during our busy work days!

To apply for this position, please send an email to teri@montecookgames.com with the words “Application for Intern position” in your subject line. Include or attach these items to your email:

  • A cover letter detailing your experience with the Cypher System including, but not limited to, what supplements you’re familiar with and details about Cypher System campaigns or adventures you’ve played. Include your personal descriptor—every member of our team has one (for example, Teri, our managing editor’s descriptor is an excitable editor who emends exceptional encounters and explanations).
  • Your resume and an overview of your academic program (if applicable); if you will get academic credit for this internship be sure to mention that.
  • A link to any work samples or a portfolio, if that’s relevant.
  • Contact information for three references.

Apply by March 31st, 2024.
