Gaming Broadcast Quality Assurance Staff
The Gaming Stage is the FanimeCon Gaming Hall’s primary exhibition showcase for demonstrating the top attendee talent! Located in Exhibit Hall 3, the Gaming Stage displays competitive talent potentially including (but not limited to): League of Legends, Overwatch, and Smash Ultimate. Not only does it showcase competitive talent, but offers recreational gameplay that anybody can participate in with popular local games such as Towerfall: Ascension, The Jackbox Party Packs, and Overcooked!
The Gaming Broadcast Quality Assurance Staff role puts you in front of the scenes to ensure all is going well. You take feedback from various avenues (spectator feedback, commentor feedback via Twitch, and etc.) and pass this through to the Gaming Stage Broadcast Ops team so they can make the appropriate adjustments. While the Gaming Broadcast Quality Assurance Staff team is responsible for moderating the Twitch chat, you will also be responsible for keeping digital brackets current and making overlay changes in between matches so that they are ready for immediate deployment. Lastly, you are a spectator-facing team member and will be responsible for fielding questions and comments from at-con attendees and at-home observers which will occasionally require expediting these requests or comments to an appropriate entity if you are unable to respond to these yourself. This role will require 24 hours of service to the department over the course of the weekend (Thursday through Monday) to be scheduled with your department head based on needs and availability.
+ Desired Skills:
- Any experience with image manipulations programs such as Photoshop, GIMP, etc.
- Any experience with Windows operating systems.
- Customer service and/or digital moderation experience.
- Any experience with streaming programs (OBS, Xsplit, etc.)
- Any experience with online bracketing systems such as Challonge, Bracket Ninja, etc.
- Approachable and friendly personality.
