Why you should join the Fight My Monster team

by dylan on November 8, 2011

Fight My Monster has been one of the most entertaining and educational (in the ‘I’ve actually learned something new’ sense) companies I’ve ever been involved with (I’m Executive Chairman). I’m delighted to announce that we’re hiring. You should join us. Here’s why:

1. The under-twelve market is going to destroy the Internet
And then reinvent it all over again. This demographic is not on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and generally only use email from about 11yrs (ish). They’re the first generation to grow up with access to the Internet from the day they could touch a screen. Their standards for UI, entertainment experiences and service are utterly different to those that shaped our current online giants. What we’re learning and seeing as the Fight My Monster 7-12 boys community gets larger and larger is going to shape the Internet for the next ten years.

2. We’re serious about our technology
Dominic (founder and CEO) is a well-known contributor in the scalable computing space, and created the Pelops client library for Cassandra (the open-source highly scalable NoSQL database used in Twitter, Netflix and increasing parts off the Internet), the Cages distributed locking system, and other “scale7″ components including a clustered game server that will be released as open source soon. Beneath our brand and community lurks a super-scalable modern architecture which is part of our growing success.

3. Fight My Monster is not just a game
Fight My Monster started out as a game. But our players are using it more and more as a super-safe social network. Just look at all the YouTube videos they’re creating and sharing about their tournaments and battles.

4. We’re growing. Fast.
Six months ago, there were a few hundred thousand monster battles per month. Last month we saw almost 1.5M.

5. We’re a challenge
Being successful in the kids space is a serious challenge. Just listen to some of the excellent talks that Michael Acton-Smith (founder of Moshi Monsters, our female equivalent) has given. You can’t simply use social game design. You can’t use performance marketing. If you think you’re good and want to be challenged, come and join us.

We’re looking for Java developers, a Community Director or if you think you can bring something special that isn’t either of those, get in touch and tell us why.
