Jobs

Durake.Me is now accepting volunteer applications for our Content Creation Team.

Why should I join the Durake.Me Crew?

The Durake.Me Gaming Community has nearly a hundred members. With this size comes lots of opportunities across the entire group. If you're a student in high school or college, you may be interested in getting some awesome real-world experience that would look great on a resume. Whereas if you're an adult with some extra free time, you may be interested in helping out our Moderation Team. Across the team, there is certainly a position that will fit you!

How much time do I need to dedicate?

Running a relatively large gaming community is no easy feat, and it definitely is time consuming. That said, we still are incredibly flexible and understanding. We do not have set hours of work, and real life ultimately takes priority - whether it's your job, school, or a personal matter. Some positions do require a minimum amount of time per week.

Do Durake.Me Staff get paid?

The Durake.Me Gaming Community only has volunteer staff, therefore our crew does not get paid. Nobody on the team is making money off the community in any way. However, our crew is much like a family. You'll find that you will want to be here in the chats talking and working with everyone, we all love what we do.
