With the economy the way it is, it's pretty hard not to let people know about each and every opportunity they might have for landing a job. Hence my cutting and pasting of the below email which was just sent our way, which no, I will not be investigating for legitimacy, despite the fact that it contains all of the following phrases: "Ground Kontrol," "open bar," "full-time positions," and "free games." In other words, this is either (A) the best way to get a job ever, or (B) a brilliant ruse designed to ensnare Portland's unemployed gamers and lure them out of town, Pied Piper-style. is announcing and celebrating our arrival in Portland! We'll be hosting an even at Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade where people can come to learn more about our company and about the hiring we're doing. We're looking for people in full time positions for web development, product management, user experience, data analytics and marketing who want a fun, relaxed job in the video game industry and would like to learn more over free beer and video games. What's not to love?
