NVIDIA's CEO on RTX Remix and Portal with RTX
As a visual showcase of what a remaster meets remake can be, as a re-release of sorts, and as a reminder that classic design and pacing will always be just that, Portal with RTX is a triumph.

Is this an on-site position, or one that's possible to be filled by a remote applicant?
I know just the person that would be suitable for this...

At the moment we are looking for someone in Brisbane that can work in the office. If you hit every single thing on that list though, I'd be interested in hearing from you.

Age isn't really a factor. Junior is only in reference to it being an entry-level position.

Sent this on to my cousin, might be something he's interested in.

I applied for the last one when I hated my job. Job now pays triple what I was earning back then and I still really really really want to apply for this one.

Heh, I live right around the corner from you guys, but sadly I only tick the first few boxes. Keen to be an editor, but guess not that in depth with those programming style skills.

Well, I'm re-making my resume, might as well try. I am doing a games degree after all.

Hrm, I can tick all of the boxes, except for liaising in a professional manner, and living in Brisbane... Well, if you ever want to remotely outsource some of it part-time, I've been recently upset that my ssh skills are fading away...

edit: Truth be told I don't know that much about the Internet or the web, I've oversold myself.
edit2: Well, I passed this and others, maybe I'm actually an undiscovered genius.

None of them are what I would call "programming" skills; they're all relatively simple to learn. If you can roll on the command line and follow instructions then that is a big part of it.

i pitty the fool
No way man. After almost 10 years of frequenting the forums, working for AusGamers would be a dream, even if it was unpaid!

Imagine rocking up to work every morning and seeing Trog sitting there with his big red nuke button. It'd just be surreal.

When is the application closing date?

Is this a 25 words or less competition? And then you'll just randomly pick the winning entry right? (This is my application.)

Seriously though this would be fantastic for me, it's like the dream job. I would trade in my RBJ's for this.

Could you offer any kind of ball-park figure as to how much a position like this might pay?
Ryan
Posted 03:42am 12/12/11
@J, I don't think they would mention it here.

Much like above, this would be somewhat of a dream job. Maybe next year when there's an actual chance of me moving to Brissy i'll express interest. But for now, I sit and weep.

It's roughly $20/hour; whatever the award rate for data entry is in Qld.

Posted 08:25pm 14/12/11
Um.. there's an award for that? Might just be me, but last time I looked, there was basically nothing in QLD for award rates in most IT stuff.
Eorl
Posted 09:59pm 14/12/11
He means standard pay.
defi
Posted 11:23am 15/12/11
It's probably under the Clerical Award as its based on data entry. $20 an hour sounds about right.
