General application

Thank you for your interest in joining the Lifeboat Network!

We are always looking for talent!  If we don’t have a specific posting, but you have skills you think we could use, please feel free to contact us.

To Apply

Please email the following information:

  • Introduce yourself. Use your real name, not your IGN.
  • Include the position you are applying for in your email subject line.
  • Why would you be particularly well suited to the position?
  • If it’s appropriate, include a link to something you have done.  Show us examples.
  • Please attach a resume, as a PDF, with our name as a part of the filename.
  • We value an ability to work with a team.  Give an example of where you functioned well in a team of people.
  • Feel free to submit your application again later, especially if we have announced somewhere that we are looking for your skill set.  (Wait a month between applications!)
  • Screen your application for grammar and spelling mistakes, and use well-thought-out paragraphs.
  • If we do set up an interview, and you have never had an interview before, you would be wise to practice being interviewed.

bossTime-saving tip:  Don’t apply from your phone.  We won’t read it.
We can’t possibly get a sense for your communications skills without a cover email and resume or examples of your work.

For all positions:

  • Taxes: If you are in Minnesota, you will be a regular W2 employee. If elsewhere, you will be considered a contractor, and thus will need to file local taxes. (This is not hard, but must be done!) You do not need to live in the U.S. to apply for many positions.  If you are non-US you will probably have to pay taxes in your country.  We have several contractors that do that.
  • Students and young people:  We have many students on our team, ages 15+.  Make sure your parents know about your involvement and it is completely okay with them.  For many, this is an ideal flexible part-time job.   School comes first, so we understand putting in fewer hours around tests and family vacations.  But, do not apply unless you expect you would typically be available for at least 10 hours a week.
  • Values: We are a values-driven company, committed to making a positive difference by serving others.   This is the central reason we run Minecraft servers.  We won’t do something if we think our players would be worse for it.  We will only be making positive games.  If you have your heart set on making a dark game, we would not be a good fit.
  • Equal opportunity employer and we expect everyone on our team to treat others with respect.   The mood of our team is upbeat and positive.  We have something special going on here, and we all feel lucky to be part of it.
