Listen up, Battlefield 3 fans. Did you ever dream of working for DICE ? Have you fancied the thought of using the banhammer to smite those who would lie and cheat their way to unearned success? Those of you who live in Stockholm, Sweden (or are willing to relocate) are in luck. DICE is hiring a special anti-cheat administrator to help relieve online players of the idiocy of online cheaters.
Currently, DICE is taking cheating in Battlefield 3 very seriously, doing as much as reaching out to the community for help and righting errors regarding secondary methods of banning cheaters. However, the Sweden-based company wants to take the threat of cheating to the next level and has sought to hire someone to be devoted full-time to the pursuit and banishment of cheaters.
The position's description and desired qualifications are now available on the Swedish Monster job site and in fact, the position actually looks quite easy to contend for, should you have more than a few years in the gaming industry under your belt -- specifically, community management or data management via QA or testing.
Here's the official job description:
"In our continued effort to keep our games free from cheating, we are now looking for an Internet savvy administrator.
The administrator will compose an absolutely vital function to secure the online experience our games represent by actively be a part of the community and keep up to date with the current cheat exposure. The administrator will also own the analytical work with our player behavior data to keep our leaderboards and game play filled with fair play."
Those willing to relocate to Sweden (home of Swedish Fish!) who feel they are qualified to handle the job might want to throw their resume into the hat for consideration.
The team at DICE has been very consistent with how much they have been maintaining and keeping an eye on Battlefield 3 to ensure that it is the first-person shooter sequel that everyone has been expecting and wanting. Not too long ago, Alan Kertz took to Reddit and discussed upcoming weapon attachment adjustments that would be coming to the game. The developer is clearly not content with just resting on its laurels -- enjoyment of Battlefield 3 is driven by repair, as well as additions, and DICE is delivering just that.
What do you think about the creation of an anti-cheat administrator position at DICE? Should other developers follow suit?
Battlefield 3 is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
