Splash, a Fortitude-Valley-headquartered start-up, is looking for two economists to design a virtual economy for its online game in which players create music and perform in virtual venues. Splash’s head of People and Culture reached out to me today to check if I knew anyone who may be interested. Here’s what she wrote about probably the coolest jobs for economists I’ve heard about recently:
…we are hiring two Economists to design and expand our growing virtual economy within Splash across our two games and online virtual marketplace. The positions will focus on user behaviour and satisfaction, pricing strategy and identifying revenue drivers as well as pacing and level up strategy of complex multi-player games. I’ve provided more context about our company below and a link to the job description here.
Our company Splash is building a new creator economy in the Metaverse with our AI-powered music tools and video games. Anyone can perform amazing music to live virtual audiences, build a fan base and earn from their talent. Over 8m players have performed in Splash and we are backed by world leading investors including Amazon’s Alexa Fund.
We feel someone with a passion for gaming would really thrive in this role and it would be a great opportunity to step into the rapidly growing games industry. We would be open to range of experience including economists that bring a strong amount of commercial experience as well as honours/masters students.
Please pass this onto anyone who may be interested, or, if you’re interested yourself, I’d encourage you to apply via the LinkedIn page for the job linked to above.
