Does anyone know how recently these new Krome positions were announced?

There aren't any details pertaining to this on the Krome website.

This was sent to me from their HR department last night

Regarding the list of recent available positions available at the Krome Melbourne branch, posted on their website. I'd really like to know if they've filled any of these positions yet.

Any help info would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, on the jobs page the Krome website still says they have been steadily growing for 10 years and have over 400 employees...a bit out of date.

Considering they only recently laid off most of their Adelade & Melbourne staff, seems odd they're suddenly recruiting Melb again.

They also seem to be fairly tight lipped about recruitment at the moment, i'm wondering if the jobs listed are now all gone.

It wasn't most staff (well in Adelaide it was around 50% of the studio, around 25% in Melbourne) and those that were made redundant were because they weren't needed for any upcoming projects.

The roles that are being recruited for are people that are needed for upcoming or current projects.

Last I heard Krome had hooked up th' deal to do XBLA Microsoft Game Room. Maybe if you've experience with MAME SDK or designing low poly character models then send something in?

You sound like you're in-the-know

Any chance you could tell us if these positions are full? how big the response to them has been? statistics of any kind?

Would be greatly appreciated :)

No idea sorry, I'm no longer with Krome. All I know is what comes from talking to people I know who are there.

so are these jobs still available?

I know one way to find out.

Not directly related to the subject of this thread, but get ready for some big news about Krome (both good and bad) in the next few days.

Based on what I have heard there will be a project talked about, another avoided talking about entirely, and a fairly prominent figure taking a step back.

Project not talked about: Blade Kitten? That's a shameful little smear on Krome's catelogue. A lot of money sunk into that.

But colour me intrigued.

Guys, can we have this discussion elsewhere? Either create a new thread or another non-job related thread? I'd prefer to have the comments for job posts open for enquiries about the job at hand.

We could just make a 'Krome is Krap' thread and everybody just post there about every news item that appears about anything on Tsumea! :)

cant wait for the announcement.

Best of luck to all the Krome guys. No more bad luck for them hopefully. Very few of those let go last year actually found work again (from all reports). But it could be big news if this guys 'tweets' can be read into: http://spacecaptainsteve.blogspot.com/
