Applicants interested in applying for the role should have some of the following kick-ass traits and skills:

  • The resourcefulness of Nathan Drake, the dexterity of Lara Croft and the dogged determination of Master Chief.

  • Review the mega merchandise area and give it your seal of approval (and get loads of free gaming goodies)
  • Hang out with our YouTuber special guests to ensure they are happy and content.
