Admit it, at some point in your pimple-prime days of poorly-timed erections and fantasies about dating that popular cheerleader, you also dreamed about getting paid to play video games.
Well, here's your chance.
But this just isn't any video game, this is a famous racing series. Yes, cars, video games, all in one job.
It's like you're 13 and the Countach poster on your wall and the Cindy Crawford pullout under your mattress have come to life and collided in your pants.
The job, titled Car Fanatic: Vehicle Accuracy Tester, is being filed by a third party, so the exact company isn't known. The job is located in Redmond, Washington, home to Turn10 Studios, makers of Forza, but I'll let you hypothesize what developer is offering this opportunity. Keep in mind Redmond is home to many game developers.
Here is the job description:
Are you a motorsports geek? Are your friends/family sick and tired of listening to you spout off facts and figures like a walking dictionary of racing info? Can you define the optimal line through the world’s greatest race tracks? Can you break down the differences between the different layouts on the Silverstone Circuit? Do you know which tracks feature “The Karussel," “Mulsanne Straight," and “The Corkscrew?" Are you a member of a car club? Do you incessantly post on message boards? Do you attend auto shows, meets, trade shows or other car-oriented events? Do you autocross, race, rally, drag, or drift in real life? Do you memorize chassis and engine codes, peak horsepower, VTEC engagement RPM, final drive ratios, and boost pressures?
