^ That's about $1400 a month.

I would be interested. My English is above average, and I love playing video games. But I wouldn't really want to live in Germany. Also, it's still a month until I finish my GCSEs, so I don't have any qualifications.

€ 1.100, is that all? I wouldn't relocate to another country for double that amount, especially to test (note: not play) games for a living. unfinished and probably low quality games too.

@ EWJ -
well, you DO get to play them. They even have tournaments. But testing comes first, doesn't it? :P
And the 1.100 are NET, yours to play with, health insurance, pension, social security things payed.

Questions?
Send an email to me.

Kind regards

You mean after taxes? Not bad, if that's the case.

That only comes to around £750. I was earning more than that when I was 15 and that was even below the minimum wage.

for no formal education, it's not bad. But if someone has to relocate to get the job probably not worth it. For someone in Germany though, wouldn't be bad.

I agree.

Doesn't sound like a bad job but that pay is ridiculous. You can get more working 45 hours a week in McDonalds. Who in the right mind would relocate to Germany for peanuts? Not me thats for sure...

I seriously don't think this guy is asking anyone to relocate to any country. They have jobs like that in the U.S. and other places.

He's asking people to move to Germany, I believe.

I see, even if you live in another European country it wouldn't be worth it.

the irony

Also you must be pretty desperate for employees if you're advertising on some random message board.

I wonder what kind of pension you get with 1,100 a month salary? Also a pension is only good if you plan to stay there for life, which I don't think many people would.

They're advertising on this board because Shenmue Dojo keeps it real.
