We have an entry-level UROP available at the GAMBIT Game Lab for undergraduates who want to do game design and development, but aren't yet sure what role they want to do.
Quality Assurance is the act of analyzing and testing games and tools currently in development. People willing to repeat the same task over and over and over again are most welcome to apply! Testing involves both technical testing (making sure the games run on multiple environments) and focus testing (watching people play the game and collecting data on what they liked and where they got frustrated).
We are currently looking for a marketing intern for the Fall 2011 Semester. You would be working with and reporting directly to the Communication Director for the lab.

You will work closely with our outreach working group in gaining a clear understanding of GAMBITs projects and outreach efforts. We are looking for a 10 hour per week commitment to this position.
About GAMBIT's UROP program
MIT undergraduates who wish to gain experience in developing games should consider joining the fall or spring game development UROP program with GAMBIT. The fall and spring semester UROPs are designed to prepare students for the game development workflow and to help them gain familiarity with development tools that will be needed for the Summer Internship Program. MIT undergraduates working with GAMBIT may elect to receive direct or sponsored UROP funding or may choose to receive credit instead. GAMBIT UROPs should be familiar with standard MIT UROP Office procedures and deadlines.
