The more interesting part of the posting is a development progress, embedded in the job description.
Can work in the best development environment! Interested applicants are expected to work as a core member.
Enjoy flexibility with discretionary work system and good benefits.
Final Fantasy VII: Remake has been in development for a while now, and the game is actually taking shape quite nicely, but the Japanese games publisher Square Enix wants to make it absolutely incredible.
We expect those of you who apply for this position to become an active core member. The required skills are experience in level design and HD game development, with a big plus for those with experience in game development on Unreal Engine 4.
According to Siliconera, the listing makes it clear that it isn't a last minute recruitment drive to deal with an escalating work load. They are now in the thought process of creating a world of Final Fantasy VII that is being resurrected for the modern times.
Looking for new level planners is not a last-minute replacement, Square Enix adds.
In addition, those unfamiliar with Final Fantasy VII are encouraged to apply. Knowledge of Final Fantasy 7 is not required, apparently, as the publisher hopes the new recruits to inject fresh ideas into the remake.
Remember that Final Fantasy VII: Remake is an episodic, multi-volume game so there's no guarantee whether or not the first installment is finished, and if the team is expanding to help build the other portions of the game.
