Hello, there! We are Paralink Software. We are a startup software and game development group with a passion for developing software and games. In the middle of developing one of our games, Paradox, we realized that three people was not enough to develop a game, run a website, and manage projects, so we thought, “Hey, why not invite other people who share the same passion?” So that's exactly what we’re doing. That's right. We are in need of people like you who have the skills to manage a website, maybe you’re skilled with developing computer software. You may be an artist looking to expand your skills. While doing this you will gain the valuable experience of working with a group. We don't bring in any profit yet, so we cannot pay anything but we really hope to be able to soon, but we can assure you that this game has real potential, and that's why we need passionate volunteers who truly love what they do. We look forward to having you with us! So with that already said, here's a description of our game, reasons to join us, a list of criteria, and available positions.

- Paralink Software

Now, before we get started, you may be wondering what our game is. It’s called Paradox. Paradox is a sci-fi themed real-time strategy game involving a grid-based combat structure, in which you create your weapons by organizing your units into a specific form. The aim of the game is to earn points by destroying other units, and with those points you can upgrade your units, but there is a risk to it. If you do not utilize your newly-upgraded unit to recover your points and more, you risk having less points than the opponent and losing. Whoever has the most points when time runs out wins.


Reasons to join us:

- No set work hours. Just one, easy-to-remember target date.

- Relax. If we miss a target date, it's a target date, not a
deadline. We love quality productions. We release our software and games when they’re ready. No rush.

- Need a vacation? No problem! Just give us a heads-up ahead of time!

- We value every person at Paralink Software. Here, respect is the policy.


- No contracts! You are free to resign at any time, but we'll be sad to see you leave us.




NOTE: Ability to keep in contact fairly often is a must. We prefer that members of Paralink Software have these two methods of contact: Skype and Google.
