The job will take place in Azuchi, Osaka. The contract will be six months long, with HR renewing it once that time is up, and there’s a chance that you’ll be taken on full-time after a year or two. Granted, Vanillaware is looking for someone who’ll be a permanent part of the staff. Even during probation, you will receive the same treatment, benefits, and pay as a fulltime employee. Examples of benefits include health insurance and a transportation budget. The pay starts from 220,000 JPY ($1408.20 per month). 

Vanillaware is currently recruiting for programmers, 2D animators, and background designers. It wants people who know how to use C++ and has interest in learning DirectX.

Interested parties should send in a portfolio of over five drawings or comics, as well as details such as how long it took you to finish them.
