This one’s for the ladies: Ubisoft‘s Frag Dolls are looking for some fresh meat to join the team, and are holding an Open Casting Call until July 23rd to find just the right girl for the job.
Remember: Looks can be deceiving. Frag Dolls aren’t just professional gamers (although, of course, that is a part of it) – they’re also a crucial part of Ubisoft‘s marketing and promotions strategy, making this a great entry-level job for girls who want to get into the industry. There’s also a little women-in-gaming advocacy and charity work involved – the fame that comes with the role is just an added bonus.
This last year has been one with a lot of momentum and change as we have greatly evolved in our jobs at Ubisoft, are currently re-training for the competitive gaming scene, and have some big Frag Doll shoes to fill with the departure of a few of our beloved Dolls.
