1) Anti-cheat software engineer

Cheating in a school test might be a decent idea but using cheats in video games is just plain old unfair. Introducing the anti-cheat software engineer, these geniuses research, design and develop software that detects cheating behaviour and programmes. Justice is returned!

2) Team Manager

Like organising people? Maybe this job is for you. Team managers look after teams of gamers who competitively play video games. So what does this consist of? Try traveling the world and doing anything from cooking dinner for the team to organising their travel.

3) 3D Modeler

3D modelers create the wonderful virtual worlds that you roam around when playing video games. And fun fact 3D modelers also create 3D models of human organs which is used in medical research. How dope!

4) Digital Architect

Digital architects do more than just design video game sets. They take in account a range of different textures such as how rain affects the appearance of a building. Who knew?

5) Viral advertiser

As the name suggests, viral advertisers are the brains behind the flash gaming adverts that you see at bus stops, at the beginning of Youtube videos and pretty much everywhere. Their job is to find the most action-packed moments of a video game and condense them into a short clip.
