SNK Playmore hiring for new roles

mini-snkpSNK Playmore’s recruitment page┬áhas mentioned openings for developer roles for a while. However, today both Gatoray at Twitter and Professor at the Madman’s Cafe pointed out links to the SNKP section of a Japanese recruitment site which mentions a few new roles for the company’s Osaka’s office – to quote Professor:

Consumer Psychology-
The company is looking for psychology graduates to work in their development team to make their games more appealing. I guess they still haven’t figured out why MSD had so many downloads.

Statistics and Analysis-
The company is looking for statistics graduates to analyze data useful for game development.

Overseas sales and business management-
For taking care of business sales, contracts, etc.

All roles are expected to require fluency in Japanese.
