CAREERS AND POSITIONS

Let's Make Waves

One of Team Liquid's greatest assets is our community of fans and forum members. We've always been close to those that have supported us the most, and we're lucky that home grown talent always seems to find us. That isn't just true for our players – in fact, many of our staff have grown up with us over the years. They started out as fans and posters before gradually turning their hobby into something greater, and together we continue to make waves in this emerging industry.
"I started out as a shitposter on the forums, and look at me now. I have all these buttons I get to press everyday to make sure the forums I love keep ticking. I get to talk to the players and write about their amazing stories, and I contribute to one of the best teams in the world. It's been an unbelievable experience being part of history with Liquid, but nothing makes me happier than banning a shitposter on TLnet. Does that mean I've come full circle? Maybe I'm banning the next great esports writer, whooooops."

"Even before i heard about Team Liquid, I had heard about Liquipedia. I decided to help out and apparently some people thought I did good work. Eventually I got staffed by Team Liquid to drive the site ahead, and now I work on building and maintaining the platform behind Liquipedia. Getting the chance to work on this project I like so much has been a great experience, which I would do again every day of the week."

We're always on the lookout for that next big wave in esports, and you can be part of it, too. A successful esports team is only the beginning for us; we want to create something unique. 1UP Studios produces some of the industry's best video content, and our writing team creates some of the most compelling features in esports. Once finished, our website will set the standard for sports team sites, because it'll be functional and pretty damn beautiful. And some of you have already helped us do all this.
