Vesteria - Scripting Partner
The Vesteria Team is looking for talented scripters to help us take our ambitious fantasy game to the next level. This position is being offered 18+ on-site or remote.
We’re a team of MMORPG lovers that took advantage of Roblox’s California-based Incubator project to jumpstart the creation of the most ambitious fantasy world on Roblox. After the Incubator, we moved to Seattle to continue the vision of this game and are eventually planning to return to the San Francisco Bay Area where our team originated.
Vesteria is one of the largest worlds ever built on Roblox, with over 20 million square studs of playable content and main source code containing over 77,000 unique lines of code. Our talented team of over a dozen remote contractors designs original models, art, sound effects and music to help build our immersive world. Behind the scenes, Vesteria runs on bleeding edge tech, taking advantage of sophisticated systems such as custom replication AnimationController characters/entities, client-server-synced entity state machines and our unique three-layered deployment pipeline (internal, testing, production - all within the same game.)

About The Job
We are looking for a veteran Roblox scripter and MMORPG lover to join our team remotely or at our downtown Seattle office. As a Vesteria Team scripter, you’ll be interfacing with our custom systems to implement monster AI logic and design and implement combat abilities for our players. These abilities may range from epic magical spells to implementations of intricate melee animations. We’re also looking for individuals who can help us optimize and improve some of our larger scripts and go after tough issues to help ensure a smooth experience for players.
What we’re looking for:
- Experience making/working with particles, beams, trails and animations
- Detail-oriented, able to work with contractors to ensure the best animation and sound effect assets get created for the job.
- An emphasis on future-proofing and writing legible code that is easy for others to work with
Additionally, we’re also interested in bringing on scripters that specialize in UI/UX design and visual effects to help us make reactive, crisp and fast UI that works on all platforms.
If you don’t match these exact specifications but are still highly proficient in a different scripting field, we encourage you to send in an application anyway, but please note what your proficiency is and how you would be able to contribute to the team.
Payment starts at $4,000 a month for on-site applicants and $3,000 a month for remote. For applicants interested in joining us in Seattle, we will work with you to cover transportation and living costs for the first month. For remote applicants, Robux payments are an option. Payment is also open to negotiation.
We want to grow a long-term partnership with you and are willing to offer you vesting shares in our company and a guarantee that your salary will scale with the growth of the game.
If you live in a city with WeWork co-working locations, we will set you up with a membership on our team so that you can chose to come in and work in these spaces.
If you’re interested, please send an application to email@example.com. Make sure to include:
Full name, Roblox username, location & age
Your favorite personal creation
Your strengths and weak points as a scripter. If you specialize in something other than what’s mentioned above, include detailed information.

Whether you are able to join us on-site in Seattle or not.
Optional - In-person interview for developers in the Bay Area.
If you’re able to come to San Mateo this week, I’d love to meet with you. DM me on the dev forums for this option.
Feel free to reply to this thread or DM me privately with any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
