What is the city/state for this position? Is a “remote position” or a “in place position”?

Great questions, sorry for the ambiguity.
The company is headquartered in Skokie, IL, just north of Chicago. The employee will need to work out of the office due to the physical nature of the games.

Thanks for your interest!

I have 2 more questions:
1- this position is only to people from US and/or IL or foreign people can apply too;
2- what is the duration of the contract?

Hi again!

1 - The position is open to anyone who can live and work in the United States.
2 - We have a full-time salaried position open. It has no particular end date.
