Pokémon developer Game Freak is seeking qualified candidates to fill 23 positions—from management to graphic artists to programmers, and more.

Tokyo recruiting company CREEK & RIVER distributed the hiring announcement earlier this month. Seventeen positions are full-time, while the remaining six are contract-based. Those interested are directed to submit an online application.

Online interviews will be conducted via Skype on two different occasions; the first meeting will be from May 21-23, and the second meeting will be from June 4-6. All job applications must be submitted no later than June 5.

For some within the Pokémon community, this is a breath of fresh air. “Very good to hear,” said Twitter user Mr1Skill7. “Game Freak’s biggest weakness was always their lack of expertise and workforce. I am glad they are actually trying to change that.”
