Tuckersoft are on the hunt for engineers
The company in Black Mirror‘s first full-length movie Bandersnatch is real and they’re currently recruiting for engineers.
The film, released today on Netflix, sees Tuckersoft hire main character Stefan to help build 80s adventure game Bandersnatch.
The movie has an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure element to it, where viewers can pick their own storyline.
As Metro points out, Netflix have now added another interactive element to the film – a recruitment ad from Tuckersoft. However, they’re actually recruiting engineers for the streaming giant.
Mr Tucker’s (Asim Chaudhry) face is printed on the ad, which reads: ‘Are you a buddying computer games designer?’
“We’re looking for new designers with new ideas at Tuckersoft. We’ve got state of the art computers, with 64kb RAM, 8-bit graphics cards and a team of top game designers, lead by our visionary CEO and games expert, Mohan Tucker,” it continues.
“Have you got what it takes to the next top games designer? If so, get in touch now!”
Once viewers follow the link, they’re transported to a Netflix recruitment page, which features a list of software engineering careers in countries across the world.
Meanwhile, a series of Black Mirror spin-off novels has been postponed indefinitely. Creator Charlie Brooker had previously announced a three-book adaptation of the series, which was set to include all-new tales from the Black Mirror universe.
However, earlier this year, Brooker said he had “sort of messed up a bit” by announcing the books. “It was slightly tricky,” he said. “[The novels] ended up demanding slightly more involvement than myself and Annabel [Jones, showrunner] had time for. I’m not sure when or if that [book series] will appear. Probably not.”
