Remote International students can apply

My company is a start-up that specializes in hosting online tournaments and leagues for competitive gamers nationwide. We have been in the eSports scene for almost 5 years running the events through Twitter only. We are a big name in some games but our goal is to build a website that allows us to diversify into other gaming communities and cross promote our events on other social media platforms. 


For this project I am looking for something general. Log In, Create Account, League Page, Tournament Page, Sign up Page for both leagues and tournaments, etc. I can explain more in a message with the student.


Once the website is completed, we expect to utilize it as a centralized location for everything a gamer, video game supporter, upcoming eSports talent (gfx designer) or esports orgs needs to network, have fun, stay up-to-date and develop friendships.

  • Collect analytics from competitor websites to measure what the community is interested in and what functions are used the most.

  • Start with a general and easily navigable interface that allows us to run tournaments and leagues and also allows people to create an account and sign up for said events. 
  • Upgrade website by adding features using a feedback system from the beta phase.
  • Make the website simple and to the point so the destination is the least amount of clicks away.
