Objective Driveyards leadership recruitment

Recommended Posts


Objective Driveyards [ODY] has a particular management structure that forsees to regularly replace members in management and leadership roles to keep up a quality standard, lessen stress on individuals selected for these roles and ensure the corresponding activites to be handled sufficiently and regularly developed further. In an evolving world and community like Dual Universe, you need to stay dynamic and adapt to situations at hand.
Due to the restrictions with real life and the natural process of varying interest and motivation in a single game for most players, the vast majority of leadership roles in ODY are temporary.

The active line-up of ODY members can't always fill these management roles to a satisfactory degree.  For this reason, we are opening the positions in question up to people from outside our corporate-state. This means that you can be recruited into ODY and put into a leadership position right away - for many people, exactly what they want and for us an opportunity to expand our roster of talented and dedicated individuals. 

What you should know about Objective Driveyards



Objective Driveyards is the title for the collective that inhabits a sovereign territory simply known as "The corporate state" and thus, our structure is a unique mix of a nation and a corporation. We see ourselves as a technocratic political entity with an oligarchic leadership and a mindset focused on quality and dedication. We have high aims and are well aware of the enourmous potential it takes to reach them in DU's environment with many talented competitors. Yet ODY always aims to form the premier industry of Dual Universe.

We are a true neutral organisation with a focus on industrial and ship development, but we try to provide fun and enjoyable experiences in almost any field of Dual Universe to our members. As such, PvP in our Navy, marketing and trading, exploration and programming, architectural development and resource acquisition and training are all big parts of ODY. Where regular states finance themselves with taxation for instance, the corporate state of ODY requires different means to increase its capital as every citizen is also an employee of a branch and paid according to their accomplishments. ODY finances itself mainly by being a service provider: Everything ODY does to build up its industry, we also market to contractors and on the open market by principle.



Every branch is responsible for one major part of ODY: R&D, Industry and Military. Each of the branches are treated as individual corporations within the corporate-state and consists of four so called divisions. Every division covers one field of gameplay of Dual Universe and internal operations. It is these divisions that ODY is recruiting leadership personell for.

What requirements do we have for leadership recruitment?


What should be noted first is that ODY does not have any kind of minimum activity requirements. We are a mature community with the vast majority of members often busy with family life, jobs or other hobbies and passions. And we respect that. Nonetheless, a regular activity in ODY is a basic requirement to fulfill your new duties sufficiently.

Unlike regular members, multi-organization membership is only allowed in (rare) exceptions for members in leadership positions.

If you are interested in a leadership position, you will need to be recruited into the corresponding branch first. This means next to a written application, we will also have a voice interview to get an impression of you and how well you fit in ODY as well as the position you are applying for. The two branch leaders decide whether to approve or reject you.

Applying for a position means dedicating yourself towards it. It will be your main focus, supported by the members of your division and the branch leaders. But things in life change, and that's alright. We recruit members into leadership positions for 6 months so you should know yourself if you want to make that commitment. Naturally, you can always step down should there be an unforseen change for you or the motivation absolutely leaves you. And just as much, you can also choose to go on even further after those 6 months.

Naturally, if you are applying for a position at an early stage of the game, you will also need to have access to the game.

What we offer you



You will be playing in an enjoyable environment with an active, mature and like-minded community. While we are trying to organize ourselves professionally, we do not forget what fun is and enjoyment will always be our main priority. 

Division heads are encouraged to structure their division themselves. You get to decide how to work in your job, just as it is you responsibility to organize the necessary activities as fun as possible for the other members. Every division head has administrator access to the ODY management board, our own web-hosted management application. You can create your own activities, recruit members for them and we'll create and provide the tools you need for it. It makes your work fun and easy and ensures you can cooperate perfectly with the other division heads. 




Where members are payed based on the tasks they are doing, division heads receive an in-game salary, meaning you'll earn a set but generous amount of quanta as long as you fulfill your duties. It's difficult to measure just how much you are doing for ODY, but we want to reward everybody based on merit nonetheless. Your salary stacks with a certain value that increases based on your activity, so the more you do, the higher your salary will be permanently so you can finance your in-game hobbies and personal projects. But there's more reward systems in ODY.
