Job Description

At Judge Academy, we believe gaming is important. Games change lives. Games connect people. Games build friendships. And, most importantly, games build communities.

A community can grow and evolve into something special for everyone who’s a part of it. But, just like a gaming community needs a caring and thoughtful leader (such as a JA Judge) to help it grow, Judge Academy needs someone to champion the needs of our most CR-oriented judges, our Rules Wizards.  Here’s where you come in!

If you ask a “Rules Wizard” what people generally want out of an event, they are likely to respond with something like, “Everyone wants to learn from this event”. They are motivated by a desire to master Magic’s complexity and share that love of rules with other judges. As the MTG Rules Wizard Champion, you’ll focus on the creation of content and special programming for those judges.


  • Drive the vision for community and member engagement for among Rules Wizard Judges
  • Follow processes and style guides, to create new content geared towards game rules
  • Build relationships with external content creators and speakers to ensure production and event deadlines are met and new content is released on a regular basis
  • Create update quizzes and maintenance exams focused on rules changes and new cards
  • Attend weekly stand-up meetings for the Community Team, as well as a weekly 1-on-1 with our Program Manager
  • Handle general customer service, escalating issues when necessary
  • Brainstorm ideas for interesting/clever gear and swag (“I learned layers so you don’t have to”)


  • JA MTG Certification
  • Experience meeting deadlines and working in a fast-paced and dynamic environment
  • Experience in content creation and following production schedules
  • Strong empathy for rules-focused judges and their different motivations, needs, and desires
  • Ability to self-manage and ask for help and support when needed
