Who are we?

Lunar Client is one of the largest Minecraft Clients to date. Lunar has over 1.5 million monthly users, and more than 10 million downloads total. In addition to Lunar’s sheer numbers, we develop a large number of mods to improve the Minecraft Java experience for our users ranging from aesthetic changes to quality-of-life improvements, and even performance enhancements. Lunar Client also ensures compatibility with the most popular Minecraft servers by directly partnering with servers such as Hypixel, TubNet, Shotbow, and many more!

We do our best to make sure everyone is included by offering multi-OS to support Windows, macOS, and Linux users. Minecraft players should all be able to enjoy the Lunar experience regardless of the system they have access to. However, maintaining such an enthusiastic Minecraft community is an extremely difficult task. It’s thanks to all of our different staff teams at Lunar that things can keep running as smoothly as they do.

Lunar Staff Team Recruitment Process

1. Application Submission

After you have submitted your application a team manager will review it. Due to the number of applications, we get, there is no telling when you may receive a response back. Be patient!

1.1 Unsuccessful Applications

Unsuccessful applications will not receive a response. If you do not get a response within four weeks, it is safe to assume you have been denied.

An exception for this is the Translation team since we will go through the applications as we need more translators for that language. This means that you could receive a response a couple of weeks or months after you have submitted an application. If there is anything you would like to add that’s not listed in your initial application, feel free to re-submit and we will review your most recent application.

2. Interview

Successful applicants will receive a response via Discord and be invited to an interview. We may also ask for more information if we feel something was missed in the written application.

2.1 Unsuccessful Interviews

Unfortunately, if your interview does not go well, you will be denied. Unlike applications, we will contact you to inform you of our decision directly.

3. Team Integration

If your interview is successful, you will be contacted with some instructions, and begin integration into the team!

Welcome to Lunar!

4. Guidelines for the Recruitment Process

  • Do not ask staff members about the status of your application as it will greatly decrease your chances of being accepted.

  • Please be honest when answering application questions. If you are caught lying, you will be instantly denied, or demoted. You may also be banned from creating further applications.

FAQ

Can I apply for more than one staff role?

Yes, you may apply for multiple roles. It is highly recommended to only apply for one at a time to see how you fit in with the team first.

Remember, you are still expected to contribute consistently to all teams you are a part of!

My application has been denied, how can I improve?

You were most likely denied because you either lack experience or did not distinguish yourself well enough from other applicants. Feel free to re-submit an application in the future (at least 2 months after your initial application) if you think you’re ready.

When writing about yourself think about how the point you just made relates to the role you are applying for, and how it might help make you a stronger candidate.

Otherwise, gaining some more experience in the area you are interested is also a big help. Applicants with past backgrounds or knowledge in related fields have a greater chance of being accepted!

How do I become Staff or an Agent?

The Staff and Agent roles are only achievable by promotion from Chat Mod. You cannot apply for these positions directly.

If you wish to become Client Staff or an Agent, you should start by creating a Chat Mod application.

Am I allowed to ask about my application?

No, please refrain from asking any staff members about your application. It will only make your chances of being accepted worse.

I’m younger than the age requirement, can I still apply?

We set the age requirements as we feel applicants have gained enough life experience at that point to assist competently. If you do not meet the age requirement, you will be denied.

Even if you think you are “more mature for your age than others” we will not change the requirement for you.

Are these positions paid?

This post highlights strictly volunteer roles, meaning they are unpaid.
