On Skyrat Station, your job defines a little bit about your character and who they are akin to a class. Every job gets a different and unique set of equipment as well as access. Keep in mind that you should restrict each character to two skill sets, such as engineering and security, service and medical, or science and medical. More can be read about this in rules. Most of these are meant to be comedic in nature, rules take priority over funny meme.
