The Gamasutra Job Board is the most diverse, active and established board of its kind for the video game industry!

Here is just one of the many, many positions being advertised right now.

Software Engineer, Cryptic Studios

Location: Los Gatos, CA

Cryptic Studios is currently seeking full-time Programmers. We are seeking sharp, motivated people to join our team and work on Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) games.

Located in Northern California in Los Gatos, we offer the fun, focused, and casual atmosphere of a small developer. We actively balance our work with the personal lives of our employees. At Cryptic, we look for people who have passion for what they do and work well in teams to create and operate fun and challenging online games.

Every day you could be

Collaborating with other talented programmers, artists, and design teams.
Developing the engine that drives our games, including AI, graphics, physics, animation, and audio.
Putting the “massive” in MMO by working on databases, networking, transactions, chat, and other systems that scale to handle tens of thousands of users.
Creating the development tools to handle the ever-changing demands of producing online games.
Fashioning user interfaces, tuning controls, and designing unique game play systems that give each game its own feel.

MMO development is challenging and rewarding because of the range of skills required to deliver a quality experience to the players. While game play is certainly a big piece of what we do, talented programmers need not have game industry experience to find a home at Cryptic.

What we need to see

The ability to communicate clearly and concisely.
Extremely proficient in C programming and debugging.
A passion for delivering great work.

What we’d like to see

In-depth knowledge of and experience with games.
4-year degree required (or equivalent experience in relevant field.)
Must be eligible to work in the United States.

Interested? Get started here. Are you a recruiter looking for talent? Post jobs here.
