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.

Experienced Software Engineer, HB Studios

Location: Lunenburg/Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Video games are awesome. Sport is also awesome. Combine them together with your friends and it’s a veritable cocktail of excitement, argument and one-upmanship destined to forge lifelong friendships and rather annoying arch-enemies who you would love to digitally batter just one more time.

Here at HB Studios, we’ve been creating world class videogames for 20 years with the likes of EA Sports and 2K Sports. We even have our very own number one golf game IP on PlayStation, Xbox and PC called The Golf Club. Overall, we’ve been a part of over 50 game releases.

So if you have amazing programming skills and know lots of stuff about C#, C++, JavaScript and that kind of thing, drop us a line. If you know the Unity game engine inside-out, that’s just on the nose right there so also drop us a line. We live on the east coast of Canada and we think you should, too. The friendliest people, the incredible Summers and spectacular beaches, the vibe and energy of our province’s university city… and to top it all off – the hole-in-one, the three pointer, the knock-out blow – we’re super nice human beings, all 75 of us.

We offer competitive salaries, a couple of free games every year, matching pension contributions, a healthcare package, company events, profit share and lots of other fruity goodness. We even have our own 250-seat theatre for those family and friends’ movie nights. So come join the gang, we’re the biggest and best indie developer in Atlantic Canada!
