Come join us! We’re looking for world-class game makers and bright new talent – people who want to create beloved games and do the most satisfying work of their careers.

Here are the kinds of people we love working with: people with new ideas; people smarter than us, who can help us learn new tricks and also grow themselves; people who love both games and the technology inside them; people who have an entrepreneurial spirit; people who enjoy tackling difficult problems and doing things that have never been done before.

Does that sound like you?


We love games.

We were the original team behind Words With Friends and the With Friends series, but before that we had our hand in Age of EmpiresHalo Wars and Starcraft, to name a few. We’re also voracious consumers of all sorts of games, from hardcore PC games to board games and everything in between.

We’re redefining gaming for the next generation.

We are inspired by the promise of disruptive technologies like virtual reality and are actively developing games that take full advantage of these new mediums. We are building worlds that will come alive for our players in ways that were previously only possible in dreams.

We go against the grain where it counts.

We actively work against crunch. We highly value work-life balance and encourage our staff to have a life outside the studio. We also offer top pay and industry leading benefits, including zero out-of-pocket insurance plan, a 401k, and paid continuing education.


Even though we do not have any open roles right now, feel free to submit an application and we’ll reach out if / when we have a fit for you. We try our best to review all relevant applications. Candidates must be eligible for full-time work in the USA. We are unable to sponsor visas at this time.
