Description

At Visual Concepts, we believe great games are made by diverse and empowered teams with a shared passion for play. As one of the world’s top game development studios, we have shipped over 100 multi-sku titles to critical acclaim and commercial success. Our teams are independent and entrepreneurial. Our studios in Agoura Hills, Novato, Orange County, Budapest, Shanghai, and Seoul are committed to artistry and technical innovation, offering top candidates the opportunity to learn and grow with some of the smartest and most creative minds in the industry.

Do you love the elegance of beautifully implemented systems? Do you have natural instincts for what’s important vs. what’s urgent?

If so, we have a role that might interest you!

  • Meet with development leads; identify and priorities areas of focus to maximize your impact
  • Quickly and accurately handle requests from other departments as needed
  • Monitor build status on a daily basis and flag blocking issues
