Cryptic is hiring for all the usual stuff like programmers and artists, but you might be surprised at some of the things they are looking for. If you think you got what it takes to make great games, read on.
Welcome to the Cryptic Studios Careers Center. Cryptic Studios is dedicated to breaking new ground in massively multiplayer online games while still maintaining the casual, dynamic work environment that you would expect from an independent game studio. We're focused on the future at Cryptic, but we always make time for fun too. And we won't "crunch" your life away - the balance between work and family is important to us.
At Cryptic, we are more than a developer and publisher; we are a team of passionate, talented individuals who love what we do and what we are creating. We invite you to discover all that Cryptic Studios has to offer.
We're looking for the best, whether you are a proven industry veteran or a new college grad who wants to break into the business. If you want to work on cutting-edge technology and designs centered around making games easy to build and fun to play, then this is place for you. You won't be surprised to know we're looking for top-notch programmers and artists, but you might be surprised to find we're also interested in engineering, economics, linguistics and philosophy majors. And if you have experience in quality assurance, production customer service or marketing, check out the many opportunities in our publishing department.
