August 30 · Issue #39 · View online

Get ahead in your game industry job search. We follow all sorts of news and social sources to bring you leads and updates you might have missed.

The job scanner continues to do its thing - it’s now scanning over 240 studios in 23 cities to find fresh job links every day. I’m starting to notice some themes as I wake up and check these new links each day, so in this issue I’ve highlighted a few interesting things that have stood out to me in the past few weeks.
As always, good luck on your job hunt!

Diversity Roles
It is an encouraging sign that many studios, large and small, seem to be really committed to walking the walk when it comes to building companies made up of diverse teams. I’ve spotted several new roles focused on “diversity, equity, and inclusion”, here are a few:
  • Niantic has a Diversity and Inclusion team, and they’re hiring for a new role on that team
  • EA is looking for a Senior Diversity & Inclusion Consultant
  • Jam City has a role for Manager, Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity
  • Activision is also looking for a Director, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Not to be outdone, Zynga has a role for Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer
  • And Wizards of the Coast is looking for their own Senior Manager of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
‘Tis the season for new internships! I’ve spotted several in the past few weeks scattered across many different studios and cities. Here are a few of the ones I’ve seen:
  • Sony Interactive has a few dozen new internships listed in various locations across all disciplines
  • Epic Games has new art, development, design and other internships available
  • Rooster Teeth has a few community/social internships available
  • Twitch is looking for engineering interns
Remote Roles
It’s no surprise that more and more studios are offering remote roles. Here are a few that stood out, I’ll keep my eyes peeled for more!
  • PlayQ has remote options available for a few of their roles
  • Proletariat continues their hiring spree, and several of their jobs are tagged with “Allows Remote”
  • East Side Games is looking for remote employees (in Canada) for several roles
  • Iron Galaxy has many roles that offer remote, at least until a post-COVID world
