Hardsuit Labs    Seattle, WA
Job Description

About Us

Hardsuit Labs, located in Seattle, was founded in 2015 with the same goal as every other game development studio that has ever existed – to make great games. What sets us apart is the way we make that happen:

It s all about our people.

It takes talented, driven people to make great games. Here at the Lab, we work hard to create and to maintain an environment that not only attracts those people and keeps them here, but that allows them to thrive and to do what they do best – to make great games. It s not always as easy as it sounds, but it really is that simple.

We might as well admit it: we re obsessive about our people and our culture here at the Lab. We believe in hiring a mix of seasoned industry veterans and talented young upstarts, but talent and shipped titles aren t enough; we re looking for people who bring a variety of experiences and perspectives – people who we can spend time with, and people who can navigate the unpredictable waters of modern game development as a tight-knit group.

We believe in low turnover, and take steps to guard against the staff-up and lay-off cycle that is so common in this industry. When we hire, we hire for the long term, and we re unapologetically picky about it.
