We Want You
A new world and a new journey await you. It is a world different from any other Blizzard has created.
If you’re a passionate game developer, and, well, a good human being, then we’d love to talk to you. We have a new AAA survival game in the works, set in a new IP for PC/Console. It’s going to be amazing, and we’d love to bring you along for the ride. Together, we’ll build something big, bold, and beautiful.
As the Lead Artist for “Points of Interests”, you will be responsible for a critical part of the game. What is a game world without Points of Interests? You’re right, it’d be kind of boring! You will own and champion all these amazing locations that the players will experience in our world. You will also be responsible for building and growing the team that will execute on crafting all of it. If you are an amazing collaborator, a great leader, and a proactive problem solver who loves to sort out challenges and growing teams, this is the role for you.
We believe our team is good. Really good. Granted, we’re obviously biased. But we also believe there are lots of developers out there who can make us even better. You could be one of those people. If you’re looking for a team where inclusion, thoughtfulness, empathy, professionalism, and collaboration are all seen as critically important, we believe our team could be a phenomenal fit for you. Join us and help craft our future!
