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.

Do you love mentoring, training, and helping other Tech Artists grow in their career and craft? Are you a Technical Artist with experience in materials, shaders, and lighting? Do you want to collaborate with world class artists, engineers, designers, and other technical artists to help solve some of our most complex problems? Do you get excited about bringing your unique and diverse experiences to the table and helping other people in a variety of ways? Oh, and do you like fireworks and things that go boom? Then let’s talk!

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!
