Insomniac Recruitment Videos

Bryan Intihar's Avatar + Posted by Bryan Intihar on Mar 31, 2009 // Community Manager, Insomniac Games

A fully-stocked kitchen, on-site massage therapist, free cruise to the Bahamas—apparently, those kinds of employee perks weren’t enough for Chris Stathis, the star of last year’s ”Pinballz” video, to stick around at Insomniac Games. But even though Chris has moved on, he’s still our friend. In fact, we decided to check in with him at his new gig, MegaCorp, to see how it compared to his time here.

So if you’re like Chris’ new…err, old MegaCorp coworker and want to join Insomniac Games, head to the careers section of our website. We have a number of positions available in both our Burbank and North Carolina studio.

Good videos, glad to see you guys growing during the economy. I went to apply with you guys before I got my current job in NC but it didn’t appear there were any jobs along my line of work(web/graphic designer) at the time.

I think I sent on in anyway…but at any rate great videos. Maybe I’ll break into the game industry later with more experience :)

Needing a animator for a AAA title with great characters is kind of a give away isn’t it, Bryan ? :)

Need to make sure to do some community stuff in Raleigh like Burbank receives. There’s a great gaming community here.

I’m sure you could apply for QA down the road unless it’s outsourced.

I need a place to put my foot into the door I’m currently scripting my game with my friend who’s an art designer, and I just entered early programming. Hey quick question, I’m 2 years into college and I would like to know when I graduate will I be able to instantly apply for Insomniac. Or is there more that you guys require other than an almost complete game and a degree in Computer web development and programming?

Thanks

I’m a Insomniac fanboy(just look at my name), but can you please stop posting about the job opportunities and benefits at Insomniac.

You made one post about it and that’s enough; leave that stuff on your main website.

+ NCtwin on March 31st, 2009 at 1:00 pm said:

Matter of fact, if anyone knows anywhere that’s hiring in the LA area, please let me know. I’ve been out here for two months turning in resumes and filling out apps with no result. I keep revising my resume and still nothing…ok enough begging. Time to get out and continue the search.

I would love to join Insomniac, it is my dream to work there but I am only a sophomore in high school. Just keep an intern spot open until I’m in college. Thanks. I love you guys.

P.S. I am on the east coast so I’ll probably go for the North Carolina branch.


36

+ Insomnia999 on March 31st, 2009 at 1:14 pm said:

Great videos though and I would definitely love to work there.

I guess this is a good way to get a large audience interested, thus you guys can get the best qualified workers.

@#28

Good luck man. I was job searching for a long time too, took me 6 months of steadily putting out applications every day until I got a few nibbles and ended up with a pretty decent job.

Just be persistent, call them for a follow up if they don’t specify not to. (Just remembered what he didn’t do with his Insomniac resume).

In this economy they can hire experienced people for less so new guys are having a harder time…keep at it and someone will take notice :)

Do you ever have any writer or PM slots that open up? The categories on the web site didn’t seem to indicate it, so I figured I’d ask here.

+ CrimsonFox13 on March 31st, 2009 at 1:52 pm said:

Haha, this looks like a great place to work…
Hopefully, if I ever get involved in game development, you’ll still be hiring! It’ll be a few years at least, though…

I love the way a gaming company is advertising like this to get new employers XD.

although with all the fancy stuff going on… how is working for insomniac when the release date is coming closer and the stress is building up.
