We are currently looking for Software Engineers to fill positions at the company in different areas of expertise (for example: graphics, infrastructure, game and console programming).

MMO development is challenging and rewarding because of the range of skills required to deliver a quality experience to the players.  While game play is certainly a big piece of what we do, a talented programmer need not have game industry experience to find a home at Cryptic.

  • Collaborating with other talented programmers, artists, and design teams.
  • Developing the engine that drives our games, including AI, graphics, physics, animation, and audio.
  • Putting the “massive” in MMO by working on databases, networking, transactions, chat, and other systems that scale to handle tens of thousands of users.
  • Fashioning user interfaces, tuning controls, and designing unique game play systems that give each game its own feel.
  • Creating the development tools to handle the ever-changing demands of producing online games.

What we need to see:

  • The ability to communicate clearly and concisely
  • Extremely proficient in C programming and debugging
  • A passion for delivering great work

What we’d like to see:

  • In-depth knowledge of and experience with games
  • 4 year degree required or equivalent experience in similar field
