Location: SOMA, San Francisco - Looking for: Programmers

Posted by on

We are a small, focused, fun-loving team in SOMA, San Francisco. We have an informal and agile way of working. People often switch roles or volunteer to do something that is important to them to learn new skills or help someone else out. We have very specific company and project goals but we've found that we generally work better by "doing" over "planning".

We created a popular Half-life shooter/strategy mod called Natural Selection and have been creating all our own technology and lovingly crafting the commercial sequel for a few years now. We have a large audience of around 300,000 players, many of whom don't know about Natural Selection 2. We're now in a closed beta with over 27,000 players and need a couple killer programmers to speed our development and make the game shine.

We are a highly-creative, high-technical, tightly-knit company of 5 that knows how to have fun. We have a game that's starting to get pretty damned fun. We have customers and a massive audience that is passionate about what we do. Now we need your help to get the rest of the game done!
