    I have been working at East Side Games full-time


    The office shifted into a new space, and we have more bathrooms! Fewer lineups, more lighting, and feeling like a fully-fledged gaming studio. There are a bunch of new people, and there has been a large focus on integrating new additions to feel like a close-knit community. It's nice to see a company working hard at maintaining their niche culture in games.


    We run out of rooms for meetings and have growing pains with furniture. But we're getting all new desks which is really exciting!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe have more Seniors join the studio so there aren't so many people reporting into one person. Or create more opportunities for internal growth.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at East Side Games (Vancouver, BC) in May-2016.


    Started with a phone interview, then a 1:1 with the Talent Acquisition employee, then in the same span an interview with the team I'd be working with. After that I received another interview to meet with their Office Culture Manager and one of their Founders so they could determine if I was a culture fit. The same day I was contacted with a Job Offer.
