I have been working at Cryptic Studios full-timePros
The environment favors autistic people who own dogs. It's quiet, socializing seems to all MTG games or Netrunner games, people would rather work than wander around the office and chat. The games are not designed as clickbait or to maximize profits. The goal, as told to the employees, is to make a good game that the fans want to support by buying things, rather than a scam to siphon money from people. This is an important point.Cons
Compensation seems to be slightly low.RecommendsPositive Outlook

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Cryptic Studios.Interview Details
Had a phone interview. HR director who interviewed me was a really nice guy and easy to talk to. Asked me about my experience in game development and general questions.
Some key questions I remember were:
-What was one of your proudest gaming moments?
-Why do you want to work for Cryptic studios as opposed to another AAA company?
-What makes you a better candidate than others?
The HR director takes notes during the phone interview and passes them on to a QA lead who then decides if you are a good fit. If you are, you go in for a QA knowledge test. Having professional experience in QA is important, otherwise it will be very difficult to get a job in QA here.Interview Questions
