Double Helix Games is a game studio with a history that stretches back almost 20 years. The studio formed officially when Shiny Entertainment, creator of classic games like Earthworm Jim, Sacrifice, MDK and Enter the Matrix, merged with The Collective, Inc., makers of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Most recently Double Helix Games launched latest generation games Killer Instinct and Strider. In 2014 Double Helix Games announced that it had been acquired by Amazon.
Fueling the creativity, design, and technical excellence that drives all our games, Double Helix Games is home to over 60 developers in sunny Orange County, California. We are underway on fantastic new games, with an awesome work environment, frequent studio events, terrific benefits, and a spirit of creativity in everything we do.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Double Helix Games (Irvine, CA) in October 2010.
I have applied this company at online. then Someone in HR called me one week later. We made an appointment phone interview next day. Supervisor asked me about how to create normal map, HOw much know about this company., and so on... actually I didn't know this company, so interview was pretty normal, and result is bad. They told me you will get a test soon, but they never called me back again. That's it.
Let us know if we're missing any workplace or industry recognition –
