At Big Fish, play inspires everything we do: from bringing delight to millions of players around the world through exceptional games, building best workplace environments, to attracting world-class talent. We challenge ourselves to be creative and proactive in the way we think, how we collaborate and explore, and how we approach problem solving—everything is a chance to find creative solutions that make an impact. To us, the fun is in working together to build something bigger than ourselves and to be a part of making something great. At Big Fish, you’re not a small piece of something big, you’re a big part of something special. Sound exciting? We think so. Come play on our team.
We’re All In This Together
We’re an intentional mix of all kinds of people, talents and disciplines, brought together by our shared passion for games and our love for building new ideas.
We’re active in our offices, with dozens of social clubs—from hot sauce to oil painting—employee events and socials, ping pong tournaments and board game nights.
We’re active out in the world and within our communities, connecting with the things we’re passionate about to bring them all together to work hard and to "play inspired.”
Our enthusiasm for what we do is amplified by our commitment to doing it well and to making the best games that we can, together.
Benefits with Benefits.
At Big Fish, we understand that there’s more to a great job than just great work. There are a lot of little things in a day that help people feel inspired, comfortable and appreciated. Our competitive benefits package and healthy work life balance complement our beautiful offices and inter-office perks.
Our main headquarters is located on the waterfront in historic downtown Seattle and boasts panoramic views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Between meetings, you can grab a snack, shoot some pool, level up in the rotating arcade or get in a workout or yoga class in our private rooftop gym. We’re just minutes from buses, trains, and ferries, and blocks from sports stadiums, the famous Seattle Public Market, museums, shopping, and hundreds of restaurants—there’s no shortage of excursions and culture to be experienced just steps away from the office.
In Oakland, our beautiful light-filled workspace is located in a vibrant Uptown location near Lake Merritt and the 19th Street BART station. Beyond our competitive compensation package, we celebrate our employees with a variety of perks like free professional massage, a quiet room, a computer stipend, a pool table, arcade, and a fully stocked pantry.
Whether you work from our offices in Seattle or Oakland, from the big things to the little things, we’ve got a lot to offer.
Come Be a Big Part of Something Special.
It takes all kinds of people and talent to create best-in-class games and we’re building the best teams that we can in every field.
Whether you’re an accountant, a producer, a developer, a character designer or a copywriter, everyone here is an essential part of what we do. Big Fish is committed to growing talent, and we encourage people to look for new ways to apply themselves to maximize their impact and bring their ideas to new places.
We need people who will challenge themselves, and us, to think differently about what’s possible—smart, creative, collaborative people who love games and want to push themselves and everything we make into exciting new territory.
If this sounds like your kind of place, then you’re our kind of person.
I have been working at Big Fish Games full-time (More than 10 years)
There's a renewed energy and focus at Big Fish, genuinely believe there are good (if not great) times ahead. Strong and motivated leadership and a supportive parent company. Spectacular new office space (2018), in an awesome downtown location.
It is a hit driven business, need to be tenacious and at the same time patient.
Advice to Management
All roads lead to successful game launches - focus on likely successes.
I applied online. I interviewed at Big Fish Games (Seattle, WA) in February 2020.
Phone Screen - Very standard. Discussed the role, asked questions back and forth talking about experience, how the role would measure success. etc. In the end they did not want to move forward with me for an onsite interview, and I have since reached out asking for advice on what would have helped them consider meeting me in person. No answer as if yet.
