Infinity Ward – Why Work For Us?



undefinedABOUT INFINITY WARD

Founded in 2002, Infinity Ward is the original studio behind the Call of Duty franchise.


The titles developed by Infinity Ward have won over 200 "Game of the Year" awards and 100 "Editor's Choice" awards, among many other industry accolades.


In 2007, the studio released Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, a revolutionary title that set the bar for the modern first-person shooter.


Our latest releases, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, broke records with the fastest revenue generating launches of any entertainment product.


In 2014, Infinity Ward merged with Neversoft, bringing together two talented and accomplished groups under one roof, with the goal of creating the best games possible.


Infinity Ward is located in Woodland Hills, California, just outside of Los Angeles.


A critically-acclaimed studio, Infinity Ward is proud to have one of the most passionate and accomplished development teams in the industry.


We love to have as much fun as the games we create, and it shows in our relaxed, yet diligent workplace environment.

    I worked at Infinity Ward full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic environment, highly competitive salary and benefits. Incredibly talented and passionate group of people in the industry!
    Amazing project to work on with some of the minds that invented the most popular franchise in the entertainment history: Call of Duty! Fun work place with lots of amenities, parties and outdoor activities organization. Great technology to work with and ability to contribute to.

    Incredible sense of 'family' within everybody in the company from developers to high management. It's a company that believe in actions and not in mere words and talents will always be rewarded anytime it deserve. Great sense of justice and everybody share a strong vision and knowledge.

    Cons

    Long hours are needed during the last period but no surprise when you are working for such a big and well know franchise!

    Advice to Management

    You are just amazing, best managers in the industry!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Infinity Ward.

    Interview

    The entire process took around 1.5 months and felt like a huge drag. I was given an emailed test to do. I completed it in about 4 days, and after that, waited 2+ more weeks, went through another round of interview, then complete silence for 3 weeks. I sent them a polite follow up email every week, and were completely ignored. As an applicant that took out the time to do a test for them and was weeks into the interview process, one would appreciate some kind of response, even something as simple as, "We'll have the result in 3 weeks". But there was nothing. It was like an eternal wait.
    It was eventually after 3 weeks that I received a short email that the position has been filled. Despite the fact that it was a rejection to the job of my dreams, that short email was actually a huge relief that there will be no more waiting.
