NCSOFT – Why Work With Us?


undefined

At NCSOFT we are dedicated to enriching our players' lives, and the world itself, with engaging and fun gaming experiences. In Asia, NCSOFT is already known as one of the top gaming and online companies in the region – our goal, over these next few years, is to establish and deserve the same reputation here in the West.

Our focus will remain on our players and on creating high-quality, fun, persistent, online gaming experiences for them to enjoy across a variety of platforms and in a variety of ways.

We are also heavily focused on our teams and people, on creating an environment where everyone can be excited to work each day and where we can push boundaries and innovate.  

Looking ahead, I’m optimistic about the impact games will have outside of the virtual world. Today, games engage users and teach concepts in ways that no other medium can parallel. I believe this will accelerate as we continue to see improvements in technology and delivery methods across existing gaming platforms and new areas such as virtual reality and artificial intelligence, areas in which we as a company are pioneering research and dedicating study.

The future of the gaming industry, NCSOFT, and NCSOFT West looks very bright and I’m excited about the coming months and years, as we explore new technologies, platforms and ideas.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NCSOFT (Aliso Viejo, CA).

    Interview

    I was really impressed with how streamlined and organized the interview process was. I spoke with the recruiter and then went for the in-person interview. This was the only in-person interview I'm ever had which had multiple copies of my resume printed, the print out version of the PDF I received ahead of time of the schedule with name and position of each person I'd be talking to, and even a printed benefits overview for me to take home. There was also the opportunity to speak with team members in other offices via teleconference.

    It was a long afternoon of interviews but they went by fast as I had the opportunity to speak with multiple team members from different groups. Everyone was very sharp and asked the right questions to gauge both experience level and cultural fit.

    In addition the company as many game companies was going through a transition, but I was really impressed with the positive outlook and realness that the team expressed.

    Overall it was a very positive experience and I think reflected highly on the company.
