Nexon M – Why Work For Us?


NEXON M is a mobile game publisher based in Emeryville. Founded in 2013, NEXON M focuses on free-to-play games for mobile and counts some of the world’s best developers as its partners, including Big Huge Games, maker of the top-grossing game DomiNations; Shiver Entertainment and Respawn Entertainment.

NEXON M’s focus on free-to-play games for mobile can be traced to our roots as a subsidiary of NEXON Corp. As Korea’s largest game company, NEXON is known for having created the first free-to-play games in the early 2000′s and has multiple games which recently passed their 10-year anniversaries of live operation.

Similarly, NEXON M’s goal is to support the world’s best mobile developers in making unique and fun games that can entertain players for a decade. We believe in play-to-win, not pay-to-win. With an internationally diverse team of 40 with deep experience in free-to-play game production, marketing, and live operations, NEXON M takes pride in letting developers focus on what they do best, while taking care of everything else. With producers, engineers, artists, marketing professionals, and data analysts – among others – if you are a mobile developer with a great game, we’d love to help and we’d love to hear from you! 

Nexon M acquired Big Huge Games in 2016. Together, we're making history.

At NEXON M, we’re always looking for incredible talent - both new to mobile and experienced veterans - that want to join us on our exciting journey. We don’t just want to fill positions; we want to partner with people. We’re very proud to have a team that’s as diverse as our games, and we are strongly committed to creating a working environment that allows all of our employees to flourish and grow. If you’re as passionate about mobile gaming as we are, join us!

NEXON M is hiring! Our studio is located in Emeryville—the Emery-Go-Round stops right outside. A casual, friendly work environment, comprehensive benefits package, competitive salary, and a great opportunity for career growth and development are all part of what makes Nexon M a great place to work.

Working in Emeryville

Emeryville is a small but changing city, which reflects NEXON M as we’re a young company, growing and changing the mobile game industry. We are located in the East Bay, between Berkeley and Oakland. Our studio is situated very close to the 80 and 580 freeways. Amtrak Station is next to our building. We’re also just a 16 min. BART ride away from the city, which connects to the Emery Go Round free-shuttle that drops you off mere feet away from our studio. The weather on this side of the bay is a little warmer and sunnier, which is great when taking a break in the park next door. We shoot hoops, throw frisbees around, and play pick-up games of soccer. We like to support our local businesses, restaurants and bars. We have the Public Market just walking distance, and Bay Street for shopping and eating!

    I worked at Nexon M full-time

    Pros

    - one of the strongest user acquisition teams in the mobile gaming space, both in depth of knowledge/experience, media buying strategy, and size

    - UA team is very close-knit with great leadership

    - every UA member gets to work on every game that comes through, no siloing

    - lots of high quality games to work on - portfolio is diverse with new projects constantly being added to the pipeline (great place to be if you're a gamer)

    - great work-life balance

    Cons

    - expect to be kept busy with constant game launches and new projects

    - UA team is larger than most, so workload can be diffused at time

    - as with the nature of the game industry, expect project timelines to shift and games to be added/dropped on short notice

    Advice to Management

    - foster company culture by communicating clear mission, vision, and values, especially in times of changing leadership

    - offer stock options
