Who we are

Respawn Entertainment is a AAA game development studio that was founded in 2010 by former co-founders of Infinity Ward and creators of the multi-billion dollar Call of Duty and Modern Warfare franchises. We shipped Titanfall and Titanfall 2 to critical acclaim, and recently shipped a free-to-play battle royale game in the Titanfall universe, Apex: Legends. We are currently hiring for our Star Wars™ Jedi:Fallen Order, Apex: Legends, and Super Secret VR game development teams. The opportunity to create groundbreaking games with some of the best developer talent in the industry awaits our future team members.

    Pros

    - Respectful team
    - Considerate management
    - An abundance of passion
    - Lots of team building events, such as parties, sports groups, etc.
    - Transparent -- anyone could find out and learn about almost anything
    - Achievements beyond expectations are recognized and rewarded
    - They've figured out how to make live-service development pleasant and avoid many of the usual issues
    - Lots of different lunch groups -- everyone likes to make you feel like you belong
    - Lots of interdepartmental conversation -- both social and professional
    - Lots of interaction between the different Respawn game teams
    - Constant playtesting, including "Friday Night Fights" where I always had a fun time
    - Plenty of growth opportunities
    - Access to EA's massive network of developers, information, tools, etc. Want to learn how Battlefield did that cool thing? You can ask the person who did it.
    - Management is very receptive to change.

    Cons

    - Personal project policy is very restrictive.
    - Despite team sizes being relatively small, it can sometimes feel more "big stable game company" than "small exciting game company."
