At Glu, we believe in advancing the capabilities of everyone we work with. We are a collaborative team that takes great pride in our work, but also has fun throughout the process. We love what we do and it shows in our products and the output of our work! We’ve found that those with these passions and skills have been setup for success with our team:

  • Minimum 5 years game industry experience, and multiple shipped titles
  • Serious passion for games and able to break down and articulate their strengths and weaknesses

  • Ability to receive and offer constructive feedback to iterate and improve upon content and features

  • Deep understanding of role playing game mechanics within mobile or other free-to-play spaces

  • Experience with scripting languages (e.g. Lua, Python, TypeScript)

  • Experience with spreadsheet software (e.g. Excel, Google Sheets)

  • Self-starter who is driven and strives for both excellence and efficiency

You will delight us if you have experience in the following:

  • Computer Science degree or equivalent professional (or hobbyist) experience

  • Experience with collectible card games (e.g. Magic the Gathering, Hearthstone, Pokemon, etc.)

  • Experience with multiplayer online battle arena games (e.g. League of Legends, Dota2, Arena of Valor, etc.)

  • Experience with massively multiplayer online games (e.g. World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy XIV, etc.)

If all of this sounds exciting to you, then we think you might be someone who would succeed here on the team! If this sounds like the next chapter in the story of your career, we would love for you to apply so we can discuss your valuable skills and how we can benefit from each other!
