*How we're handling COVID-19*

We are still hiring, so we’ve adapted our process to keep people safe.  All positions at DoubleDown are subject to interviewing & onboarding virtually/remotely.  In June 2022, we transitioned into a hybrid environment based out of our Seattle, WA studio, where teams are expected to collaborate in the office for a minimum of 1 day per week.  In person collaboration is an important part of making awesome gaming experiences so when it is safe, we look forward to working together both virtually and in person!
