*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.  These positions will begin as Work From Home, however with COVID restrictions slowly lifting, we will start to slowly transition into a hybrid environment based out of our Seattle, WA studio.  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!
