We’ve got a long holiday weekend here in the States, which I’m sure many of you are using to find some new leads in your job search. There’s been a few high profile studio closures recently, with Wargaming Seattle and Raleigh’s Boss Key Productions both recently shuttering their doors. Those closures have hundreds of new people freshly looking for jobs, but it’s also led to a high volume of job leads being shared. Here are some of the most recent ones that I’ve seen from a variety of sources – if you’re looking for a job, hopefully you see something new!
Funcom is located in Durham, so right next door to Boss Key. They’re in the midst of what looks like a very successful launch for their new title, Conan Exiles. They’re also hiring. Reach out to their recruiter, Paxton Galvanek, if you’re interested in learning more.
To all my friends at @Wargaming Seattle, I’m so sorry about the Studio closure and for all those who are affected please know that @funcom in Raleigh, NC and Oslo, Norway are actively hiring for multiple roles! Take a look at some of our roles: https://t.co/hgZjVqxG5A #gamingjobs pic.twitter.com/yWXpPfiQku

Armature is located on Austin, and they’ve been helping on a little game called Fortnite recently. Want to help? They’re looking for a new Senior Gameplay Programmer.
Everyone knows who Valve is, so this is not much of a hot lead, but I included it because it seems like you don’t tend to hear a lot about Valve’s hiring efforts. Maybe that’s changing? They’ve got several roles posted right now, including several in game development roles.
