The Dreamhive is Hiring

We try to spread the word about all of the jobs that get posted on GameJobHunter, but I wanted to spend a little bit of extra time on one that just went up.  It’s from a relatively new company called The Dreamhive – they’ve been around for a few years, and their hard work has brought them all sorts of … Read More

Welcome to Disney Interactive, Gameloft and Flashpoint Academy

Usually, I like to do an individual welcome post to each new company that joins the site.  Last week was a busy one, and we saw two new companies and a new school start posting.  I didn’t want to fall too far behind, so I figured I’d welcome them all at once in the form of a great big group … Read More

Welcome to Naughty Dog

If you’re not sure who Naughty Dog is, there’s a good chance that you’re probably looking at the wrong site.  They need no introduction in the gaming world, and have been behind some of the biggest franchises (Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, Uncharted) of the last 10+ years.  I was pumped to see them add 2 jobs to the site … Read More

Welcome to Blind Squirrel Digital

I noticed a few ads go up the other day from Blind Squirrel Digital (follow them on Twitter), and I knew I recognized the name.  It’s a company run by an old co-worker (Mike Neely)that specializes in animation and other design services.  It turns out they were just joined by another former co-worker (Jeremy Cooper), and they’re now starting to … Read More

GameJobHunter on Alltop

I discovered Alltop a few months back, and I’ve found myself checking it on a more regular basis just about every week.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s a project from marketing guru Guy Kawasaki.  The concept is pretty simple – it’s a content aggregator that allows you to browse articles form a variety of sources.  For me, it was … Read More

IGDA Orlando – June Meeting

If you’re in the Orlando area, come out next week to the June meeting of the Orlando IGDA chapter.  Orlando might not have the biggest game development community, but we’ve got a pretty active active presence at the monthly meetings.  It’s a nice mix of developers and students, and the meetings are always very casual.  Check out the Facebook invite … Read More

Game Industry Networking

I found this article from Dave Edery last week, and I’ve been meaning to pass it on and comment.  Dave makes some really great points, and you should read the whole post.  For me, it boils down to a few simple things – talk/listen to people, treat them with respect, and be willing to help out if you can.  That … Read More

Welcome to Harmonix

Harmonix posted their first ad today, so I wanted to welcome them to the site.  The creators of Rock Band need no introduction – hell, even my wife (the quintessential non-gamer) is starting to play bass on medium.  I exchanged e-mails with their recruiter, Kevin Fanning, today, and he says they should have more jobs to post in the near … Read More

Welcome to NCsoft

I’m a little late with this one – NCsoft has actually had ads going up since last week.  It looks like they’re hiring for just about every disicipline, at every level, at every studio!  They’ve got ads for positions at all of their studios – Carbine, Paragon, NCsoft Austin, ArenaNet and NCsoft Corporate.  That covers Seattle, Austin, the SF Bay … Read More

GJH Links

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but I finally got around to adding a Links area to the blog.  I’ve broken it into 2 sections, and I plan on continually adding to it.  The first section is for “Friends of GJH” – these are companies or people that we’ve got a close relationship with.  They’re all up … Read More
