A down to earth attitude: You strive to be the best in your field and you welcome feedback, change, and real talk!
Passion to evolve and grow: You want to hone your craft to create a legacy while contributing to Relic’s roadmap to the future
It’s a bonus if you…

What’s in it for you?
You will become part of the SEGA family (includes Creative Assembly, Sports Interactive, and Hardlight Studio) which means you’ll have an opportunity to work on AAA games and learn a ton. We also offer top-notch benefits and perks, including an extensive extended health benefits plan, retirement savings plan, and support for any required relocation or immigration efforts. On top of that, we realize it takes world-class people to make world-class games so we offer competitive total compensation packages.
