Notes for non-US citizens
…living and working in the US
Gamebreaking Studios is an E-Verify employer and will consider candidates for this position, such as F-1 visa holders with OPT or OPT STEM-extension work authorization, who are authorized to work in the US. US work authorization is a prerequisite for candidates who intend to live and work in the US while working for us. As such, Gamebreaking Studios will not sponsor US work visas (such as H-1B visas).
…living and working outside the US
This position is open to candidates living and working in North and South America. Applicants must be fluent in English, willing to work according to US time zones (must be available 8am - 3pm Pacific Time), and have a strong, stable internet connection conducive to remote work and video calls. Outside the US, we work with an Employer of Record to hire full-time employees. This works very similar to how employees would work for a company based in their home country. Note that work authorization in the country you will work from is still required.
