How to Get Hired
We asked Epic Games, Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Epic Games employees are smart, talented, and passionate. If you are those three things, and have relevant experience, you’re likely to be a great fit here. There isn’t one way to show that you have these attributes, as they can manifest themselves differently in every individual. Smart typically equates to the ability to solve complex problems as they relate to your field of expertise. Talented means you are at the top of your game. Passion means that there is something that gets you out of bed every morning and drives you to continue to innovate in your area of expertise. Successful employees at Epic demonstrate all three.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We love when people show us what they can do by building things. Epic is known for the Unreal Engine, a game engine technology that is available to everyone for free. We love when people show us their skills and passion by using that technology to create something. You can do almost anything with those tools and you’ll be using them every day here, so showing us how you can maximize their potential speaks loads to passion, motivation, and skill!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are looking for talented folks for all of our teams, but most specifically our game, technology and publishing teams. Our game teams are always looking for talented programmers, artists, designers, and producers to help with the development of our games, including Paragon and Fortnite. Our technology teams are looking for engineers across multiple specialties, including rendering, tools, web, backend and systems, and data engineers. These individuals focus on developing and iterating on the Unreal Engine to allow us and our partners to bring creations to life, whether it’s games, visualizations, or beyond. The publishing teams are looking to grow our User Experience, Analytics, Marketing, and Creative Service practices to ensure we are operating our games to their maximum potential.
