Epic Venture Games is a fast-paced production team that drives a large volume of content for Big Fish. Our talented designers and producers work with dozens of developers from concept to release, shaping entertaining and high-quality games. Members of the Epic Venture team are encouraged to grow and challenge themselves as individuals, while celebrating big successes as a team. We are passionate about quality, we are passionate about consistency, and we are passionate about fun!

Epic Venture is an integrated part of the Big Fish community (AKA “The Pond”). Located at the Seattle Headquarters in Lower Queen Anne, our offices are conveniently located on the beautiful Puget Sound, just outside the hustle-and-bustle of Downtown. We’re a short walk from great Seattle attractions like Seattle Center, the Olympic Sculpture Garden, shops and restaurants at the pier, and a variety of food truck hot-spots. Need commuting options? We’re right along multiple bus routes for the transit-takers, the Elliott Bay Trail for cyclists, and have a secure on-site garage for four-wheeled commuters. Our facilities are built around work and play, with state of the art tools and software, and amenities that make work fun! Take a break in one of our game rooms, refresh yourself with a complimentary snack or beverage, or get out for some fresh air on one of our waterside balconies.

Join us for an Epic Adventure you’ll never forget!
