Founded in 2002, we serve millions of players every day and are dedicated to providing players with the opportunity to play, connect, compete and discover anywhere and on any device. We are dedicated to enhancing life through exceptional play.

Summary and Mission

For the Self Aware Games Tools Engineering Team, our customers are our coworkers, and our mission is to keep them happy and productive.

  • Opinionated – you have no patience for bad UX because you’ve seen the productivity gains from good UX
  • Curious – you’re dying to try out that new browser API that just landed in Chrome this week
  • Eager – you design, you plan, you build, you demo, you test … enough already! Let’s ship!
