We are ArenaNet, a studio making online worlds infused with innovation, handcrafted excellence, and creative passion. Our passion is broadly shared; gamers made Guild Wars 2 the fastest selling MMO game in the West with more than 3 million copies sold in its first 9 months, and players and press have consistently called it one of the best MMOs of all time.

Our studio is built on foundations of excellence with a focus on community. We constantly innovate, unlocking the true potential of online role-playing with game-changing titles like Guild Wars 2 and beyond. The status quo is not good enough for our dedicated worldwide community of players, which is why we question the de facto industry conventions and demand more from ourselves as developers.


We are looking for a talented Senior Game Engineer with a broad range of interests in building rich, immersive online worlds. Are you intrigued by the search for ways to use technology to enable more compelling experiences? Do you like the idea of helping to create the toolkit used by world-class game designers and storytellers? If you’re interested in pushing the boundaries of how games are made and played, we would love to hear from you!


The Engineering team at ArenaNet thrives on a wide array of perspectives, experiences, and interests. We know that the best creations come from healthy and friendly teams. Our work is woven together with the efforts of other disciplines and crafts within game development. We seek out voices and ideas that might be new to us. We are always on the lookout for ways to help each other, both within the Engineering team, and throughout the studio as a whole.


You’ll need to be very comfortable in C++, and able to rapidly try ideas to see what works best, based on feedback from other veteran engineers and seasoned game designers. Additionally, we will be asking you to be the voice of programming expertise to guide explorations and research into possible new approaches and ideas. It will be essential for you to work closely alongside creative designers, writers, programmers, and artists to bring compelling game mechanics and environments to life. ArenaNet is committed to celebrating and nurturing our staff, along with our wide variety of perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, and ideas, so you'll need to be willing to engage and collaborate with a range of other team members within the studio, as well as uphold our collective values.
