For the May term we will only be interviewing applicants who are currently located within commuting distance of Vancouver, BC. Everyone at ATA is currently working from home and we don't have a defined timeline for our return to the office. To ensure the best possible experience for students doing a co-op term at ATA we will only be hiring applicants who will not need to relocate in order to return or start their term at our studio in downtown Vancouver.


Engineers at A Thinking Ape are involved in all aspects of the products we create. You will have the ability to influence the design and development of the projects you are working on. You will be provided with challenging work to continuously improve and grow.

Most of our engineers work full-stack, with opportunities to develop specializations in Unity, Android and iOS, Python/Django, TypeScript/React, Distributed System Design, and Database Optimization. We use tools like Docker, MySQL, Redis, Kafka, BigQuery and Graphite/Grafana.

All of our co-ops are provided with the same opportunities as our full time engineers. We value a culture of meritocracy, and everything you do here will have a direct impact on our products. At the end of your term, you'll be able to install an app on your phone, and point out the cool things you made happen. You will get to work on our live games or our tools and infrastructure team and could be working on adding new features, metrics tracking, data analysis, or addressing big scalability problems.
