The Games Industry UX List

I’m hiring! Join me in working on on a new game at Carbine Studios

This is a living list of game industry companies that I know to hire UX Professionals. They are listed in no particular order and are based all over the world. I’m super busy on a new game project, so the chances of me updating this list from here on out are very low.
