PlatinumGames Opens New Fukuoka Office
No; we are always accepting applications for the positions listed on this page unless specifically noted otherwise.
Unfortunately, we cannot return your application materials or work samples. Please feel free to provide photocopies instead of originals of any essential or irreplaceable documents.
You will be working at our Osaka, Japan head office. Unfortunately, we do not offer positions outside of Japan.
Your duties and position will be decided by the manager of your department, based on your ability level and skills, as well as the needs of our current projects.
In addition to game development, our staff also includes positions in PR, development support, general affairs, accounting and marketing. However, we are not hiring for these positions at this time.
Initial screening typically takes about ten business days after we receive your application. We will notify you of the results of the screening by e-mail. Applicants who pass the initial screening will be invited to in-person or Skype interviews. Typically, we make final decisions within a month to a month and a half after the interview process.
Unfortunately, we do not accept repeat applications from unsuccessful programmer applicants within the same year; please apply again the following year. Artist, sound designer, composer, and game designer applicants are welcome to apply again the same year.
We would be glad to accommodate you. Please let us know when you are available for an interview.
Don’t worry – we will provide travel expenses for candidates traveling within Japan to attend interviews from more than 150 kilometers away from our Osaka office. Unfortunately, we are unable to cover travel expenses for applicants residing outside Japan. In these cases, interviews may be conducted over Skype.
We are able to provide up to 300,000 yen, paid all at once, to assist with moving expenses for applicants relocating from over 150 kilometers away from our Osaka office. Please inquire for more information. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide dormitory or housing support.
All business in our offices is conducted in Japanese, and all applicants are generally expected to have some degree of Japanese language ability. However, we are able to make exceptions for highly experienced and/or skilled applicants who are able to communicate in English. Please write the level of your Japanese and English ability on your resume.
We may be able to sponsor your application for a working visa. Please notify us of your needs if you will require visa sponsorship.
Not at all! Approximately 19% (as of June, 2021) of our staff has joined us from countries across the globe, including India, China, South Korea, the United States, Spain, UK, Denmark, Singapore, Brazil and more.
Unfortunately, we only offer full-time positions. We have no plans to offer part-time positions or long-term internship positions now or in the future.
