Job Seeking FAQs

We get asked a lot of questions about how to break into the games industry. Here's a few of the more frequently asked questions as well a few things to consider when applying to Gearbox Software.

"How do I get a job at Gearbox?"

Do you see several job posting that you might be interested in or skilled at? Apply for all of the jobs you might qualify for. And don't be shy -- tell us what you really enjoy doing or which job listing you think would be the most interesting to you.

Always submit a portfolio or work samples with your application. And make sure that your website works, is easy to read, and we can actually see your work samples and have the ability to zoom in.

Keep your portfolio current. Remove samples that are questionable or really old. Let us see your best work first.

If we send you a test, make sure you put forth an effort and show us the passion we know you have.

The application process can be lengthy. It's okay to follow up, but please don't call or email every day.

If you are called for an interview be prepared to spend the entire day in an interview. It may not take that long but it's better to be prepared and well rested in case it does.

"Do you have any Internship opportunities?"

All job opportunities, including internships, will be posted on this jobs page. If you don't see any internships or COGS positions then we are not currently hiring for those positions.

"How do I get into the Games Industry?"

You may want to consider one of the many schools that now offer degrees in gaming. Here are a few of the local schools where we have found great talent: SMU Guildhall, University of Texas Dallas, Art Institute of Dallas

Play test for studios (if you are local to the Dallas area, Gearbox is always looking for Play Testers)

Networking through Conferences/seminars, IGDA, LinkedIn, Forums, etc.

Living in Frisco, Texas

In September 2009, Forbes Magazine designated the Dallas-Fort Worth area as the top place to earn a living in the United States. Dallas has a financial advantage for residents with its low cost of living (one of the lowest in the United States) and the state of Texas is one of the few states in the US that does not charge a state income tax. Gearbox Software is located in Frisco, TX just a short drive north of Dallas.

Frisco offers an abundance of fun for kids of all ages in a safe, affordable and unique setting. Whether you enjoy incredible shopping & dining, are a huge sports fan, or if arts and culture is your passion, Frisco has plenty to offer. For a day of pampering and relaxation, try one of the city's sixteen day spas.

Frisco is a great place to stay, with a host of award winning hotels, from upscale to featured service, awaiting you. Enjoy minor league baseball, professional soccer and arena football, and amateur hockey.

If you're searching for the kind of shopping that brings excitement, warms your heart, and gets the job done, all while being fun, visit the Stonebriar Centre in Frisco! Packed with specialty shops, great restaurants, movie theaters and much more, Frisco has one of the premiere shopping malls in the Southwest, all surrounded by even more shopping.

A quick drive around Frisco and you suddenly realize you are surrounded by bronze cattle drives depicting the Shawnee Trail, artwork from around the world in Hall Office Park, and a one-of-a-kind Texas Sculpture Garden.

Entertainment abounds in the Dallas area! Home to 4 major sports teams including the Dallas Cowboys (NFL), Dallas Stars (NHL), Dallas Mavericks (NBA), and Texas Rangers (MLB), sports fans will never have trouble finding a great game. Food and nightlife are plentiful, with enough dining and social hotspots to suit any taste in Lower Greenville, the West End, Deep Ellum, Uptown, Addison, and the West Village. Concerts and shows hardly ever pass Dallas by and are hosted in numerous venues like the American Airlines Center, Cowboys Stadium, Nokia Theatre, and The House of Blues. Dallas is also home to a large, thriving arts district - visit the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the AT&T Performing Arts Center for proof! Don't forget the Dallas Zoo and the State Fair of Texas - Dallas has tons of great family-friendly activities!
