Haven't heard the news? Sheesh, we've only been saying it everywhere. If you've ever wanted to work for Telltale, now is the time, because we're hiring! A wealth of undiscovered joys await you in lovely Northern California, as you can share philosophical views on video games with your favorite Telltalers over lunch, or play Contra after hours in the meeting room.

You may even hear Mike Stemmle singing.

Think you got what it takes? Head over to our jobs site and show us whatcha got!

We are mainly looking for applicants within the U.S. but all resumes will be looked at.

    Actually, I've thought of applying for a job at Telltale a couple of times.
    It's just that I live in the Netherlands... Would Telltale fly me in?

    Oh, I'm sure it'd be awesome to work for you guys! Ironically, I'm actually looking for full time employment in the animation industry at the moment!

    But I seriously doubt I'd qualify for a job at Telltale. I expect you'd want people who have a certain amount of experience in the industry? That, and I realize that you need to be qualified to work in the U.S. to work for the company!

    Still, maybe in years to come if I gain the relevant experience (and if I become legally qualified to work in America) a job at Telltale might come up that I'd be able to go for.

    Anyway, best of luck to anyone who does apply! There are some great opportunities there!

    I unfortunately lack the resume to be taken seriously.

    YOU are not allowed within 100 feet of the building, madam.

    I'd love to have a job at Telltale!

    There's just two little problems....

    1. I live in PA.
    2. I'm 13

    Someday.

    Telltale couldn't handle my unnatural wrath of raw talent.

    Rent me a place in California and get me a Green Card and I'm over there in a snap... or maybe a few months or so.
  • edited March 2010
    There's more people with my problem!

    I don't feel that alone now...

    Damn my underageness and Australia livingness! oh well, I don't really have good programming/artistic knowledge anyhow, but I'm a good writer (I think). That doesn't help either way, coz I live in Australia and I'm only 14.
  • edited March 2010
    I think I'd rather finish my programming course first.
  • edited March 2010
    I'm applying, but when is the deadline?
  • edited March 2010
    Ha, I wish I was awesome enough to work for Telltale. But it's already been established that I'm at least 35% not awesome enough. Anyway, California's a nice enough place to visit, but I'd much rather live in Colorado.

    Don't think there is one, really. Positions get filled and then they're off the list. This is an ongoing thing I believe.

    If this year had gone better I would have thought about applying. Maybe next year...

    If I could I wouldn't apply though, my field is not games development and graphics/arts are not my forte.

    Good luck for anyone applying.
  • edited March 2010
    I applied once with a ridiculously poorly made and laughably bad resume. It was amusing to me. I imagine it's still posted somewhere in the office with a big sign that says "LOL" next to it.
  • edited March 2010
    Dang. You don't require a musician/composer. I've always loved writing music for adventure games.

    Oh well, I'm not prepared to leave Canada anyway. I'll just stay freelance.
  • edited March 2010
    I applied. I'd move to the US if needed. Doubt my style is what they're after, but I'd be willing to give it a shot.
  • edited March 2010
    I'm not a game designer as much as I'd like to be, I'm a writer/intellectual property creator, but mark my words, telltale would love my stuff, THEY SHALL MAKE MY GAME. I can't help but draw inspiration from everything telltale and lucasarts. They made me the gamer I am today.
  • edited March 2010
    Ooh, new question how do you sell your intellectual property to get developed into a game?

    Still up for extremely tedious bughunting if so desired. After all, doing just that now for a Knights of the Old Republic II mod.
    Problem also is I have no "official" experience, just a few mods, and nagging a few companies on their forums :D (although it's quite nice to see those issues fixed as a result, yay!).
  • edited March 2010
    I am actually up on working some video games, but I'd be more interested in story,producing, concept art and screenwriting, no way you need any of those 8/.

    'sides, I live in Europe, which kills any possibilities for any current activity at Tell Tales.

    If you clicked on the link you'd see they are in need of a concept artist among other things.

    Yo Yo - so to answer a few of the questions posted:

    1. What if I'm totally not a US Citizen??

    Sadly, at this time we are only considering folks who are authorized to work in the US. We aren't doing Visa sponsorships at this time, at least not for full-time gigs.

    We will occasionally break that rule and fly in some crazy-awesome Germans.

    2. What if I don't have any experience???

    Some of our positions are actually a good match for those who are a little (or a lot) light on experience.

    Tester, Cinematic Artist and Assistant Producer are all entry level gigs open to all peoples. Concept Artist is also a possibility, but only if you think you could take on Ryan in a sketching contest.

    3. Is there a deadline for any of these positions??

    Heck nein! Some of the positions, like the Tester and/or Cinematic Artist are almost always open. And even if you apply at the exact moment that I pull the posting off the website, I'm one of those resume hoarders. So I keep everything on file and revisit frequently. I can also say that I'm not the only one, and most of the people here in charge of hiring have an "Applicants" folder where they keep those golden candidates that we just don't have a spot for right now.


    In addition, if you have a creative eye, or just want to do something fun over the weekend that is Telltale related, we have a test that is pretty fun for the Cinematic Artist position. You can access it here: http://www.telltalegames.com/files/misc/Application-Cinematic_Artist.zip

    Enjoy, and if you have any additional questions I should be back to answer more, or you can reach me directly at jobs@telltalegames.com

    What the *** I just download?

    OH! AWESOME! FLASH PRACTICE!

    And I totally knew since the very beginning I have to apply to the Green Card lottery. In, like, 3 years more.

    Quick, someone look into the future and see if TellTale will still be hiring in two years after I graduate from school!
  • edited March 2010
    Applied. I hope you need unstable billionaire industrialists.
  • edited March 2010
    Well I applied, and I have no Qualms moving back to California, so..take this as...Please let me work there.

    I'll even fly out, to meet with you...okay now I'm sounding desperate, but I WILL!

    Wouldn't you like to know? Who are you? The KGB Jackal or the CIA wolf? Here's the news: Telltale isn't some sunken ship for you to plunder. Telltale is coming back to life! So goodbye, or dosvedonye, whichever you prefer.
