Our Culture

We envision a world where game developers can rely on a single extensible development platform for all development and publishing needs. Through our work, we aim to help game developers improve productivity and focus on creativity to provide the highest quality games in the market. As we aim to leverage the power of today’s computing advances and empower teams to work together to manage their games more effectively and efficiently, we aim to build and sustain a dynamic and engaging MaxPlay™ culture that allows you to do your best work, and enjoy collaboration with colleagues.

At MaxPlay™ we know we’re building the tools that game developers will rely on to bring their visions to life. Therefore, we strive to ensure that our technology is engineered for maximum performance and stability. If you’ve got the drive to be part of something built to last, you just may be MaxPlay™ material!
Good design is the process of solving the user’s problem at the right time in the right way. Our design process draws on the best practices from the game industry, enterprise software and usability testing to ensure the best possible experience for all our customers. Our Product Management team includes former lead programmers, senior game designers and producers from the game industry as well as professional UX/UI specialists with experience across many industries (museology anyone?).
Research is the foundation for both design and engineering. Our head of product strategy drives the critical research used by the entire organization, and we encourage knowledge sharing and inquiry at all levels. It’s not unusual to have a brown-bag multi-site conference one week on VR rendering coherency and the history of role-playing games the next week. Knowledge is power and we’re passing that power on to game developers.

San Francisco

Google “San Francisco”, and you’ll find a million reasons why SF is one of the country’s best cities. Its residents, and those that live in the city or in the surrounding Bay Area, enjoy great food, access to public parks, great culture, and we’re always prepared for an earthquake. Did you know that the SF airport is supported by 267 columns that rest on ball bearings, which allow each column to move up to 20 inches? Another fun fact: BART used to be fun. In 1976, the Powell Street Station was transformed into a video game arcade!


Austin is the live music capital of the world, renowned for its bikeability, and bats. It’s an entrepreneur’s and cheese-lover's oasis (more queso please!). Did you know that Austin is home to “Silicon Hills?” Like Silicon Valley, a large number of high-growth, high-tech companies have settled in Austin over the last 15 years, which has brought many jobs to the local economy. Another fun fact: Austin is home to one of the most unique (if that even describes it) cathedrals. It’s made entirely of Junk: beer signs, clocks, knick-knacks, gadgets, doodads, thing-ama-jiggers and whatchama-call-its.
