    Many Games Industry peeps here?


    Hi guys

    I work for Jagex Games Studio in the UK and was interested to hear how many of you are actively working in the computer games industry.

    I'm hoping this will be a great place for improving my understanding of a range of games tech but also that it will be a place to connect with games industry professionals that could be interested in a career at our studio.

    So, where are you guys working right now?

    I don't think there are a lot of games industry guys in here. Though to be fair I don't frequent the C-family forums all that much.

    I googled your company and I didn't realize you made RuneScape. That's pretty sweet.

    What do you do for them?

    Hey Maniac Dan :-)

    I'm Jagex's Talent Sourcing Specialist, so I'm looking for people who might be interested in a career working on Runescape, our new project Transformers Universe or one of our many 3rd party products.

    Thanks for the details regarding the games population here. I think at the very least I should be able to increase my knowledge of some of the technical aspects of games development but I'd also be more than happy to answer any questions regarding work here at Jagex

    There's also not too many UK based people here, it tends to be the US and Asia mostly. Though there are a few notable active members in the UK.

    I'm a former web developer moved up to a product architecture role myself, so I'm out of the programming game entirely, except for the forums.

    I did some game work in college with the Source engine, I was a contributor to Holy Strike, which doesn't seem to have gone anywhere.

    I'm a Systems Administrator for a large clinic in the US (I administer over 1600+ servers) so not so much into the gaming industry or UK. It does look like your company must be expanding like crazy if you have 61 open positions!
