Longtail Studios strives to develop vivid characters and superior gameplay experiences. Our goal is to make the kind of games people seek out. Our games aim to be highly relatable, simply playable, and feature rewarding gameplay that makes them hard to put down. We want to make gaming an everyday part of your entertainment experience.
Longtail Studios is a videogame developer started by Gérard Guillemot, one of the cofounders of Ubisoft Entertainment. The founding mission of the company is to create next generation of character driven video games.
Longtail Studios is comprised of four development studios: Quebec City, Prince Edward Island, Halifax and New York City. Longtail creates games for the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and the iPhone/iPod Touch.
Longtail Studios doesn’t want to be the place you punch-in for work; we want to be place you are excited to go every day. The people who work at Longtail are passionate about games. They love playing games, talking about games, and of course, making games.
We believe better work environments, good tech and tools, open communication and a collaborative atmosphere make happy game developers and better games. Our teammates are the backbone of our company and we take care of them. Longtail offers comprehensive health, medical, dental and vision insurance programs for our employees and their families. Also during the summer, you can take advantage of a condensed schedule to allow you to have your Friday afternoons free.
Sometimes in game development, working over-time is unavoidable when you want to deliver the best game possible. But at Longtail Studios, we fully compensate extra hours with days off. When you give your best, we want to do the same.
Creating the best video games is about collaboration, teamwork and good communication between the teams. Our offices are relaxed, open environments, designed for game development. We make sure that everyone has a way to communicate directly and efficiently with their colleagues.
For the management of its projects, Longtail Studios uses the agile development method known as Scrum. It allows us to greatly improve the productivity of our teams and rests upon our company’s most important values: team spirit, good communication, simplicity, efficiency, quality, and flexibility.
If this suits you, do not hesitate to consult the “Career” section for all the opportunities.
