About Polyarc

Captivated by the continuing advancements of virtual reality, Polyarc's founders found it impossible to ignore such energizing and momentous creative possibilities. After leaving Bungie in 2015, they struck out on their own, seizing the unmistakable opportunity to make an impact on the future of game development.

Polyarc’s studio, located between the lively SoDo and Pioneer Square neighborhoods of Seattle, was formed not only to build groundbreaking player experiences, but also to champion a culture where deep collaboration, creative expression, and high player value are at the forefront of every innovation. Our team of accomplished developers continue to tackle the many challenges before us and we’re making great progress every day. We released Moss in 2018, but we’re not stopping there. Can’t wait to show you what we’re up to.


COVID-19 Hiring Update:

During these uncertain times and the rapidly changing environment surrounding COVID-19, all positions at Polyarc are subject to virtual interviewing, onboarding, and remote work for the foreseeable future. We understand that each person's circumstances may be unique and we will work with you to explore the options.
