Company Overview

Second Dinner is located in sunny Orange County, CA. We are a small studio that believes in moving fast and giving everyone a feeling of ownership. People who join us will have a massive impact on both the game and the company.

Whether you prefer the serendipity and organic collaboration of being co-located in an office, or the focus and convenience of being fully remote, Second Dinner is excited to discuss how to help you do your best work. Remote? In-Person? A little of both? Let's do it!

Second Dinner is fully funded, so we think we have everything we need to take our first game over the finish line. We offer competitive salaries, benefits, and stock options. It feels like a start-up over here, but without the risk of running out of money before our next milestone.

We are an equal opportunity employer that places high value on diversity and inclusion. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, disability status, sex (including pregnancy), gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, military status, or veteran status. A diverse team with varied perspectives makes us a better company and will help us make better games. If you can bring something new to the table and expand our point of view, that’s huge upside. Please apply!

We think Second Dinner is awesome! It might be awesome for you too. But maybe not! Let’s figure it out together. Now, here are some reasons Second Dinner might be a great place for you!
