Working at Shiny Shoe
As a full-service studio offering design, code, art and audio services to a range of A-list clients, recruiting new talent with fresh insights is essential to Shiny Shoe’s continued success. Talented developers love working with our team because we balance making original games along with challenging consulting work for clients like Unknown Worlds Entertainment, Sony, Double Fine and Warner Brothers.
We work hard and value professionalism, but never forget that game development should always be satisfying and fun.
Polished is more than our tagline. It synthesizes our core philosophy, a commitment to refinement throughout the development process. From planning and budgeting through the labor-intensive tweaks that propel projects from good to great, Shiny Shoe builds games and apps so polished they shine.
Founded in 2011, Shiny Shoe develops games for PC, console, and mobile. We strive to work on creative projects and on the types of games the team finds compelling. Trying to do things no one else has tried before is what gets us out of bed in the morning.
Our latest title Monster Train was awarded PC Gamer’s “Best Card Game of 2020” and was nominated for Strategy Game of the Year at DICE.
We are located in downtown San Francisco, CA. Our office is near BART, MUNI, bus lines, and Caltrain for easy access.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
Our Latest Release
Monster Train is a strategic roguelike deck building game with a twist. Set on a train to hell, you’ll use tactical decision making to defend multiple vertical battlegrounds. With real time competitive multiplayer and endless replayability, Monster Train is always on time.
You can see our work on other titles like The Banner Saga Trilogy, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, Game of Thrones, and more on our website.
