  • Considerate with feedback in both directions. We work to always receive feedback gracefully, deliver feedback constructively, and have discussions and disagreements respectfully.
  • Persistent at maintaining a healthy perspective about the larger game we’re building together. We do the extra work to value every team member's point of view and we’re looking for fresh perspectives, especially of those from diverse backgrounds.
  • Excited to work on co-operative games with a focus on fun experiences with friends. We're making the game we want to play!

About Treehouse Games

We’re a development studio focused on building collaborative games for a growing, global audience of players who use games as their favorite way to hang out together. Based in Los Angeles, Treehouse is venture-backed and built by industry veterans - half of the team comes from gaming powerhouses including Microsoft, Riot Games and the original DotA mod, and half comes from successful indie startups like Sirvo Studios and Industrial Toys.

We named our studio “Treehouse” because the world needs games that create an inviting hangout space where players spend time with their friends. We focus on the player impact we create through our work, we value feedback from players, and we believe the best teams are built on a culture of trust and respect.

Treehouse is making cooperative experiences that are all about quality time spent with friends. Games that do this well today see amazing engagement among audiences all around the world - we’re looking for diverse candidates with unique backgrounds to bring these and other meaningful perspectives to our team.

If you’re passionate about cooperative games and finding quality time with friends, we hope you’ll on the adventure.
