Artix Entertainment, a developer of online video games, is working on several new projects that are expected to create new jobs in the near future. The company is currently looking for a mobile developer as they continue to grow in the mobile gaming market.
“If the projects we are working on now, specifically the 3D game we are building, take off we will need a much bigger staff,” says Adam Bohn who founded Artix Entertainment in 2002.
Bohn says he was working on a game is his spare time back in 2002, with no intention of starting a business. He simply was fulfilling a dream of making a video game. The original game, AdventureQuest, soon had millions of players and he started recruiting members of the gaming community to work on other projects.
“AdventureQuest was one of the very first, if not the first, Flash-based video games that could be played right in your browser,” Bohn says. “We now have six major games with two more in development.”
currently employs approximately 57 people, and has even more staff in the form of volunteers whom moderate forums. In addition to seeking a qualified mobile developer, Bohn says he may be looking for additional staff when his new games come out.
“With the projects we are working on, if they take off, we will need 3D animators and modelers, as well as 2D Flash animators,” he says.
As far as a time line for when those projects will be completed, Bohn says there is no specific deadline.
“In the gaming industry, a project is done when it’s done.”
In the meantime, Bohn plans to add a career section on his website so potential employees can check back for job openings.
