Careers @ WAYPOINT

Join our amazing team

Do you have a very particular set of skills? Whether you’re a web developer, graphic designer, illustrator or an After Effects guru, we’re curious to hear about your talents and find your place in the team.

Working in a boutique video game creative agency is a bit more novel than other office jobs. One evening you may find yourself designing an explosive CG animation and the next you’ll be wardrobe shopping for a life size statue. Though the nature of the work isn’t always predictable, it’s never boring.

WAYPOINT is located in Sawtelle, West LA. Often referred to as “Little Osaka”, Sawtelle has a phenomenal cultural and culinary scene, neither of which go to waste at WAYPOINT.

As the cliché goes: “work hard, play hard.” Celebratory meals and team building activities keep our tight-knit office synchronized and harmonious even during pre-launch blitz.
