Why join Lightspeed LA (Irvine)?

Creation is the soul of our studio. For us, it’s not only about the exciting, new AAA open world game we’re developing, but also about team values and studio culture.

We encourage the showing of work that’s still in progress

We don’t attack or question unfinished work, we celebrate its promise

We have a No Blame Culture where we blame the problem, not the person

This is a safe place to fail, and we don't view failure as a negative, but as the natural result of pushing boundaries and exploring new ideas.

We create together. We face challenges together. Most importantly, we succeed together.
