About the Company

Turtle Rock Studios is a multi-project, award-winning independent game developer located in the heart of Orange County, CA. We thrive in an open and collaborative environment which is led to this day by co-founders Chris Ashton and Phil Robb.

We focus on features that can be rapidly implemented and iterated on. It’s not the only way to make a big-budget, AAA title, it’s just our way.

If you care deeply about a feature, then you’re part of the process. We can only make this game if you give us your best ideas, we don’t care whether the feature is part of your job description. If you care about it, you’re a stakeholder.

We depend on you to know what to do. We don’t have time to micromanage people, we have games to make. If this all sounds good, and you think you can help, apply now!
