The Studio 

Red 5 Studios, creator of the free-to-play MMO shooter Firefall (www.firefall.com), is a video game developer dedicated to bringing together millions of gamers from across the planet by creating immersive worlds, intriguing stories, and compelling characters.

Right now, at this very moment, Firefall is being played around the world. In the past month, we've had players log in from such distant lands such as Uruguay, Morocco, and yes even Kazakhstan. It is already a global community with a virtual store that is generating revenue today.

Red 5 Studios has roughly 180 employees--large enough to find the resources or talent that you need to bring your vision to life, but small enough where you have the opportunity to make a massive difference. Every employee leaves their indelible mark on the identity of Firefall. Everyone.

THIS is the place to come if you seek mastery of your chosen vocation. These are the fertile grounds where you can learn from like-minded individuals that come from a cornucopia of industry-renown studios, such as Naughty Dog, Bungie, Insomniac, Blizzard and Microsoft. Every employee brings a significant knowledge base and we solicit best business practices from previous experiences.

THIS is the studio to join if you want a chance to contribute to a fundamental shift in the way games are crafted. Firefall encompasses an original art style, a proprietary in-house engine, and a determination to make the free-to-play model work without being pay-to-win. We believe the free-to-play experience can be a win-win scenario for both the consumer and us alike. With no barrier to trying the game, we believe it welcomes the greatest number of gamers possible. By having to work for gamers' micro-transactions, it forces us to be ever vigilant on quality, forging a tight relationship with the community that will give the world of Firefall's New Eden a very long lifespan with years of continued development.

THIS is the place for you if you value autonomy. If you want a chance to stretch your skills and excel in your chosen vocation, without the constant Orwellian presence of a publisher or middle management questioning your every move, this is for you. We trust our employees. We empower one another to make the game that we want to play.

We're on a mission to create a living, breathing world unlike any other for players to explore. We aren't constrained by a specific title or role; and individuals are often asked to tackle many challenges. We understand the challenges of bringing a AAA online game to life, and we invite you to join us on this exciting adventure.
