How do I get a job at Crytek?

Please return to our career section, select a studio and apply for the position you are interested in. Please make sure to submit all requested documentation, such as a CV, a portfolio, samples of your work etc.

I have applied for a vacancy online, but what happens next?

If we think you are an ideal candidate, then we will contact you directly to initiate the interview process. However, if you do not hear back from us within four weeks of your initial application, then we have either already filled the role, or on this occasion your current skill set does not quite match our needs. Given the large number of applications that we receive we are unable to contact you individually with specific feedback. Hence, it is very likely that you will not receive a direct response message from Crytek; however we truly hope that you will continue to develop your skills and apply again in the future.
