An Insider's view of 2K

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

As a single mom, work-life balance is incredibly important to me. One of the things that attracted me most to 2K was the emphasis on creating an environment where employees are supported & empowered to excel in our work while recognizing that our people are our best assets, and to do great work, we have to take care of ourselves & families too.


Senior Manager, Talent & Organizational Development

What does your typical day look like?

I work in Mocap Post Production. I’m mainly responsible for Head Mounted Camera footage in the post-processing and QA stage. I’m also the Lead for our small third volume, which we use exclusively for ROMming talent and props. I support processing the Mocap data and QA which helps to prepare assets for delivery. It’s very busy and very rewarding!

What makes someone successful on your team?

Passion, Drive, Always Learning, Open to New Ideas and a Team Player.


Senior Director, Talent

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to continue being industry leaders with a culture that serves as an example. Putting the customer first is the only way to thrive in this competitive entertainment industry. Every 'out of the box' creative idea is a risk; letting yourself take these risks and be willing to fail fast will lead to long-term success.


Technical Director

What projects are you most excited about?

Our team is currently working on the “Great Scale Efficiency Project”. As 2K continues to add headcount and launch more titles, we’re coming up with new processes and tools to help keep everyone in sync and reduce frustration/churn. If there are any suggestions or ideas for how to make our processes run smoothly, the ops team wants to know!
