An Insider's view of Iron Galaxy Studios

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As an Engineer at Iron Galaxy, I spend most of my time working with artists and designers. UI is a very collaborative area and requires input from just about everyone. Audio, localization, and monetization play a huge role in how UI functions. Collaboration is the best part of being a dev because it takes input from all groups to make great games!


UI Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started my career at Iron Galaxy as an individual contributor working on UI, AI, graphics, and build systems for mobile, console, and PC games. When I became a lead, I started with smaller teams and now I'm a client-side engineering lead. IG has a huge variety of projects it’s a great place to level up as a game developer.


Client-side Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

At Iron Galaxy Studios, we slice every decision against the razor of our core values, and the first and most important value here is People. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring ideas or ask any questions, and then we have an open dialogue where we hash it out, explain what we’re thinking, and how we got there, then push forward as a team.


Head of Strategy

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The teams at Iron Galaxy actively work to increase diversity every day. This is a challenging task, but we are confident that our efforts make a positive impact. We’ve developed strategies to increase the hiring of underrepresented groups and strive to create a more inclusive work environment for all employees.
