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.

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!

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

Shawna

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.
