WHO WE ARE

We’re ArenaNet—we’ve created a studio that builds online worlds infused with innovation, hand-crafted excellence, and creative passion. We're not the only ones who share this passion; gamers made Guild Wars 2 the fastest selling MMO in the West with more than 3 million copies sold in its first 9 months, and players and press have consistently called it one of the best games of all time.

 ArenaNet’s production team takes pride in guiding teams of developers to the highest-quality solutions possible. 

ABOUT OUR TEAM 

The ArenaNet production team values collaboration, quality, and execution. We know that it takes a team firing on all cylinders to build features that will delight our fans. We know how to balance working independently while staying team-focused. We work fast, we work together, and we're flexible. Join us and help make our developers' most exciting ideas into our players' most exciting experiences.

You’re comfortable supporting several projects and making sure feedback is appropriately followed up on and plans are updated as conditions change.
