About Joydrop/Mikutech

Joydrop/Mikutech is a full-service agency specializing in video game development and production. Under the branding of Joydrop, we craft experiences for the consumer on Nintendo Switch, Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox One, mobile, and PC. Mikutech is our brand for serious gaming solutions involving medical and commercial training using augmented and virtual reality. Both brands were established by Mark Mikulec, a veteran game developer on titles like Warframe and Bioshock, an architect of 3D graphics engines, who has been at the forefront of VR/AR long before its recent popularity.

Working at Joydrop/Mikutech means working elbow to elbow with respected industry professionals and up-and-comers in code, art, and design. It also means you’ll not only be given the chance to show off your expertise and finesse, but learn alongside similarly ambitious people.

Mikutechis located in London, Ontario, a city with a large game developer community and most of the amenities of much larger -- much more crowded! -- urban centers.

The job’s requirements may seem daunting, but if you’re fresh out of school, you’re in luck –we love new grads!

Academic experience (via group projects) can count just as much as industry experience.
