DISCLAIMER: While we are an educational game company, we operate on the assumption that current educational games suck. This position is for a commercial gameplay programmer to work with other commercial game studio veterans to build a FUN game that also happens to teach. We want someone who is ready to use their commercial skills to make an impact, but prior educational game experience is not required, or even desired.

About Legends of Learning
Through an innovative marketplace of educational games, Legends of Learning has created a captive audience of almost 10 million students in over 25,000 schools (and growing fast).
To capitalize on this guaranteed audience we have put together a top notch game development team to work on an all new at-home commercial gaming experience. We are looking for a senior Gameplay Engineer to help create this consumer game.
If you’ve been in the industry long enough to understand that acquiring players is often harder than building a great game, then you know the opportunity that having a unique access to a large, excited, and ever-growing audience presents to an elite game team.
The company headquarters is in Washington DC, but we know that to hire the best, we need to look beyond our local geography so the team is being built as 100% remote first. In addition, Legends of Learning offers, full health and medical benefits, stock options, solid vacation time, and a stable financial and workload environment anchored by our platform business (which doesn’t suffer from the issues of a hit driven game studio). We are committed to a healthy life/work balance and we are ranked as one of the Best Places to Work in the Greater Washington area by the Washington Business Journal.
