Job Openings

Because you want to work with exceptionally talented people.
Because you’re driven to create something ground-breaking.
And because you understand that your best work only comes out when you’re having fun.
It’s that simple.

Benefits and Perks:

We offer some of the best benefits and perks in the industry. Our industry competitive salaries are reviewed annually to ensure you stay happy, motivated, and are rewarded for your hard work. We are also proud of our comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, dental and vision coverage for you and your family, including luxuries like massage therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic care.

Other companies talk about work/life balance, but we actually do it. We offer flexible hours, generous vacation allowances, and Microsoft Clubs sponsorship to encourage social clubs (Hint: There's a wine club, an ice hockey team, and a Magic club!).

Other perks and benefits include an annual performance bonus plan, an annual Healthy Living Benefit allowance, a company RRSP matching plan, employee stock purchase plan, referral bonuses, and access to the Microsoft company store with great employee discounts.

Benefits and Perks:

Yes, we offer co-op placements! We are proud to work closely with a number of Canadian higher education institutions to source the best new talent that we can find. We offer 4 or 8 month co-op placements for Software Development Engineers, Artists, and Designers.

We strongly believe in providing our co-ops with real opportunities to make a difference in their careers. Black Tusk co-ops will get their hands dirty in a real development studio, working together with our teams and be directly involved with the projects.

We regularly post our co-op positions, so please check with your co-op coordinator at your school for more information.
