Job Description
About Our Team

We're a group of developers, artists, and storytellers that make games full of wonder, danger, and humor. Everyone at our studio, whether an industry vet or new voice impacts each game through collaborative feedback, mutual respect, and creative empowerment. If you want to make games that leave a meaningful impact on players: we want to hear from you.

We're looking for new teammates who deeply care about the work they do, the stories they tell, and the people they create with. As part of the Netflix team, we strive to hire the best and value integrity, excellence, respect, inclusion, and collaboration.

Learn how our story-loving game people came to join Netflix's team of game-loving story people.

Writing at Night School Studio

Every game made by Night School is built on a foundation of solid game design, an excellent, heartfelt story and naturalistic, free-flowing dialogue. The Writing Department is tasked with outlining satisfying narratives (in collaboration with Narrative Design) as well as scripting all the dialogue and directing the story's beats with level designers. Creating and empowering player choice, inserting emotionally-driven character moments, inventing personalities that feel uniquely real, and directing actors in voice over sessions all fall within the scope of Writing's duties. Night School's writers consider it an immense responsibility and great privilege to be on the forefront of what's possible in video game storytelling.

About the Job

Branching dialogue and player-driven stories offer unique artistic challenges to even seasoned writers. To be a writer at Night School, you should truly enjoy creating play spaces for players who want to push the boundaries of what our stories will allow. We're looking for people who love to write. For people who are excited by what interactive storytelling can offer, both to themselves as creative artists and to an audience wanting to be moved by what they are experiencing on screen.

As a Writer at Night School Studio you will...
• Write interactive scripts under the guidance of our Creative Directors
• Collaborate with the entire team to ensure a compelling and immersive narrative
• Contribute in writer's rooms for pre-existing and new ips
• Respond to internal/external feedback throughout the development process
• Generate outlines, treatments, and other support materials as needed

Ideally, you are…
• Experienced in shipping narrative driven content
• Passionate about stories across all mediums and familiar with the game development process
• Excellent at communicating narrative principles
• Great at listening
• Quick on your feet

We'd also love to see a polished sample of your work, which could be a sample from a screenplay, teleplay, play, or interactive game script. Please upload it as a single document with your resume below.
