KIXEYE Recuitment Video

I just watched a video from KIXEYE where they try to recruit developers to work there. To say that the video was hilarious would be an understatement. They parody other games companies such as Zynga, EA, and Kabam. Priceless. Then KIXEYE CEO Will Harbin comes on and give a speech of why you need to join the company now.

KIXEYE was found as Casual Collective back in 2007 by two Flash ddevelopers. They are located in San Francisco. Last year they rebranded their company as KIXEYE, focusing on hard core gaming. They have a couple hundred employees. Apparently they are adding up to 30 employees a month. I saw over a hundred job openings posted recently.

KIXEYE has been in the news when a contractor blogged about the racist environment at KIXEYE. CO Will Harbin said he personally conducted an investigation that resulted in the firing of four employees. KIXEYE is looking at around $100M in revenue this year. They have around 5M users, and make money by selling speed ups in their games. They are unique in that they generte a lot more profit per user than other FaceBook developers.

KIXEYE offers an "unlimited" amount of vacation to employees. They also offer free food. Their FaceBook games focus on real time strategy. It looks like their games are still being developed using Adobe Flash.
