ABOUT US

At Ishtar Games, we are committed to celebrating diversity, whether it’s within our teams or the games we develop. We respect equal employment opportunities, as well as non-discriminatory treatment of applications. We welcome everyone – without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, genetic information, religion, disability, medical condition, pregnancy, marital status, family status or any other characteristic protected by laws – and believe diversity is the greatest of strength. Joining Ishtar Games means working with video games enthusiasts, in a caring and human-sized team. Every day, we build and sustain together a safe environment for everyone. Come and join us!
