Last of Us dev’s Naughty Dog game director calls for applicants

Naughty Dog is looking forward to hiring across multiple disciplines. Positions such as monetization/economy designer have been open since March. Given Naughty Dog’s prominence in the games business, this is most likely because of the studio’s lengthy and selective recruiting procedure rather than a shortage of candidates.

Naughty Dog co-game director Vinit Agarwal added to the tweet. He said the devs are “aggressively hiring” for its new multiplayer project. Agarwal further added that the applicants, if hired, would “be part of bringing the cinematic experience between players in our new standalone multiplayer action game.
