  • Why us?

    Because of people like YOU.

    Our team in LA is comprised of energetic and motivated people who value a culture that is diverse, inclusive, innovative, collaborative and driven. That’s why so many of our colleagues are long-standing. It’s a place where you can be yourself, where creativity is valued, and growth is encouraged.

  • Location

    Come to the friendly South Bay

    Only a few minutes from LAX, El Segundo is a hidden beachside gem that’s quickly earning a reputation as a unique corner of Southern California. With its friendly, small-town charm and an ever-growing community of diverse businesses, El Segundo has something for everyone from myriad coffee shops, restaurants and bars to museums and its very own music hall. If you want to venture out, the city’s central location makes it easy to access just about anything you can imagine, including year-round outdoor activities and live sports from the Los Angeles Lakers, Kings and Rams to the L.A. Galaxy.

  • Environment & Social

    An inspiring and fun environment

    Our newly renovated office is a comfortable environment that gives you a real home-away-from-home feel. In designing our new layout, we wanted to inspire creativity, collaboration, harmony, and - of course – fun.

  • Work-Life Harmony

    The flow of work and life

    Let's face it, life is complex with many twists and turns, highs and lows. Here at Square Enix, we respect your personal journey and encourage you to strike a healthy balance between work and home life – giving you the flexibility to adapt the needs of both, as needed.

In return, you are promised a robust competitive rewards package – from compensation benchmarking, health insurance and generous paid-time-off to 401K with company matching to a valuable tuition reimbursement program for employees who want a job-related certificate or degree.

Talent Acquisition FAQs

  • What is your approach on talent acquisition?
    We value diversity, innovation, passion and creativity at Square Enix. Talent acquisition is very much a two-way process: matching talent with business needs. We want you to feel inspired and pumped by the prospect of shared success - and we keep the process flowing with regular communication.
  • What happens after I apply?
    Your resume and cover letter will be reviewed by our HR team and hiring manager. If your experience and skills are relevant to the role, you will be invited to interview. Our interview process typically has 2 stages: 1) Initial interview to understand your experience and skills. This will be with the hiring manager and may be by phone or Zoom; 2) Follow-up interviews for a deeper dive into your experience and how this is relevant to the job. We’ll ask questions to see if you’re a good fit for the role and team. This is also a chance for you to meet some of your colleagues and the Department Head. You may also meet a member of the HR team for a ‘cultural fit’ interview as part of a second or third round. You may also be asked to complete a skills assessment, to evaluate your capabilities. We appreciate that this will take some time, but hope you see it as a valuable opportunity to let us get to know each other better.
  • What happens after the interview?
    We do our best to provide you with feedback within 48 - 72 hours, but this could take a little longer, depending on the number of interviewees, the interviewers' schedules, and other considerations that could cause delays. No matter what, our Talent Acquisition Partner is with you every step of the way, ready to answer any follow-up questions.
  • I got the job, what can I expect?
    Expect to bring your full self to the workplace and be ready to contribute to the team with an engaging mind, inclusive heart and know this is where YOU BELONG. Your new team is committed to setting you up for success in your new role, and you will have a 90-day onboarding plan to progress your knowledge and contribution to the organization.
  • How has Covid-19 affected the hiring process?
    Square Enix is committed to ensuring the safety of employees and candidates as we navigate the new challenges presented by the pandemic. We regularly review government guidelines and have opted for a 100% online screening process for all hiring activities, with interviews taking place over Zoom at a mutually convenient time. New employees are also onboarded remotely, where possible.
