Sucker Punch is an award-winning developer of Playstation games. We produced the Sly Cooper series of stealth platformers for the Playstation 2, which taught the youth of the world that stealing was OK (in certain circumstances).
More recently, we’ve been working on the inFAMOUS series of games, which explore the joy of having superpowers and the pain of sidekicks nagging you about how to use them. We work on one game at a time, on one platform
at a time, and all we care about is the quality of the games we produce.

We’re looking for people who share our drive to do stunning, ground-breaking, genre-defining games and want to join us at our base of operations in sunny Seattle.
