Kojima Productions has opened new job positions while confirming that the Japanese studio is currently working on a new project. Although the applications are open worldwide, all applicants are expected to be fluent in Japanese as they will work directly with Hideo Kojima’s team at the group’s office in Tokyo, Japan.
The job list is available on the Kojima Productions website and LinkedIn page. At the time of this writing, there are 25 job openings available on the page. The positions range from programmers, artists, designers, writers, project managers, producers, to localization staff.
All positions require applicants to be fluent in Japanese and have passed the N2 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. The localization staff position especially requires applicants to be fluent in both Japanese and English, with other languages as an optional bonus.
