Seattle Post-Intelligencer (03/07/12)
Over the past 60 days, recruiters have posted more than 1,100 online job ads for video game programmers and developers, a 40% increase over the past year and a 65% increase since 2010, according to Wanted Analytics. The most commonly advertised job titles include video gaming user specialist, software engineer, Flash developer, Web developer, and video game tester. The technology jobs typically require gaming knowledge; other jobs that increasingly require this knowledge include marketing managers, merchandise displayers, market research analysts, graphic designers, and retail salespersons. Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and San Jose, CA, were the cities with the highest volume of job listings for video game developers, but the best markets for recruiting people with these skills are Madison, WI; Denver; and Salt Lake City.
