  BioWare Among Canada’s Top 100 Employers

Edmonton, Alberta-based game developer BioWare has been recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc., who compiled and analysed data from 55,000 applicants nationwide. BioWare's inclusion in the elite ranks is intended to indicate that the corporation exemplifies outstanding Human Resource practices, exceptional growing success and contribution to the community.

I had the pleasure of being invited to BioWare two times over the last 5 years, where I interviewed for (and failed to score) a designer role on Neverwinter Nights and writer role on Knights of the Old Republic. Both times I was received graciously and was introduced to a number of friendly staffers, including BioWare's joint CEOs, Dr. Greg Zeschuk and Dr. Ray Muzyka. These guys are genuinely interested in running a healthy, happy workplace, and tend to hire from within the game community where possible. Congrats to BioWare for showing Canada (and the game industry at large) how to run a profitable but people-oriented corporation.
