Black Shamrock is hiring in the areas of art, design, engineering, and production, with additional business support positions opening soon.

Gaming company Black Shamrock is expanding its operations to the Guinness Enterprise Center in Dublin city centre.

The co-development studio aims to create 80 new jobs in this expansion, bringing its total workforce to 200 by the end of 2023.

Dublin-based Black Shamrock was acquired by game development company Virtuos in 2017 as part of its expansion to meet increased demand for AAA co-development services around the world.

Black Shamrock has since expanded its own co-development capabilities through the global exposure it gained from acquiring Virtuos.

It has collaborated with some of the biggest game studios in the world and has several projects in the works.

“We are rapidly expanding all areas of Black Shamrock’s production to meet the growing needs of our customer partners,” said Lukas Codr, Managing Director of Black Shamrock.

“The game projects we are currently developing are some of the most exciting in the world, so now is the perfect time to join us if you want to work on the most impressive AAA games and do some of the best work of your career.”

Black Shamrock is hiring talent in art, design, engineering and production, with additional business support positions opening up in the coming months.

Founded in 2015, Black Shamrock specializes in RPGs and action-adventure games for PC and console. The studio has worked on games such as The Outer Worlds, Grounded, Back 4 Blood, Destroy All Humans!, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, and Pillars of Eternity. Currently, the Black Shamrock team has several AAA game projects in active development.

Tánaiste and Minister of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, TD, said Black Shamrock’s hiring news was “particularly welcome at a time when other tech companies are reporting job losses. jobs”.

“It also shows that the tax changes recently introduced for the digital gaming industry work,” he added.
