Now we want to welcome you with this opportunity to join the team and the Xbox Community to influence game development for decades to come.
We are a passionate product team specializing in 3D Game Content Optimization for the Computer Games industry.

It is beneficial to have a passion for computer games, and a genuine desire to empower game creators to achieve more. At Simplygon we are proud of what we have done so far but are looking to continue to innovate further within the domain.
