Join Our Team!

Are you a college or graduate student looking to get into the game industry? Look no further than Lantana Games! Each semester, we bring on board new students and give them the opportunity to contribute to professional products in the educational and kids gaming spaces. Our openings vary per semester (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer), so keep an eye here to see what’s in store.

Lantana Law: One Contribution = One Credit. Anyone who contributes at least one thing to our titles receives credit upon completion of their work, no matter how small.

Please note that these are non-paying jobs as we are an unfunded company. Instead, we offering tutoring, mentorship, testing, and other learning services to help you become the best game developer you can be! You also get to join us at gaming events (your attendance is on us), for lunch/game nights, and educational field trips in and around Boston (think museums, historical sites, etc.).  You are also free to make your own work schedule.

Are internships for credit? SOMETIMES!!! This is mainly dependent on your school, and a professor signing off on the internship. Check with your school to make sure.

What should I supply? Please email us your resume, as well as samples of your work, to dsilvers at lantanagames dot com. This includes a portfolio website, demo reel, or both.

Unpaid Internship FLSA Compliance

Lantana Games prides itself on being a studio where students can learn and gain valuable skills for the game industry and beyond. We comply with all six mandatory FLSA requirements for unpaid internships, including:

  • The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment;
  • The internship experience is for the benefit of the intern;
  • The intern does not displace regular employees, but works under close supervision of existing staff;
  • The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern; and on occasion its operations may actually be impeded;
  • The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship; and
  • The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship.

You can learn more about FLSA requirements for internships at the Department of Labor website.
