“Irrational Jobs” Trending on Twitter: Former Employees Looking for Employment, Industry Responds

Earlier today Kevin Levine, the co-founder of Irrational Games, announced that he’s significantly downsizing the studio responsible for the Bioshock series. This meant that most of the employees have been laid off, barring about 15 developers. Since then, an interesting hashtag has made its rounds on Twitter: #irrationaljobs:


From encouraging words to job searches to even job offers, the employees have been getting support from many other industry professionals, including the folks at Oculus Rift and Ubisoft Montreal:



There have also been offerings from plenty of other studios and projects (such as Telltale Games and Disney Interactive’s Disney Infinity), as well as other professionals posting jobs from Bethesda, Double Fine, Monolith Studios and more. The support has been overwhelming and hopefully will aid all of the employees in their future careers.

    Well, they are definitely the “cream of the crop” guys if they were working for Irrational, no wonder they are getting so many offers.
    Hopefully all of them get hired.
