Company Culture

We are R&D engineers who enjoy tackling problems that don’t have obvious or incremental solutions, but instead can be solved by small teams with the right amount of scientific expertise and out-of-the-box thinking.

We enjoy making a difference by building elegant and forward-looking solutions that leverage mathematics, algorithmics, optimization, signal processing, deep learning, emulation, reverse engineering, automated testing, cryptography and our knowledge of system software architecture, in conjunction with a constant attention to detail.

We prize our engineering talent and diverse skillset, which ensures that not a day goes by without learning something new, a goal shared by developers and managers alike.

Nothing pleases us more than to see our technologies serve a seamless and fun experience in affordable products shipped to millions of players around the world, unknowingly benefiting from our NERDy interests.

You can find more details about us in this Iwata Asks NERD interview.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We believe that while individual talent can bring great ideas, collaboration between people from different backgrounds can make them even greater. This is why we embrace and celebrate diversity and strive to make all at NERD feel safe and welcome.
