J!NX is a great place to work, so much so that you’ll probably just want to bring a sleeping bag to work and spend the night in the game room, underneath the TV, between the drum set and the Nerf guns, beside the Xbox, PS3, and Wii. J!NX seeks employees who are passionate about video games, comic books, RPGs, and all the things that makes J!NX great. J!NX is located in Poway, California, just outside of San Diego. J!NX does not pay relocation costs.
