1. Can I do my work experience at Jagex?

Whilst we support the principle of work experience for students, we are unfortunately not able to offer such placement opportunities due to the amount of commercially sensitive information and personal data that is used on an everyday basis within the company.

Additionally, all of the roles within the company require a large amount of specialised training, something that would make a short term work experience position impractical to operate.

Whilst this situation might change in the future we have no plans to start up such a scheme at this time.

We do, however, offer a one-year industrial placement opportunity for university students. For more information, please see the 'Careers' section of our corporate website.

2. Can I work for Jagex?

Should you wish to apply for one of the positions within the Jagex team then you will find a full list of available positions on our corporate website under 'Vacancies' on the 'Careers' tab.

Please note that all of the roles within the company require a large amount of specialised training so only genuine and highly skilled candidates will be considered. You will also need to be able and eligible to work in our UK offices. At this time, we are not accepting any contract, part time or “Work from home” applications.

3. What is Jagex?

Jagex, which stands for Java Gaming Experts, is the name of the company which produces the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, MMORPG, RuneScape, and the Java minigames site, FunOrb, as well as some other small games.

In December 2001 Andrew Gower, Paul Gower and Constant Tedder got together and founded Jagex Limited as a commercial operation to take over the running of RuneScape, underlying technologies and other games developed by Andrew. RuneScape had, already by then, become a game which had had over 1 million accounts created by 2001!

The three founders set out with two immediate tasks: firstly to make the operation of RuneScape commercially viable, establishing long term advertising sales relationships, and secondly to develop a premium version of the game for subscription-paying members.

Both of these tasks were achieved soon after, and on 27th February 2002 Jagex launched the members' version of RuneScape. In the first week after launch over 5000 people subscribed, making RuneScape instantly one of the largest pay-to-play Java games in the world.

In March 2004 RuneScape was updated heavily. The new version, which is often referred to as RuneScape 2 (RS2), features a completely new game engine and vastly improved graphics.

Since that date, RuneScape has gone from strength to strength; expanding as both a game - with regular updates giving new storylines, quests and maps produced by the Content Development team - and as an ever-growing community of sociable online game players.

In 2008, Jagex expanded its presence in the gaming industry with the release of FunOrb, a mini-games website offering players an unrivalled experience in multiplayer Java gaming!
