Wondering why Lucasfilm is such a great place to work? There are so many reasons, and here are just a few.
Ask anyone who works here and they'll tell you: the San Francisco Bay Area
is one of the most beautiful and interesting places to live in the world. Lucasfilm is located at the Letterman Digital Arts Center
in San Francisco's Presidio National Park. ILM is fortunate enough to have 4 amazing locations: San Francisco (also at LDAC), Singapore, Vancouver and London, all centrally located in these beautiful major cities in state of the art facilities. Recently announced ILMxLab will grow out of the Presidio office and Skywalker Sound is just up the road at Skywalker Ranch
in rural Marin.
A Rich Legacy:
Name any of the coolest (and highest-grossing) films in history and there's a good chance a Lucasfilm company played a key role in its creation. This isn't some fly-by-night start-up. We've been in business for 30 years and plan to be around for a lot longer. We're growing by leaps and bounds and are continually on the lookout for talent.
Art + Technology:
From the EditDroid to digitally created characters, the Lucasfilm companies have been responsible for some of the greatest innovations in entertainment. We like to think they're fostered by our exciting blend of art and technology. Whether you're left-brained or right-brained, you can play a role in our next great breakthrough, while learning a lot from your colleagues and experiencing amazing professional growth.
Ever worked at a place where playing with a light saber in the office is okay with your boss? It's okay to do here. Not down with dressing up? Casual is the way to go at Lucasfilm, where our executives are regularly spotted wearing jeans and sneakers. Remember sneaking into the movies when you were a kid? No need to sneak in anymore — employees are invited to company screenings of ILM films as they are released.
Tired of corporate cafeterias? At Lucasfilm, you'll enjoy a menu of awesome organic food including sushi, wood-fired pizzas and a salad bar to die for. Some of the food is even grown by us, in the rolling fields of Skywalker Ranch. Plus, you can enjoy your meals in our beautiful dining commons. All of our ILM locations are in neighborhoods that boast an exciting array of food options, from local markets to cafés and restaurants.
Teamwork is essential to Lucasfilm, where everyone from receptionist to CEO is treated with respect and dignity. It's the cornerstone of the company's culture. You'll be working side by side with some of the most exceptional people in the entertainment industry — incredible artists, PhD's, Academy Award winners, even one of the creators of Photoshop. We believe people work best when they're enjoying what they do, and we take pride in creating a relaxed environment.
The bar for excellence is set very high. Our employees shoot for the moon and often find themselves over it. All-told, we've received 41 Academy Awards and 28 Scientific and Technical Awards — and counting. If you thrive on doing your best, you'll be successful here and be able to take advantage of the unique career opportunities we provide. No matter what division you end up in, you'll find the work fascinating and challenging, satisfying your creative and intellectual spirit.
