Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) is a world leader in simulation technologies, providing virtual training software to military and civilian organizations around the globe. Our core products are currently in service with many western military organizations in support of pre-deployment and other important training projects. By leveraging game-based technologies, BISim is able to deliver a highly advanced virtual training environment with realistic visuals and behaviors that can be applied to a range military or government agency training scenarios.
Since our founding in 2001, BISim has produced several serious game products. Our primary focus has been the development of the Virtual Battlespace series including our latest iteration Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3). The software continually evolves as our customers implement VBS software into existing or new training systems. In 2013, BISim was acquired by The Riverside Company and became separate from Bohemia Interactive Studio. BISim continues to maintain a technology sharing agreement with Bohemia Interactive Studio.
Working for Bohemia Interactive Simulations
BISim approaches its work differently than other simulation companies — we are a disruptive force for good in a historically conservative industry. While we draw from the latest technological concepts within the game industry, what we make are not games, but rather they are tools for training military personnel to develop improved situational awareness, be more cognizant of their surroundings, and ultimately be more effective.
The result is an improved likelihood of overall mission success, which could mean reduced collateral damage or lives saved. In an era where the battlefield is becoming ever more complex, only advanced virtual environments are able to provide realistic representations of these environments.
While we take our work seriously, Bohemians know how to have fun. Most are gamers at heart and love to play online during lunch breaks or after work. In addition, we like to give our developers a chance to get out from time to time, with organized trips involving canoeing, skiing or sailing.
A truly international company, our employees come from all over. In any given day, you could find yourself on a call with the team in Australia, talking with developers from all over Europe or North America. A healthy dose of humor is essential for anyone considering working for BISim, as it’s something that helps to bridge cultural differences.
Who We Look For
We look for people who can demonstrate that they are top performers in their chosen specializations. We look for employees who demonstrate that they are flexible, adaptable, innovative and work well under pressure. Bohemia Interactive Simulations is growing rapidly and we are constantly on the lookout for talented game designers, terrain developers, programmers, testers and artists. Other areas of BISim are expanding as well in the areas of business development, marketing and customer support. Above all, Bohemians are passionate about what they do as well as strive to better understand our customers and how customers can better use technology in training for difficult tasks.
Learning & Development
At BISim, we take personal development very seriously. Our best employees are those that take on new challenges and stretch themselves. In return, we support this with training, mentoring and a culture of continuous professional development.
